Bishop Bronco Wrestling at Rosamond

Bishop Bronco Wrestling

Last Tuesday, the Bishop Bronco Wrestling team traveled to Rosamond for for their first league action of the season. The Bronco team consisted of:
Sophomore Joseph Mayhugh at 152 lbs
Junior Angel Santana at 160 lbs
Junior Tyler Cox at 170 lbs
Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 lbs
Freshman Gabe Shoshone at 220 lbs
The meet started with Angel Santana wrestling at 160 pounds against a wrestler called “the strongest kid on the team” by his coach. Angel was able to take his opponent down but was
unable to pin him in the first period.  After a flurry of activity in the second period, with the score 7‐3 in Angel’s favor, Angel was able to pin his opponent.
The next match was at 170 pounds where Tyler Cox lost the match, but he did get the first takedown of the match.
At 183 pounds, the Rosamond team had no wrestler, so Orlando Ruelas received a forfeit.
Freshman Gabe Shoshone was very nervous before his first match as a Bronco, but those fears quickly disappeared when Gabe stepped on the mat in the 220 pound weight class. Gabe quickly took his opponent down and turned him to his back earning near fall points. Before his pinned his opponent in the 2nd period, Gabe had racked up an 11‐0 lead.
Rosamond had wrestlers in the next 5 weight classes, so the Broncos had to forfeit these matches, giving Rosamond a commanding 36‐18 lead.  In the last “official” match of the meet, sophomore Joseph Mayhugh completely dominated his opponent at 152 pounds. Upon reviewing the video of the match later, Head Coach Shaun Joseph said that “Joe used every move that we’ve taught him in that match. It was fun to watch.” After racking up a 15‐0 lead, Joe pinned his opponent in the 2nd period.  The meet ended with the score Rosamond 36 – Broncos 24, but with the Broncos winning 3 of
the 4 matches wrestled, the Broncos felt like they were the winners.
After the official matches, two exhibition matches were held: Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 pounds wrestled one of the highest scoring matches seen in several years, points being scored so fast it was hard to keep track of them. In the end, Orlando won by default.
In the other exhibition match, Joseph Mayhugh dominated yet another Rosamond wrestler and pinned him in the 2nd period.
The Bronco with the best record this season is Junior Angel Santana with a record of 6 ‐ 1 with all 6 wins being pins.
The Broncos next face Kern Valley at home on January 8th.

Angel Santana finished the day by pinning his opponent in just over 20 seconds.
Coach Shawn Joseph said, “I’m pleased with the quality of wrestling from both Joseph and Angel. I was very impressed by Joe coming back from a 0-8 deficit to tie the score and then pin his opponent. Angel continues to impress us with how quickly he learns moves and is able to use them in matches.”

The Bronco with the best record this season is Angel Santana with a record of 5 -1 with all 5 wins being pins.

Comments by Head Wrestling Coach Duffy Otteson – “Winnemucca is a very tough tournament (26 teams). There is a lot of big schools there and some schools that come down from Idaho and Oregon. Our kids did well and learned a lot from the tournament. We are still a very young team with very little experience. We are off to lovelock this weekend for another big tournament we are hoping to get everyone healthy this week as we have been sick. We should have 6 wrestlers going this weekend. We then will get a break and come back to Alamo for a tournament and we should be up to 7 kids for that tournament. The kids have been working hard in practice and are improving.”

This week Tonopah Wrestlers travel to Lovelock, NV to the Lovelock Invitational (Dec. 20th)
