Pirates News · Hansen’s bid for the podium ends in quarterfinals


Oceanside High’s Shane Hansen’s bid for a spot on the podium fell  a little bit short at the CIF State Wrestling Championships at the Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield last weekend.

Hansen lost to eventual 195-pound champion Guillermon Escobedo of Los Altos , 6-0, in the winner’s bracket quarterfinals. The senior then dropped his consolation round match to Donivan Giangregorio by fall (3:52).

Still, Hansen, who finished the year with a 37-6 record, has plenty of accolades in what is perhaps the greatest wrestling career at OHS. Hansen compiled numerous invitational titles, along with three consecutive CIF crowns and two CIF Masters championships.
