Warren High School's wrestling team defeated rival Downey on Saturday to win the CIF championship. Warren, which captured the San Gabriel Valley League title earlier this month, was seeded No. 1 heading into the playoffs. The Bears advanced to the CIF finals after beating a tough Paramount team. That match was tied after regulation and the outcome was decided by the fourth tie-breaking criteria, setting up the championship match against two-time defending champion Downey. After falling behind in early bouts against Downey, Warren built a commanding lead by winning its next seven bouts. With an insurmountable lead, Warren conceded the final two bouts to take the match 37-30 and win the CIF title.
