Phoenix beat Mazama and North Valley to complete a five-match sweep and capture its first Skyline duals championship since 2004 Wednesday at North Valley High School.
The Pirates entered the night with three wins under their belt and needing a victory over Mazama to clinch the championship. Phoenix secured the title in dramatic fashion as Elijah Leonis stunned Justin Ivy, the likely No. 1 seed in next week’s district tournament, with a third-round pin in the 132-pound match.
“We’re pretty excited,” Phoenix coach Jon Gay said. “It’s all part of the process but it feels pretty good. Harry Mondale just passed away last summer and he started the program in the 70s, and to win it in the year of his passing — I feel pretty good for the kids.”
Leonis was down two points heading into the final round against Ivy before rallying for the pin in 3 minutes, 41 seconds.
Also coming up big for the Pirates against Mazama was heavyweight Salvador Castanon, who pinned Isaac Pena in 4:29.
The Pirates also got pins by Jacky Hawkins (145), Elijah Santana (152), Mike Walker (160), Dane Johnson (182) and Ezra DeLuca (113).
Phoenix finished the night with a resounding 63-9 thumping of North Valley, scoring four pins, a technical fall and a major decision.
Hawkins opened that one by pinning Brandon Brinkman in the 145-pound match in 1:26.
