The Chino Valley High School Wrestling Team is working hard over this Christmas vacation to get ready for the Mile High Challenge coming up this weekend. Chino Valley, Prescott and Bradshaw Mountain High schools are sponsoring the event.

"Some of the best teams in the state will be competing Friday, Jan. 4, and Saturday, Jan. 5, at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley," said head coach Allen Foster. "Camp Verde High School, Prescott High School, Marana Mountain View High, Tucson High School, and Marcos De Niza High School are among the 16 teams coming to wrestle."

The Cougars are 27 and 7 so far in this 2012-2013 season. Chino Valley came out on the win side in the Wickenburg Invitational as a team and brought home a third place in the Camp Verde Invitational. The Marana Mountain View Invitational was a disappointment. With four of their starting wrestlers out sick, CVHS did not place.

So far this season, freshmen Kendall Foster, 106 lb., leads the team with wins. Also doing well this season is senior 145 lb. wrestler Hunter Davis and senior Kishan Batcheldor at 195 lb.

"Returning state placer 106 lb. Kody Davis is out with a torn rotator cuff. I hope he recovers and will be healthy enough to compete in sectionals," said Foster. "This year's team does not have the two standout wrestlers like last year's team, but it certainly has a lot more depth. We are loaded with relatively unknown freshman and sophomores, but we are a pretty solid team with a lot of room to grow. We will surprise a lot of people."

The Mile High Challenge at Tim's Toyota Center will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. both days. Tickets are $10 a day per person or $15 for two days. A family of five can purchase a one-day pass for $30 or a two-day pass for $50.

A Varsity Tournament with Embry Riddle University hosting Chadron State University from Nebraska will take place Friday night. Saturday will bring more varsity wrestling as well as a middle school tournament.
