The Lehi wrestling team had a busy and productive week, defeating Lone Peak on Jan. 13, falling by a single point to Timpanogos on Jan. 14, and then winning four out of five matches at West Jordan on Jan. 16.
The match against the Knights went back and forth all evening, with the lead changing hands multiple times. It came down to the final bout, when Nathan Bulpitt pinned James Schofield at 4:05 in the 285 weight class to give the Pioneers a 39-34 victory.
In other contested bouts, Ammon Cannon earned a fall in 22 seconds in the 126 weight class; Cole Elderedge won by fall at 170; William McCleary got a pin in 4:52 at 182; and Isaac Terrell posted a 7-3 decision at 220.
The match against the Timberwolves was just as close and exciting, only this time the opponent prevailed 37-36.
All of Lehi’s winners scored pins. They included Parker Richins (106) at 1:00; Anderson Packer (120) at 1:18; Cannon at 5:35; Chans Black (160) at 1:11; McCleary at 3:02; and Bulpitt at 0:33.
