The Red Devils wrestling team attended the Desert Hills Invite Tournament in St. George on Dec. 7-8.

“Well, we took eight wrestlers. There are 14 total weights and we only had eight, but the eight we took did a good job,” Head Coach Dennis Wells stated. “Levi Merz is in the 200-pound class. He was one of our extra wrestlers, so he wrestled [as a courtesy] for Kanab at 220,” Wells added.

The Red Devils beat the Monument Valley Cougars 48-24 and the Dixie Flyers 39-36. Grand County tied the Page Sand Devils, an Arizona team, 36-36.

Carson Whitney, who is in the 113-pound class, is undefeated, a perfect 10-0 so far this season. Jarom Shumway, 220-pound weight class is 8-2. Chris Thompson, 145-pound class is 7-3.

The Red Devils wrestling team hosted San Juan High on Dec. 12 after The Times-Independent went to press.
