Wasatch Wrestling started off last week with the All-Star Dual at Utah Valley University. Wrestlers from Wasatch, Zack Kohler, Sammy Heywood, Stockton O’Brien, and DJ Cohen represented the Wasps in the prestigious wrestling match with each wining their match.

“The All-Star Dual is fun,” said DJ Cohen. “I like it because you get to be with a lot of different guys from different teams. It is a fun match to wrestle in because it is a pretty big deal.”

The dual features the best wrestlers in the state and, for spectators, it is a chance to have a pre-state championship match.

“It’s good for the guys to wrestle in the All-Star match,” said Wasatch’s Wrestling Coach Wade Discher. “Our guys who wrestled in the dual are tough and have come a long way in their wrestling careers. They did a good job representing themselves, our team, and our school.”

After the All-Star Dual the Wasps had a full week of wrestling beginning with a win over North Summit.

“North Summit is a tought team and always has great wrestlers,” said Discher. “We battled it out pretty good and came away from the match with a lot of things to work on. North Summit is definitely one of the best 2A schools.”

Wasatch also faced Timpanogos and beat the Timberwolves 61 to 7. To finish out the week the Wasps competed in the High Country Classic, which featured 8 teams from Utah. Wasatch won the tournament with 291.5 points. Payson High School took 2nd with 276.0 points.
