Wrestlers who took first place were: Peyton Hatathley, Austin Paris, Connor Swasey, Lane Peterson, Gannon James, Caden Swasey, Ean Ellis, Jason McKinney and Landon Moralez.

Cooper Swasey took second place.

Brayden Althoff, Aaron Stewart and Oscar Martinez placed third for the Little Devils.

“Our kids wrestled very well and we took home nine first-place trophies,” coach Guerrero said. “Our kids met some very tough competition and, as always, they never gave up.”

The Little Devils have one more wrestling tournament scheduled for this season. The team will travel to Blanding on Saturday, March 29 for that final competition.
