Wrestling Competes at Arab Invitational
Arab High School hosted one of the toughest wrestling tournaments in Alabama this past weekend, and the JPII Falcons claim two titles! The tournament featured athletes from 1A through 7A with teams from Georgia and Tennessee also competing. Jayson Spencer went 5-0 in the tournament, pinning everyone he faced to claim a tournament title. He was also recognized with the tournament's Most Outstanding Wrestler Award. Jayson completed the tournament ranked #1 in 1A-5A and ranked #2 in all of AHSAA. Gerry McCarron followed in similar fashion. He dominated in his first matches with four consecutive first-period pins. Gerry won his last match, outscoring his opponent 9-2 to get the decision. He completed the tournament with an individual title and ranked #1 overall at 170lb. by AHSAA.
Gabby Delany finished 4th in the tournament, losing a close decision by 9-7 to the #8 ranked 7A high school wrestler. Senior Chris Stokes went 3-2 in the tournament and just out of the top four after dropping a controversial triple overtime decision. The Falcons will wrestle their remaining duals, including a Jan. 22 home match against Athens and Decatur for Senior Night. The JPII Falcons have seven seniors on this year's squad. Come out and support our Falcons!
