5 foes, 5 pins: Reindel wins prestigious Brown wrestling championship

SACRAMENTO – Maybe at the next invitational East Union’s Jaysen Reindel will be seeded first.

Reindel (285 pounds) was seeded third for the prestigious Tim Brown Memorial, and he went 5-0 in the two-day tournament at Memorial Auditorium with five pins and only one bout making it into the second round. 

“Going into the tourney we were seeded third and I was curious to see how that was going to play out,” Lancers coach A.J. Reindel said. “I felt we should have been seeded first, but there was some stiff competition. 

“I decided to let it play out because there is only one ranking that matters.”

After losing the first day last year as a junior, Jaysen Reindel came back to finish third. 

“I came into the tournament seeded third, and I was going to wrestle every single match the best that I could,” Jaysen Reindel said. “My first two years I never thought I would place at Tim Brown so being the champion is a little surreal.”

East Union’s Joe Luna (134) was eighth and teammate Tyler Diaz (115) finished in the Top 12, losing to the eventual champion fourth-place finisher. 

Ripon’s Donny Fontillas (140) went 4-1 and finished third.

The Mustangs drop to 2-3, 6-5.

“Their record does not reflect how good they are,” East Union coach Carlos Gaspar said. “They are a good team.”
