ALA Gilbert North Varsity Wrestling improved to 10-0 on the season in dual meets with a slim 39-33 victory over visiting Show Low Wednesday night.

Tyton Slade started changing the momentum for the Eagles with a 9-2 win where he looked in control the entire match. Trevor Tenney followed up with a surgical 8-2 victory, and now ALA was heading into their strength. Broden Harrold and Nash Jobe both pinned their opponents and Hunter Garrison won by forfeit. The deficit was now cut to 33-30 heading into the two final matches.

Bric Jobe pulled off a gutsy 7-6 victory at 220 despite several blood stoppages and injury timeouts. The match was now tied as a confident Seth McAfee stepped onto the mat and quickly pinned his opponent sealing the dual win for the Eagles.
