On Wednesday, January 13, 2016, the El Diamante Wrestling team started their first match of the year 2016 against Hanford. Each player took up a different opponent striving for the win; however, through all the sweat and loss of strength, they unfortunately had a total loss of 40 – 9 for varsity. They played another match on Friday, January 15, 2016, and El Diamante Wrestling had the chance to create a reputation ;however, the players ended up in a loss against Kern County in Bakersfield with a score of 36-42 for JV and 12-52 for varsity. Despite the loss that they had on Wednesday, the thirteenth, the players tried their hardest to beat their opponents at Kern County, and the loss on, Friday, the fifteenth, was unfortunate. However, inspiration from a crowd can be encouraged to help push the Miners to a better success considering how difficult their opponents are.
