Several wrestlers from the Moab Junior Devils team took part in the “Mat Cat” tournament in Fruita, Colo., on Saturday, Jan. 11.

Moab’s Carson Sheets, 12, placed first in the 85-pound category in both the 12 and under and 14 and under age categories. Teammate Tygis Glencoe, also wrestling at 85 pounds, placed second in the 14 and under age category.

In the 150-pound category for 12 and under, Trea Meyer of Moab placed second. Also taking second place for Moab were Caison Ault, who wrestled at 70 pounds for age 10 and under, and Dylan Harrison at 70 pounds for age 12 and under.

In addition, Dane Glencoe placed third in the 85-pound category for age 12 and under. He earned the workhorse award for his “never say die” performance, according to Junior Devil coach Kelly Sheets. In addition, Carson Whitney took fourth place in the 70-pound category for age 12 and under.
