On May 30 through June 1, some Carbon and Emery athletes traveled to Wasatch High School to learn from coaches and former wrestlers with excellent credentials. The day started out with strength and conditioning, followed by the morning session, lunch break and afternoon session.

The athletes from Carbon and Emery were Brookleigh Unsworth, Dazi Thatcher, Madison Arroyo, Lily Clark, Emma Parker, Gaby Bencomo, Addy Lee, Dorothy Clark and Farrah Parker. Many of the athletes wrestled in high school last year and will continue to do so. With the others excited to start wrestling competitively in high school competition.

The Clinicians of the event started with Jake Short, who is the GVSU Women’s Head Coach, 3x NCAA qualifier and 4x Minnesota State Champion. Next was Hailey Corona, Wasatch High School Wrestling Coach, Cadet World Team member, 5x Fargo All-American, 2x Folkstyle National Champion and Pan American Champion and Marlynne Deede, 2x College National Champion, Olympic Trials Qualifier, 4x College All-American and 2022 US Open Runner-Up.

Madison Arroyo was awarded “Wrestler of the Camp”, herself and her teammates will continue to impress this upcoming year for Lady Dinos wrestling in its second year of the program.
