City Championships 2017

CONGRATULATIONS

BRONCOS KICK Their Way Back into the Top Six Teams at the 48th Annual Greater Baton Rouge City Championships

Broncos Place 6th in the 48th Annual Greater Baton Rouge City Championships held at Catholic High School. Last year the Broncos fell back into 7th place with 90 points. A key point to note about last year’s tournament vs this year’s tournament is the wrestling for places. Last the tournament was wrestled to 6 places. This year was only wrestled to four places. Four places leaves out the opportunities the 5th and 6th places have. Bottom line the Broncos scored 90 points with 10 wrestlers placing 7 out of the 10 wrestlers with four of those placers coming in at 6th place. This year the BRONCOS scored 88 points placing 3 wrestlers in the top 4. Senior first year wrestler TRAY ROSS placed 4th in the 182 lb. weight class! Sophomore first year wrestler CALEB JACKSON placed 4th in the 285 lb. weight class! Sophomore second year wrestler WES BRADY won the City Championship in the 220 lb. weight class! If this tournament would have placed six places like the tournaments has been wrestled for the 5 years the Broncos would have placed another 4 wrestlers placing as many wrestlers as did last year. A big shout out has to go out Senior BRANDON COSSE for upsetting Number TWO seed in the second of the tournament at 154 lbs. JACOB GRICE, BRANDON COSSE, TRAVIS HALE, and KENYON MARTIN all were within ONE match of placing! Way to wrestle for the team! GOOD JOB BRONCOS! Next Week the Broncos will be competing at the 2017 Greater Baton Rouge JV City Championships at East Ascension High School! GEAUX BRONCOS

Congratulations to the Broncos

The Big Horse Tournament drew 23 teams from accross the state and from the city of Houston, TX. Parkway High School out of Bossier City won the tournament and Live Oak High School was the runner-up. Jordan Campbell from East Ascension High won the award for the champion wrestler with the most pins in the least amount of time.

The Broncos would like to thank all the teams for coming to their tournament to participate especially Houston Strake Jesuit College Prep out of Houston, Texas. This marked the firtst time Zachary’s Big Horse hosted an out of state team in their tournament. The Broncos would like thank the many volunteers especially Team Mom and Dad Nita and Kenyon Martin for spear heading all the volunteer help!
