Tuesday, November 14, 2017 – The Chandler Prep Middle School wrestling team took to the mats earlier this week, welcoming six other schools for the season-opening CAA multimeet in the CPA gym. Our Titan wrestlers competed in five dual meets, winning four of them in convincing fashion, including a big 42-18 victory over Leading Edge-Maricopa. The fifth dual meet vs American Leadership-Queen Creek came down to the wire, with ALA-Queen Creek winning by a slim 40-36 margin. Individually, 5th grader Tim Terrones (84 lbs) set the tone by winning three matches, with two coming by pin. Also unbeaten on the evening were Alex Wittrock (91 lbs) and Sebastian Navarro (144 lbs). Returning CAA placer Conner Mason (120 lbs) won both of his contested matches by pin, but dropped a heartbreaker in an exhibition match with returning CAA champion Stetson Brown of ALA-Queen Creek 5-2, the winning points coming in the final period. One more bright spot came from 6th grade newcomer Creon Fulgham (112 lbs), who finished the night with a 2-2 record, earning his first career win in dramatic fashion, coming back from a 6-3 deficit with 5 points in the final seconds.
All in all, each and every scholar-athlete wrestled with great effort and great hearts! For that, we can be proud! #TitanUp
