Despite missing two of its veterans, Bradshaw Mountain High's wrestling team won both duals in the final meet before Christmas vacation. Thursday at Phoenix Sunnyslope, the Bears outscored the host Vikings and the Washington Rams, while forfeiting only two weight classes because of illness and injury. Bradshaw head coach Gordon Cobb said he expects seniors Zack Steck and David Snell to return after the break.

Against Washington and especially in the upper brackets, the Bears threw their weight around to good advantage for the 54-23 victory. Bradshaw got pins from Cody Russell, 138 pounds, Peter Hodan, at 195, John Trout, 220, and Lucas Cook, heavyweight.

The Sunnyslope dual became a duel of statistics when the score was knotted 42-42 after the final match. Because the nature of team wrestling allows for no overtime, officials compared certain criteria in each team's scores to determine the winner. The Bears and Vikings tied in the first four criteria: number of wins, number of forfeits, number of pins, and number of first points scored. Near-fall total points - 14-9 - finally gave Bradshaw an edge over Sunnyslope for the 43-42 win. This time mostly the lower weights dominated as Kevin Alderidge, 120, Ian Cobb, 126, Jordan Seeman, 132, Cody Russell, 138, and Russ Dodge, 170, helped add to the near-fall total and also recorded pins for the Bears.

"We are looking forward to hosting the first Annual Mile High Challenge with Prescott and Chino Valley on Jan. 4 and 5 at Tim's Toyota Center," Cobb said.

Competition over the two days in Prescott Valley will include a junior varsity tournament on Friday, Jan. 4, a middle school tournament on Saturday, Jan. 5, and the varsity tournament on both days. Prior to the championship rounds on Saturday, fans will be treated to the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University versus Nebraska Chadron State dual.
