The Atascadero High wrestling team finished second Saturday at its annual New Year’s Revolution tournament behind team champion Chaparral of Parker, Colo.

Three Greyhounds went undefeated and won championships in their weight class — Carson Block (195 pounds), Nick Ducasse (160) and Ryan Lombardi (170). 

Also winning an individual title for Atascadero was Cruz Mendoza at 106 pounds. Mendoza beat a Chaparral wrestler in the finals after he lost to the same wrestler Friday. 

Tannan Soojian was Atascadero’s only second-place finisher. Soojian faced off against Morro Bay’s Chris Maez in the 

182-pound final, and Maez pinned Soojian in the second period. 

Maez was one of two Pirates who finished first. The other was Richard Beecham (152), who dominated Chaparral’s Aaron Try 7-0 in the finals. Joe Morris (106) finished fourth for Morro Bay. 

Nipomo finished fifth in the team standings, Morro Bay was 11th, and San Luis Obispo was 12th.
