AF Wrestling vs Provo

Wednesday January 4th, the American Fork High School Wrestlers got back to business. This time their opponent was Provo High.

The match started with JV. About halfway through the matches American Fork was leading in points but lost in the end. The overall score was AF 23 – Provo 39.

The Varsity matches were very intense and our Cavemen fought hard for their 37-32 team victory. However, it was Senior Tyler Horan (152) who had the night’s most critical victory. Before his match the score was close with AF leading 34 – 32. Tyler was wrestling Danny Shepherd, a Provo high Senior who is ranked 4th in State. Tyler was not intimidated, taking his opponent down, 3 times to be exact, and finished the night with a 10 – 4 win in his individual match.

Other Varsity wins included Senior Brayden Rhoton (160), Sophmores Andrew Bartholomew (126), and Ashton Bezzant (182) wins by pin. Sophomore James Lewis (220) won by default. Freshmen Jackson Wilson (106) won with 7 take downs and a near fall resulting in an individual score of 17-7. Sophmore Jacob Tam (120) won his match with 15-12, and Senior Richard Bartholomew (145) won 4-3.
