The underclassmen-heavy and injury-plagued Bradshaw Mountain Bears had their trials this past Wednesday at the school's only home varsity wrestling meet of the season. The Mingus Marauders from Cottonwood dominated and would have swept all weight classes if not for Bradshaw senior Kyle Jarpe. He and his 170-pound foe battled hard through two periods, before Jarpe pinned him early in the third.

The only Bears to go the distance - hanging on through all three periods - were gamers Ian Cobb, 106, and David Snell, 152. Snell suffered what the referee called a "boxer cut" above his right eyebrow, and resumed wrestling after a lengthy blood timeout, but couldn't pull out the win. Anthony Monroe, at 113, almost made it through, but was pinned in the third period's closing seconds.

Senior Tomas Medevielle had to bow out of his 145-pound match early with a hand injury.

With no bodies to fill the slots, Bradshaw forfeited the two heaviest classes.

The Bears will compete this Friday and Saturday at the Sectional State qualifier, in hopes of making the big dance next week at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley.

Despite the home meet losses, the Bears should be encouraged after some powerful performances earlier in the month.

Bradshaw head wrestling coach Jon Vick said the Bears gave their strongest showing in years at the 41st Annual Joseph City Invitational Jan. 6-7. The Bears recorded 258 points for seventh place, and filled 11 of 14 weight classes, forfeiting the three upper weights.

Of the 12 wrestlers Vick took to the 16-team tourney, five placed.

He called it "a mainly green line-up without its leader," Medevielle, who was out with a foot injury. But a few veterans paced the Bears.

Zack Steck compiled the best tourney record for Bradshaw at 8-1. His only loss, in the 138-pound weight class semi-finals, sent him to top consolation bracket where he captured third place.

"Zack was his usual tenacious self," Vick said.

Cutting 10 pounds over the holiday break paid off for Jarpe, who also garnered third-place, with a 7-2 record at 170 pounds.

"Kyle continues to improve in all aspects of the sport," Vick said.

Monroe and Cobb have been vying all year for the varsity spot at 106 pounds.

"Monroe is better on his feet and Cobb is better on the mat.  Monroe won the challenge, but I was able to get Cobb onto team X-Men, where he pulled off several upsets and earned the right to face Monroe for the fifth place match, which he pulled off in another squeaker," Vick said.

Cobb finished 6-2 in his first varsity competition, while Monroe went 5-3 for sixth place.

Jordan Seeman had an identical 5-3 record and 6th place finish for his first varsity medal, but at 132 pounds. His coach noted Seeman continues to improve on takedowns.

Payton Shaw, Niko Long, Russ Dodge and Peter Hodan each got their first varsity nod. Shaw at 120, Long at 145, and Hodan, 182, all went 3-4. Dodge was 4-1 at 160 after the first day, but did not make weight the next.

"I thought they did quite well, considering," Vick said.

At 113 pounds, Logan Kellogg went 4-3, as did David Snell at 152.

Colton Audsley (3-2) had to withdrawn from the 126-pound class after the first day because of injury.

The Bears will compete in Sectionals at Shadow Mountain High School this Friday and Saturday, to determine State qualifiers.
