The Moab Junior Devils youth wrestling team traveled to Monticello for a mini junior high-level tournament on Jan. 16. Teams from Monticello, Moab, Blanding, Whitehorse and Monument Valley attended, but no team scores were kept, said Moab Junior Devils coach Kelly Sheets.

Sheets said the Moab wrestlers individual results were as follows: Joe Sanders, in his first-ever wrestling experience, went 0-2, Caison Ault went 1-2, Carson Whitney went 0-2, Dylan Harrison went 1-1, Tigis Glencoe went 1-2, Carson Sheets went 2-0, Dane Glencoe went 0-2, Kayden Robertson went 4-0, Maison Moyle went 2-1, Taison Wilson, also in his first-ever wrestling experience, went 0-2, Greg Stubblefield went 4-0 and Trea Meyer went 2-1. 

“For being a first-year start-up team, our boys did really well and represented their hometown well,” Sheets said.

Independent of the team, 12-year-old sixth-grader Carson Sheets of Moab traveled to compete in the Christy’s Clash in Syracuse, Utah, a tournament to raise money for breast cancer research. Sheets competed in two age and weight divisions at the event – sixth- and seventh-grade, wrestling at 79 to 86 pounds, and eighth- and ninth-grade, wrestling at 86 to 92 pounds. He finished second in both divisions, going 2-1 in the younger division and 3-1 in the older division.

Coming up for the Moab Junior Devils is a scheduled home dual meet against Monticello immediately following the Grand County High School meet against Dove Creek at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 29.
