Roger “Bronc” McCovey was not concerned when he gave up a takedown to Angel Posadas of Foothill High early in the state heavyweight title match Saturday night.

Del Norte High’s defending state champion, who had not surrendered a takedown his entire junior year and in every match up to this point as a senior, was suddenly behind, 2-0, in his opponent’s hometown of Bakersfield.

The even-tempered 18-year-old said he knew he just had to “keep doing what I’ve been doing all year,” not get flustered and just keep wrestling.

“That kid was a lot quicker than I thought he was going to be,” McCovey said. “I just kept pushing the action. I felt he would get tired. I felt I was in better shape than him.”

McCovey took the lead in the second period with a takedown. Up 6-3, Bronc pinned an exhausted Posadas in the third period at the 5:05 mark to earn a second straight state crown and cap a second consecutive undefeated prep season.
