Five DHS wrestlers show Guts, get Glory

By
January 1, 2011 |

\n

All five Davis High wrestlers who competed at the No Guts No Glory Tournament took home medals on Wednesday in one of the top performances of the year by the Blue Devils.

\n

DHS head coach Ty Brown was pleased with the results, especially because some of the grapplers earned medals for the first time.

\n

As expected, senior Philip Toy paced the Devils, taking third place at 112 pounds with a 4-1 record. The four victories came easy — three pins and a major decision — before Toy lost in the semifinals.

\n

Leading 5-3 in the final period of that match, Toy was on track for another championship bout before his opponent turned things around with an ankle pick and won 8-5.

\n

Andy Schmidl (135 lbs) and Blair Kittle (189 lbs) both took fourth place in their divisions as each

\n

posted three wins and two losses on the day.

\n

Kittle had pins against opponents from Antelope and Lindhurst, plus a forfeit, while his only losses came against wrestlers from Ukiah and Natomas.

\n

Schmidl\’s most memorable match came against Austin Huynh from River City. Nothing seemed to work for the Blue Devil grappler earlier on and he trailed 4-0 at the end of the second period. However, Schmidl scored two pairs of near fall points in the final period — using an arm bar then a cradle tilt — to come from behind and win, 6-4.

\n

Another DHS athlete, Scott Derby, broke into the medal rounds at 145.

\n

After a first-round bye and a victory over Landon Walters of Elk Grove, the Devil suffered a narrow loss, 11-10, against an opponent from Rio Linda. Falling just short of reaching the championship match, Derby took sixth.

\n

“Derby had a good tournament,” Brown said. “It\’s a process and Derby, like many others on the team, hasn\’t reach his full potential yet. It\’s all about getting better and developing. I don\’t measure success on a win-loss record.”

\n

DHS\’ Navid Fani posted an eighth-place finish, despite wrestling up a weight class at 152 lbs.

\n

His most exciting win came over an opponent from Laguna Creek in a match that featured

\n

multiple lead changes and eventually went to overtime tied 11-11. In the extra period, Fani scored the first takedown and won the match.

\n

The Blue Devils now enter the Delta Valley Conference portion of their schedule. With a young and inexperienced team, dual meets will be challenging and Brown is hoping the varsity wrestlers will

\n

continue to step up and that members of the JV squad can fill in the open weight classes ably.

\n

DHS starts with the two new DVC members, Monterey Trail (on Jan. 5) and Grant (Jan 12).
