Eagles wrestling came up with a big Continental League win.
Heritage High School wrestling recently defeated the
always-tough league opponent Chaparral with a dual final of
“We won nine of the 14 matches and that was big,” Eagles coach
Ray Barron said. “Our two big boys beat their two best wrestlers by
pin, Tyler Carnefix and Jeremy Todd. Jeremy took care of a 6-foot-5
inch, 270-pound wrestler in a great match.”
Carnefix defeated Brandon George in the 215-pound bout, and Todd
beat Nick Tokarsky in the heavyweights match.
Heritage dominated the light middleweights with Garett Solomon
winning the 119 bout with a fall over Jacob Tarr. Brandon Gallagher
had a technical fall over Ryan Fifer at 125. Josh Bohney fell
Mitchel Ennis at 130. Zach Carrizales pinned Cameron Reed in the
first period of the 135 match. Ben Ulvang fell Hayden Star at
At 160 pounds, Billy O’Brien earned a 6-1 decision over Sergio
Raphael, and Jesus Flores pinned Kyle Villanueva at 171.
Heritage saw tournament action Jan. 15 at Arvada West with just
about all Top 10 teams of the state in attendance, which Barron
described as a mini-state meet.
“We lost some tough close ones that kept some of our wrestlers
from advancing to the placing rounds, but Jeremy Todd won it all,
pinning all of his opponents in the first period,” Barron said.
At the meet, Bohney got in four matches for the day, and
O'Brien, Gallagher, Jesus Flores, Estevon Sandoval and Carrizales
all got in three matches for the day.
“We had a great chance to see who our competition is, as we head
in to regional's and state and definitely come away with a better
perspective of what we have to do to get ready for the war ahead,”
the coach said.
Heritage had another tough week ahead of it being host to a dual
against Castle View Jan. 20 in Littleton and traveling to Thomas
Jefferson the day after. The following Saturday, the Eagles were
among the mix of 20 teams at the Northglenn Invitational.
“Northglenn will be another big test for our team with some of
the top teams from A-West and others to make it an interesting
day,” Barron said.
Results from those meets were unavailable by press time.
