A total of seven wrestlers from the Moab Junior Devils team attended the Provo Holiday Classic Wrestling Against Cancer Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 14.

Competing in the first-grade division at 45 pounds was Breckin Shepherd, who went 2-1 and took home a third-place medal.

In the fourth- through sixth-grade division, at 70 pounds, Carson Whitney took third place in a 16-man double-elimination bracket. At 85 pounds, Dane Glencoe placed second in a four-man round-robin, winning two and losing one. Also, at 105 pounds, Maison Moyle took third in his 16-man double-elimination bracket.

In the seventh- through ninth-grade division, at 85 pounds, Tygis Glencoe took third in a three-man round robin, coming up just short in two tough matches, according to coach Kelly Sheets. Also, at 90 pounds, Corbin Arbon went 1-2 in a tough 16-man double-elimination bracket. Finally, at 125 pounds, Gregory Stubblefield competed in a two-man best-of-three match, winning one and losing two and earning a second-place medal.

According to coach Sheets, busy holiday schedules and seasonal illness kept the rest of the Moab Junior Devil wrestlers from attending the Provo tournament. 

“I am very proud of these boys and I can see a lot of improvement as a result of their hard work in practice,” Sheets said. He also thanked assistant coaches Jeff Arbon and Kyle Meyer for their help.
