Lehi wrestling finishes second in state duals



The Lehi wrestling team finished second only to Davis in the 6A Dual State Championships held last weekend (Feb. 19-20) at Lehi High School.

The Pioneers finished first in Pool A to move forward to the Gold bracket. In pool meets, they defeated Farmington 45-31, Fremont 48-29, Mountain Ridge 39-39 by tiebreaker, Westlake 47-31 and Skyridge 51-28. In the bracket, Lehi edged Lone Peak 40-38 but fell to Davis 50-24.

The venue was changed to Lehi from its original location at the last minute due to complications at the other school. “It was a crazy two days, but our team performed well with Lincoln Rex and Ammon Cannon going undefeated,” said Pioneer Coach Dan Rice.

In the 126 weight class, Rex won all seven of his matches by fall and none of them went to the third round. His opponents and fall times were: Lincoln Catenzaro (Farmington) 3:18; Cody Sorensen (Skyridge) 3:49; Colby Tennant (Fremont) 3:46; Andrew Thomson (Davis) 2:40; Unknown (Unattached) 3:17; Joel Frazier (Lone Peak) 1:28; and Ryker Hunter (Westlake) 3:20.

Cannon competes in the 150 bracket. His results were: Hayes Smith (Farmington) Fall 1:09; Chandler Curtis (Skyridge ) Technical Fall 17-0; Taylor Graham (Fremont) Fall 5:20; Shepard Stephens (Davis) Fall 3:03; Preston Stevens (Mountain Ridge) Decision 6-1; and Ayden Robinson (Westlake) Technical Fall 15-0.
