Mountain View High’s Tai Nguyen, top, wrestles Los Altos High’s Jason Klemens in last week’s match. Nguyen’s 13-4 victory lifted the Spartans to a 31-27 league win over the visiting Eagles.

Although he knew the meet was close, Mountain View High’s Tai Nguyen said he didn’t look at the score before stepping onto the wrestling mat. The 120-pounder was focused on beating Los Altos’ Jason Klemens in the final match of the night.

Nguyen wasn’t in the dark for long – before he could make a move, his teammates told him that the meet was in his hands – but the freshman didn’t flinch.
