Though likely the smallest school at the inaugural Mile High Challenge this past weekend at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, Camp Verde came up big by capturing the team championship with 319 points. Closest competitor was Tempe's Marcos de Niza, with 262, followed by Marana Mountain View, 255 points, and Prescott, 248. Chino Valley placed eighth with 140 points and Bradshaw Mountain with 89 took 11th of the 13 teams represented from around the state.

In the dual rounds Bradshaw's Bears compiled a 1-3 record, defeating Wickenburg but falling to Morenci, Camp Verde and Chino Valley.

Five Bears brought home hardware, with sophomore Peter Hodan garnering the best record and placement. Hodan went 8-1 to place third in the 195-pound weight class.

John Trout earned fourth place at 220, while Jordan Seeman was fifth at 145. Jarett Cain, 126, and Matt Ehrlich, heavyweight, each placed sixth.

Prescott, Bradshaw and Chino sponsored the two-day holiday tourney.

Bradshaw Mountain head coach Gordon Cobb said he was grateful for the collaboration between the three area high schools.  

"The tournament was a great success and provided a great venue for wrestlers of all ages," Cobb said. "We are looking forward to making this an annual tradition."

Because the challenge will compete with another tournament in 2013, Cobb said they will move it to the second weekend in January in 2014. Sponsors foresee the challenge becoming one of the largest in-season tournaments in the state.

Bradshaw heads for the Winslow Tournament this Friday and Saturday.
