Bulldogs start mat season 2-0

KINGMAN - It's officially a fast start for the Kingman High wrestling team as the Bulldogs won Monday's tri-meet at Lee Williams against the Volunteers and Flagstaff Northland Prep.

KHS (2-0) took down Lee Williams, 60-16, and handled Northland Prep, 60-18. Lee Williams (1-1) got the best of Northland Prep, 53-18.

The Bulldogs were without three key seniors, Dalton Delong, Jared Brown and Cody Ricker. That gave KHS coach Brandon Clor the opportunity to put some underclassmen in the lineup.

"I was pleased we wrestled well," Clor said. "Our younger guys are developing confidence, and hopefully with our seniors next week, we'll be ready for our home match."

The Bulldogs host a quad meet at 5 p.m. Wednesday against Peoria Liberty, Glendale and Prescott Bradshaw Mountain.

KHS' Andrew Picard tied a coveted school record at Monday's meet. He pinned Northland Prep's Spencer Ridley in six seconds to share the Bulldog mark with Keith Milkie, who set the record in 2010. Before that, the record stood at nine seconds by 1982 and 1983 state champion Victor Martel.

The tri-meet's final match pitted KHS and Lee Williams. The Bulldogs earned eight pins in the win over the Volunteers: Dakota Tubbs (120) in 50 seconds; Jacob Tosh (145), 25 seconds; Tanner Mahlmeister (152), 2:20; Joseph Michaud (160), 4:28; CJ Gore (170), 2:28; Russell Williams (182), 2:29; Picard (220), 47 seconds, and Tim Georges (HVY) in 42 seconds. Lee Williams' Nick Verville (120) in 32 seconds, and Richard Serrano (132) in 2:00 won by pin for the Volunteers. Tiberius Williams won a 16-8 decision for the Volunteers as well.

"This match showed the kids they have to step it up another level, especially against teams like Kingman," LWHS coach Tom Jonseck said. "Now we can build and have goals. We see Kingman two more times, and now we'll see if we can be more competitive by then."

The tri-meet began with Lee Williams earning its first-ever varsity win in wrestling in its triumph over Northland Prep. The Volunteers recorded four pins in the win: Verville (120), 36 seconds; Jeremiah Graffius (160), 57 seconds; Tanner Kemp (220), 1:04; and Kyle Schoppman (152), 3:09. Williams (195) won by technical fall in the second period after building a 16-1 lead.

"That was big for them," said LWHS coach Tom Jonseck. "They were on cloud nine. Then we faced Kingman and came back down."

Lee Williams hosts Mohave at 5 p.m. Wednesday in its next match.

In the Bulldogs win over Northland Prep, it was Mahlmeister, Michaud, Williams, Conner Mahlmeister and Picard who earned victories without forfeits.
