By JEFF CASPERSEN, Jr. The Daily Journal BAKERSFIELD - A second-period pin in a quarterfinal match cost Ukiah senior Jacob Chavez a shot at a California Interscholastic Federation wrestling championships at Bakersfield's Centennial Garden and Convention Center Friday. Palo Verde senior Ernie Shaw knocked Chavez off, sending the Wildcats senior to the consolation bracket when action resumes this morning. The best Chavez can fare now is a third-place finish. Chavez's path to the quarterfinal included a first- round win by fall (3:12) over Oakland High's Scott Zedd and a 9-1 decision over Ayala senior Nick Ketelsleger, who entered the state tournament ranked fourth in California. Fresh off a disappointing second-place finish at last week's North Coast Section championships, Chavez entered the GIF affair under a cloud of extreme determination. In last week's heavyweight finale, De La Salle's Matt Drazba scored a late deuce to topple Chavez, who led 1-0 entering the third period. Drazba won the match 2-1. "That sucked," Chavez recollected. "I slipped up. It was pathetic. I had it and I just relaxed a little bit and slipped." Though disappointing, the loss has seemingly recali- brated Chavez's approach for the better, despite the quarterfinal setback. "I'm not going to watch any more matches," he said. "I've got to give it 110 percent." Seniors Justin Dygert and Tim Ramos suffered early exits Friday. Dygert, a 103-pounder, saw his high school career come to an end after a pair of losses. A first-round defeat to Farmersville sophomore Pedro Olea (4-2 decision) and a 10-5 consolation setback versus Fremont sophomore Filip Novachkov. Ramos, Ukiah's lone North Coast Section champion (160 pounds), ended his prep career with a 0-2 showing at state. The senior dropped his opening-round match against Ontario senior Kwabena Agyeman by the slimmest of margins, 8-7. Ramos was then decisioned . by Coalinga sophomore Matt Boger (11-3) in the second round. Chavez was disappointed to see his teammates fall from contention on Day 1. "I kind of wanted somebody to be with me," the heavyweight said before lauding the feats of a fellow Wildcat state qualifier. "I'm especially proud of Tim. He won NCS. That's a major accomplishment." The wrestling resumes this morning at 9 a.m. with third-round consolation action. Notes: This year marks the first time the GIF has used Bakersfield,s Centennial Garden as the site for its state meet. From 1987 through 2003, the state meet was held at the University of the Pacific'. Spanos Center. However, its 6,100 seating capacity was outgrown by the meet's popularity. The Garden is home to the Bakersfield Condos, a professional hockey team, the Bakersfield Blitz Arena Football League team and Cal-State Bakersfield basketball.
