Kanab Little League Wrestling does well at Utah State Tournament
The success of the high school wrestling program led to a great turnout for our Kanab Little League Wrestling program. Our young boys worked hard this season, and at the end of March, 11 wrestlers from Kanab, ranging in ages from preschool to eighth grade, traveled to Fillmore to compete in the Utah State Wrestling Tournament. They represented our town proudly bringing home a couple of State Champions and many others making the podium.
Parker Swapp brought home the gold medal for preschool weight class 34-36 lbs. Miles Mata took first place for the kindergarten 52-55 lbs. bracket. Carrson Cluff and Dylan Stubbs brought home the silver for their brackets. Brennan Orton and Kanon Virostko finished in third place. Dreyden Stubbs came away with a fourth place medal. Degan Swapp, Kwinn Hunt, Monte Johnson and Kenston Brown fought hard, but came up just short of the podium.
We would like to thank their coaches Brandon Stubbs and Shay Hunt for all the time they put in working with these kids each season.
