Pioneer Wrestlers Place First at Stansbury Stampede
The Lehi Wrestling Team had a decisive victory at the Stansbury Stampede last weekend besting 23 other wrestling teams from the area with five champions in their weight brackets.
The Pioneers had six wrestlers make the cross bracket and five of those ended up in the finals. All five won their matches with four pins and a major decision. Although other schools had more wrestlers make the cross bracket, Lehi’s boys were able to finish with the wins, pushing the team into the first place finish.
Those who finished the tournament with first place wins were Dallin Corrington, Jesus Escobar, Shane Joe, Will Sampson, and Weston Anderton. Grayden Hadfield placed fourth.
Coach Dan Rice was pleased with the team’s performance. “They performed really well this weekend. They stayed focused and outperformed their opponents.”
