Congratulations to our Mighty Lions Wrestling Team. Payson took second place at the Juab Winter Classic. In the tournament of 24 schools, we only lost to Millard High School.

These last two weeks have been two intense weeks of wrestling competitions for our wrestlers. Our varsity wrestlers have had 21 matches in the last 2 weeks, that’s a lot of matches. At the Juab Tournament we had 6 undefeated wrestlers: Mitch Brown, Jed Mellen, Cole Ford, Zac Loveless, Kaelen Loveless and Brady Loveless.

The Wrestling Team has also an award called Wrestler Of The Week. “Each week as coaches we choose a Wrestler Of The Week. These Wrestlers not only compete well on the mat, but also work very hard in practice and represent our team well as Wrestlers and individuals,” said Coach Loveless. The Wrestlers Of The Week so far have been Jed Mellen, Cole Ford, Austin Riding and Kaelen Loveless. “I like having good kids to practice with and having so much competition in our own Team. That makes us a lot better as a team,” said Jed Mellen. “The Millard Iron Man Tournament is my favorite so far. It was really hard with all the teams, but I was undefeated, he added” We hope they can keep up with their winning streak from the past and wish them good luck.
