Wick Finishes 5th In State Wrestling Tournament

Luka Wick, a sophomore at San Marino High School, finished 5th in the State at 145 lbs.

We are halfway through one of the better rivalries in the regional wresting, and San Marino High School’s Luka Wick can’t wait to get started.

Wick is a sophomore, but then again, so is Cael Valencia of St. John Bosco. Both most recently competed in the 145-pound weight class, and Valencia—for the second consecutive year—got the better of his counterpart.

Wick rolled through the competition in winning Rio Hondo League and CIF championships, but Valencia won the title match at CIF Masters and, last weekend, edged Wick in the CIF State meet, where Wick eventually finished fifth.

But the future is still bright for the son of Milena and Bill Wick. Luka is currently ranked #16 in the country for his weight class and is also #34 in the nation for the entire high school graduating class of 2021, regardless of weight class.

If the name sounds familiar, it should. His older brothers, twins Evan and Zander, won just about every trophy, belt or hat while at San Marino High School before graduating in 2015. They now compete at the highest collegiate level as members of the Wisconsin wrestling team.

A member of San Marino’s Titan Mercury Wrestling Club, Luka finished second in the prestigious Battle for the Belt tournament and placed in the Carter Classic. He also placed on the Super 32, which brings together the nations finest wrestlers.

Though the high school wrestling season is now complete, Luka still has the 2019 nationals and what Bob Wick calls “a never-ending string of competitions.”
