Competing as one of the larger schools in Division IV wrestling, Holbrook appears to have a solid squad, with the majority of the wrestlers posting winning individual records at the Winslow five-way meet held Nov. 19th.
In team scores the Roadrunners defeated Tuba City, 72-6; Joseph City, 66-13; Winslow, 56-17; and Chino Valley, 48-27.
Those on the wrestling squad at this point include Sam Plumb at 106 lbs., Theron Johns at 113 lbs., Levi McClellan at 120 lbs., Caleb McClellan at 126 lbs., James Ramirez at 132 lbs., Michael McMonigal at 138 lbs., Jedde Bowman at 145 lbs., Clayton Hunt at 152 lbs., Kevin Self at 160 lbs., Logan Tsinijinnie at 170 lbs., Nikko Ferniza at 182 lbs., Shem Bowman at 195 lbs., CJ Plumb at 220 lbs. and Mathew Gishi at 225 lbs.
In the four matches Sam Plumb went 2-2, including a forfeit and a pin. Theron Johns was 4-0 with three pins and a forfeit. Levi McClellan was 3-1 with two pins and a forfeit. Caleb McClellan went 4-0, winning all matches with a pin. James Ramirez went 3-1 with a pin. Michael McMonigal went 4-0 with a pair of pins. Jedde Bowman was 1-3, getting pinned in all three losses.

Wrestling fans who want to watch Holbrook in home matches have only two opportunities this year, with both coming up this week. After hosting a four-way match tonight (Nov. 28), the Roadrunners will host several teams on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, in the Pat Kenny Invitational. For the remainder of the wrestling season, Holbrook will compete on the road.
