Bob Jones Claims AHSAA Class 7A Wrestling Duals

    BIRMINGHAM – Bob Jones High School downed Thompson 34-29 in the finals Saturday to claim the AHSAA Class 7A Wrestling Duals tournament championship at the Birmingham CrossPlex’s Bill Harris Arena.
   The Patriots of Coach Matt Sweatman went into the final match Saturday nursing a slim 31-29 lead.  The title boiled down to the 170-pound battle between Nick Mothersele of Bob Jones and William Browder of Thompson. Neither wrestler disappointed the crowd with the match going down to final seconds before Mothersele emerged with an 11-8 decision and Patriots improved to 22-1 in dual matches this season.
    Zaderian Toney (113 pounds) and Seth Dupree (220) won their matches for Bob Jones with pins Saturday, while Thompson’s Chandler Akins (126), Gabe Hixenbaugh (132), Jackson Araneta (145) and Seth Whitlock (285) posted pins for the Warriors of Coach Sean Weltzin.
    The best match of the finals came in the 138-pound match between Bob Jones’ Jordan Whalen and Thompson’s Nathan Roberts. Whalen emerged with a 5-3 decision.
    Oxford won the Class 6A Duals title Friday night beating Gardendale 30-23. Defending Class 1A/5A Duals champion Arab was scheduled to meet Cleburne County in the 2018 finals Saturday afternoon.
