Blach coaches' sons shine in wrestling

Blach wrestlers Tai Nguyen, left, and Patrick Kane placed second and fourth, respectively, at the county meet.

Standout wrestlers Patrick Kane and Tai Nguyen are proof that the grapple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Their fathers – who also wrestled in their youth – coached them this season at Blach Intermediate School, and the results were impressive. Seventh-grader Patrick, son of Falcons head coach Steve Kane, and eighth-grader Tai, son of assistant coach Nhiem Nguyen, both advanced to the county meet.

Testa returns to Los Altos as wrestling coach

Returning to coach the Los Altos High wrestling team after 16 years away from the program, Nick Testa admitted he has no idea what this season holds.

“I don’t have any expectations, other than that I want every kid who comes out to last the whole year,” he said. “It’s a tough sport, and I don’t want to see anyone quit.”
