This weekend the Brophy grapplers competed in the AIA Division I Section 4 Wrestling Championships. There was a lot at stake … the top four wrestlers in each weight class punched their tickets to the state championships, which occur on February 11 and 12 in Prescott. And when the dust settled inside the Boulder Creek High School gymnasium it was Brophy Prep’s name standing atop of the leader-board with 187 points (Mountain Ridge placed second with 180 points). How did the team score so many points? Pins! Technical falls! Guts! In all, 10 Brophy student-athletes will compete in Prescott at the 2016 AIA State Championships. They are: Elijah Lee, Luke Jacobs, Val Hernandez, Christian Sulit, Anthony Brady, Gabe de la Rocha, Jacob Robles, Sebastian Espinosa, Brogan Smith, and Brian Olmedo.

Weekend Wrestling Results

On January 18, 2016, in News, by Bill Woods

BROPHY SENIOR ANTHONY BRADY ’16, THE FIRST BRONCO TO MEDAL AT FLOWING WELLS IN FIVE YEARS

We knew it would be a tough weekend in Tucson during the annual Flowing Wells Invitational, but we didn’t know that we would come away with a medal –the first in five years. Brady_AnthonyFlowing Wells featured the top Arizona scholastic teams from all four divisions (which include Sunnyside, Ironwood Ridge, and Mountain View), and out-of-state teams from New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado. As a team, Brophy finished 25th out of 39 teams. Individually, Brophy senior Anthony Brady ’16 put the state on notice with a fifth-place finish at 138-pounds. Brady scored wins over several tough opponents including a win over a Sunnyside prospect. Luke Jacobs made it to the quarter-finals at 113-pounds, but fell to two-time state champion from New Mexico. Other top performers were super-frosh Jacob Robles (170-pounds) who notched four wins and Heavyweight Brian Olmedo, who went 2-2. The Broncos face North Canyon High School, away, this Wednesday.

 

Wrestling-Brophy Defeats 2

On January 14, 2016, in News, by Bill Woods

Bronco Wrestlers Defeat Defending Sectional Champions Mountain Ridge 34-26; Grapplers Also Outscore Highland High 45-19; Gabe de la Rocha Ignites Crowd

The Broncos won its tenth dual meet of the season last night when it defeated Highland High School and Mountain Ridge High in a tri-meet in Glendale. Big winners against Highland were Luke Jacobs, who continues to impress this coach, Josh Beram, Anthony Brady, Jacob Robles, and Brian Olmedo, who cemented the Brophy win by pinning his Highland adversary.

In the second match of the night, versus defending sectional champions Mountain Ridge, all Bronco wrestlers showed their mettle, but it was Gabe de la Rocha and Brogan Smith who led the team with impressive wins. Smith flattened his opponent in the second period with an impressive inside-out trip, and de la Rocha took his contestant into overtime where he out-gutted him. When Gabe secured the winning takedown for the Broncos the crowd exploded with cheers.

It’s important to note that Josh Beram won both of his matches, Christian Sulit defeated an all-state opponent from Highland, and Sebastian Espinosa defeated an all-sectional opponent from Mountain Ridge.

 

Mile High Wrestling Tournament

On January 10, 2016, in News, by Bill Woods

Luke Jacobs Steals the Show in Prescott. Val Hernandez, Anthony Brady Also Turn in Impressive Performances

The Brophy Broncos traveled to Prescott this weekend to compete in the Mile High Challenge, a tournament comprised of thirty-two teams from five states (including out-of-state foes from Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas). Every student-athlete wrestled well, but five grapplers came home with medals. They are:

· Elijah Lee, who placed sixth at 106-pounds. Lee had an extremely tough weight class with state champions hailing from several different states competing in it.

· Luke Jacobs, who went made the finals and finished as the runner-up in the 113-pound weight class. Jacobs is becoming a leader, in the state, in this lightweight division. His runner-up finish here and his runner-up finish at the Liberty Classic supports this notion.

· Val Hernandez, who weathered a quarterfinal upset to take fourth place at 120-pounds. Val is known for his chain wrestling, and that’s what he did this weekend in Prescott to earn fourth place.

· Christian Sulit, who utilized his impressive throws to pin several opponents. He placed sixth at 132-pounds.

· Anthony Brady, perhaps the most fluid Bronco, had a very impressive tournament finishing fourth at 138-pounds. Brady used mixed-direction steps to win several bouts in the mountains this weekend.

In addition, Josh Beram, Hunter Talbo, Gabe dela Rocha, Jacob Robles, Sebastian Espinosa, Brogan Smith, and Brian Olmedo wrestled tough and are primed for the next tournament, which takes place on January 15 and 16 at Flowing Wells High School in Tucson.​
