Phillip O'Shea Wins CIF and places among the best at the CIF State Finals

Phillip O'Shea finished his Capo Wrestling career in style this past weekend, finishing in the top 12 in the State!  Here is a career list of all of Phillip's amazing accomplishments & a quote from Coach Bordner:

*47-5 record

*31 pins (school record)

*Mann Classic Champion (48 teams)

*5 Counties Champion (94 teams, one of the toughest tournaments in the nation. Only 1 other Capo wrestler has ever won 5 Counties in school history--Juan Hernandez, 2012)

*ranked #1 in Orange County at 195lbs (2014) 

*South Coast League Champion 2014

*3x CIF placewinner

*3x South Coast League Champion

*CIF champion (the last one was Mike Maierhofer in 2009) 2014

*Outstanding Wrestler Award at the CIF tournament 2014

*Top 12 in the state of CA at 195lbs (there are over 920 schools that have wrestling in CA, so that puts him in the top .01% in his weight class in the state).

*Owns 4 school records in wrestling.


"Phillip has accomplished so much as a wrestler for Capo, and has set the bar very high for those who will come after him.  Being in his corner these past 3 years has been such a wild and fun ride.  We can only hope that his competitive nature in competition rubs off on future wrestlers.  Congrats, Phillip: you have made quite a mark on Capo... Through Phillip's accomplishments and the accomplishments of other individuals who have made their mark, we can continue to build the Capo wrestling program into something the community can be proud of and rally around.  It's a great time to be a Cougar wrestler!"  (Coach Bordner)
