LANCASTER — The Highland wrestling team won a Golden League match at Eastside High on Wednesday, 72-12.

Highland’s Thomas Gearllach won on a pin at 182 pounds and Highland heavyweight Isaiah Vasquez also had a pin.

Highland remains undefeated and in a tie for first place with Littlerock and Quartz Hill.

All of the Bulldogs’ wins were on pins.

“I know there is still room to improve,” Highland coach Tim DeVestern said. “It wasn’t like a clean win. It wasn’t a win to be proud of.

“I know there still room to improve if we want to win the Golden League title and that is our goal this year, to win league.”

Highland will participate in the Newbury Park Tournament on Saturday and will host Antelope Valley in a Golden League match on Wednesday.
