PT. LOMA HS – SAN DIEGO, CA

Interview with Coach Brian Lamb

By Bill X. Barron, RMN Events Writer

Wrestling in the San Diego area has a long and strong history. Establlished in 1925, Point (PT) Loma High, is one of the oldest schools in the area. Current coach Brian Lamb has coached the wrestling team through two lengthy stints.

Since 1989, Coach Lamb has seen all eight of his kids – 5 daughters, 3 sons – wrestle, including coaching against one of his sons who took over PT Loma during the period where Lamb was coaching another high school in the area.

RMN Events has taken over the management of the D-Day on the Midway Wrestling Championships held each summer in San Diego. “Having participated in the previous three Midway tournaments, I love that RMN Events will be involved. It is important that this event run smoothly. Do it well and people will return,” state Coach Lamb.

Other reasons to love the Midway event is that “it draws a lot of spectators to this spectacular area and it highlights the high level of wrestling in the San Diego area. In addition, this event is connected with the military. Both the navy and army work out in the PT Loma wrestling room during our off-season.”

Noteworthy about the Midway Championships are the number and ability level of the female participants, especially from the native state. Coach continues: “Wrestling has exploded across the country. PT Loma sent its first girl, Raina Willink at 143 pounds, to State this year. California now runs the girls and boys high school state championships simultaneously in the same facility.” The same balance can be said about the competition schedule for D-Day on the Midway.
