Utah schools ranging 1-5A and wrestlers from Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado attended a large wrestling tournament at Viewmont High School in Farmington over the weekend.
There were 64 wrestlers and 32 matches in each weight class. Emery’s 160-pound wrestler Ashton Dieli captured third place in the varsity rounds and 126-pound McKay Meccariello was fifth in the junior varsity portion of the tourney.
“All of the wrestlers wrestled very well, and they were not beat as they worked very hard,” said coach Kirk Christiansen.
