Minus its top two wrestlers, Bearden still wins pair of matches during West Duals


Despite fielding a mostly freshman team minus its two most highly-regarded wrestlers, Bearden head coach Jason Andersen nevertheless saw his grappling Bulldogs win two of five matches during the West Duals at West High School Saturday, Dec. 17.

Though greatly boosted by forfeited individual matches from Central and Austin-East, Bearden took those huge gifts to give the program four match wins in about 12 matchups this season.

Junior Hanif Mansoor, a 135-pound class junior and one of the few Bulldogs with considerable experience, led BHS with pins against South-Doyle, West and Austin-East opponents plus another forfeit win.


“He did well,” Anderson said.

Freshman Ian Little (112) won in a first-period pin against Austin-East.

Bearden wrestled without standout grapplers Nathan Bevelhimer (152), out with an injury, and Andrew Birdwell, out sick. Though neither Bevelhimer nor Birdwell has placed in either of two tournaments Bearden has entered, “They are getting there,” Andersen said. “Those are my two leaders right there.”

Overall, “It’s a rebuilding program ... we’ve got a lot of freshmen here,” Andersen said..
