Two Red Devil seniors, Jacob Francis and Edgar Gomez, both went undefeated 10-0 during the tournament. Francis, who competes at 138 pounds, is now 26-0 so far this season, while Gomez is 24-0, according to GCHS assistant coach Ron Dolphin.
In addition, senior Gage Lindquist, wrestling at 120 pounds, won nine of his 10 matches.
Dolphin said the Red Devils did well, in spite of automatically losing four matches to forfeit each time, as they lacked competitors in those weights.
“We had holes at 160, 170, 182, and 220 [pounds], handing 24 team points to each team we dueled,” Dolphin said.
Also for Grand, Robert Allred went 7-3, and Andrew Hugentobler and Seth Holyoak each managed four victories in their 10 matches.
The Grand team as a whole went 3-7 in its 10 matches, which were scored as follows, listed in order of competition: lost to Gunnison 27-54; lost to North Sevier 24-58, lost to San Juan 36-45; lost to North Summit 15-53; defeated Summit Academy 48-24; lost to Manti 15-54; lost to Millard 9-66; defeated Kanab 42-24; lost to Enterprise 38-42; and defeated Parowan 39-27.
The Red Devils next scheduled competition is the Gunnison Invitational tournament on Jan. 10 and 11.
