Bronc takes 5th in nation

Illness hampers Del Norte star

Before taking the mat for the fifth-place match at the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va., on Sunday, Roger “Bronc” McCovey considered forfeiting.

The two-time California heavyweight wrestling champion from Del Norte High  had been suffering from a  flu bug since Sat­urday.

He felt nauseous, like he was going to throw up, and his arms and legs felt heavy.

But Bronc decided to give it all he could muster and wrestle. He then dominated Justin Britt of Missouri, 11-1, to take 5th place and earn All-American honors for the second straight year.

“He was a big guy,” McCovey said in a telephone interview Sunday night, adding, “I wrestled defensively.”

McCovey places 5th nationally

For the second straight year, Roger “Bronc” McCovey has earned  All-American wrestling honors.

Read more...The Del Norte High School senior heavyweight downed Justin Britt of Missouri 11-1 Sunday afternoon to take 5th place in the extremely competitive 64-man heavyweight field at the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va.

Last year at the junior nationals in Virginia Beach, McCovey took third. The top eight finishers earn All-American honors.

While the two-time undefeated state of California heavyweight champion did not fulfill his goal of becoming a national champion, being an All-American for two straight years is a stellar accomplishment for any wrestler and cements his status as one of the top grapplers in the nation.

Seven of the top-13-ranked heavyweights in the country, including McCovey, participated at nationals.

Competition starts Friday, April 3 in Va. Beach

Roger "Bronc" McCovey
Roger “Bronc” McCovey is making sure he does everything in his power to be a national champion.

Nearly every day since he won his second straight state heavyweight wrestling title March 7 in Bakers­field, the Del Norte High senior has been training for the National High School Coaches Association Sen­ior Nat­ionals that run today through Sunday in Vir­gin­ia Beach, Va.

This includes wrest­ling with teammates and even coaches during intense practices designed to get him in top shape. He also has been lifting weights religiously and running.

The 18-year-old senior is considered one of the best high school grapplers in the nation and earlier this year was named the top heavyweight in the nation by Connect Wrestling, a national Web site.

McCovey left for Virginia on Wednesday. Seven of the top 13 ranked wrestlers in the country in the heavyweight division are expected to compete.
