RAWLINS – Rawlins’ “Team G” USA Boxing performed brilliantly on Saturday, producing five victories during the first annual Team G Invitational inside the Carbon County Fairgrounds.
“The event came out very good,” said Team G coach Cesar Garcia. “I was very impressed.”
The highly talked about 16-year-old triplets – Jackie, Lizbeth and Monica Garcia – lived up to the family name as all three produced wins.
For Jackie, she managed to win by decision against Haily Cancele, a Boston-based fighter, in the 106-pound division. Meanwhile, sister Lizbeth beat Denver fighter Adelita Rivera, in the 114-pound decision.
As for final sister Monica, she would claim a fine victory against Mariah Bhae, who’s a national champion fighter based out of Arizona.
For the triplets’ twin brothers, Ivan and Aden, they would end the event split between one loss and one win.
Ivan would lose on a split decision against Xavier Cordova, a Cheyenne fighter with Southside Sluggers.
Aden, however, was victorious against Gino Brown, also of Southside Sluggers, in the 65-pound weight class.
For the big boys, Team G fighter Eli Trujilo took the W against Daniel Campagena, out of Rapid City, So. Dak., in the 150-pound class.
Now, Team G gets set to fight in Cheyenne on Saturday. The Garcia twins are slated for two matches.
Ivan gets set to fight Paul Martinez Jr., and Aden against Michael Martinez – both of Little Brawlers Boxing out of Denver.
Also, Team G has three fighters who will be competing in the National Junior Olympics, June 23-June 30, in Madison, Wisc. This includes Jackie, Monica and Aden Garcia.
