Prescott dominated the first Larry Legler Tri-City Cup wrestling meet between the Badgers, Bradshaw Mountain Bears and Chino Valley Cougars this past Wednesday at Prescott High.

Legler, a longtime coach who positively influenced countless Tri-City area wrestlers, died this past year.

Sadly, the meet became a double tribute after the Jan. 11 death of Prescott wrestler Joe Arter in an auto accident. When the 220-pound match was announced, Badgers' head coach Eric Koehler and Bears' head coach Gordie Cobb took center mat and raised each other's arms in a double forfeit in honor of Arter.

Bradshaw, a team weighty with youth but light on experience, learned some new skills, despite not winning a match in the opener against Prescott. Sophomore Ian Cobb came closest, with a 10-8 loss to Badger Braden Grauberger in the 120-pound bout.

Immediately following the Prescott match, the Bears fared better in their dual against Chino, another team heavy on underclassmen.

Soph Colton Audsley repeatedly took down Taylor Marshall for a 15-3 victory at 145 pounds. Classmate Russ Dodge and Tazmon Sproul were tied 3-3 with less than a minute remaining in the second period when the Bears' sophomore pinned the Cougar junior.

Wrestling in the 195-pound weight class, freshman John Trout easily handled soph Levi Arce, winning by fall midway through the second period after a 5-0 lead in the first.

Cobb went the distance against junior Stockton Heiner, but lost the match 6-2 after three periods of grappling.

The Bears will compete in sectionals this Friday and Saturday at Glendale's Ironwood High School.
