On Nov. 16, six wrestlers from the team traveled to Salina, to wrestle in a tournament for wrestlers in junior high, middle school, and little league.
In the fifth- through sixth-grade division, Moab’s Caison Ault took second place in the 68-pound weight class. Junior Devil teammate Carson Whitney took first place wrestling at 69.5 pounds, Dylan Harrison took fourth at 72 pounds, Carson Sheets took first place at 84 pounds and Isiah Williams took first place at 150 pounds.
Also, in the seventh- and eighth-grade division, Trea Meyer of Moab placed second in the 150-pound category.
“This is a very exciting time for our junior high-age wrestlers, as this is the first team available for kids of that age,” said Sheets, who noted that the team currently has 16 members registered. “This gives our youth a program more suited for their age group, providing a much-needed plug in the gap from Little Devil wrestling to high school wrestling.”
Sheets thanked the parents and wrestlers for their support in getting the new team off to a good start.
