On Friday, Jan. 31 and Saturday, Feb. 1, the Moab Junior Devils wrestling team traveled to Richfield to compete in the 1A/2A/3A Junior High state tournament. A total of four Junior Devils placed at state, with Trea Meyer taking second, Carson Sheets taking third, and Carson Whitney and Maison Moyle each placing sixth in their respective weight categories.

  “This was the team’s first year competing in state and for taking eight kids and placing four, I think we did very well,” said coach Kelly Sheets. He said the Moab team finished 26th out of 36 teams, scoring 27 team points with the four placers.

Other Junior Devils who competed are Caison Ault, who went 1-2, Dane Glencoe and Kayden Robertson, who were each 2-2, and Gregory Stubblefield, who was 0-2.

  Coach Sheets was assisted by Kyle Meyer, Aaron Striblen, and Dexter Sheets at the state tournament.

In addition, Carson Sheets traveled to the Youth Super State Tournament in Heber City on Feb. 7 and 8, along with his dad and coach Kelly Sheets. Carson wrestled in the 85-pound category in the fifth- and sixth-grade division, and ended up placing fourth overall among 22 of the top wrestlers from across the state. His fourth-place winning match went four overtime periods, according to the coach, who added that Carson finished the fall/winter season with a record of 40 wins and 17 losses.
