Three Bishop Dunne Falcon Wrestlers head to State

The Bishop Dunne Wrestling team had a strong showing at the TAPPS state wrestling tournament.

Held last Saturday, February 7, 2015, at Bishop Lynch High School, the Bishop Dunne Falcons placed 11th in the state. 

Junior John (Andy) Rubarth placed third in the 160 pound weight class giving him All State honors. He defeated wrestlers from St. Thomas Houston, the Emery School of Houston, and the Texas School of the Deaf to claim his third place honors.

Sophomore David Briseno competing in the 182 pound weight class and David Rodriguez wrestling in the 132 pound weight class made it to the consolation semifinals, just one match away from the third place match.

Junior David Rodriguez defeated a wrestler from Veritas and sophomore David Briseno defeated a wrestler from St. Thomas, Houston.

Coach Stephen Guerrero, who has been at Bishop Dunne for 18 years, said, “These three wrestlers now qualify for and will wrestle at the Texas Prep State wrestling tournament on February 20 and 21, 2015, at McKinney Christian, and from there, have a chance at qualifying for the National Prep wrestling tournament.”
