A proud moment for one of our 8th Grade students, Daniel Herrera, and his wrestling team, California Gold! The team won the 2018 VAC National Holiday Duals in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This is considered one of the toughest youth dual wrestling tournaments in the country in which elementary and middle school wrestlers from across the country compete to help their team become champions. California Gold made history this year by becoming the first team from California to win this event and the first state to sweep both divisions in 12 years; and it was with 1:00 minute left in the third period that OLPH School 8th Grader Daniel Herrera earned the fall that gave Cali Gold the win.
