2015-16 Tooele County Wrestling

The high school wrestling season came to a close last weekend with nine grapplers from Tooele County placing at the Class 3A state tournament, while Tooele tied for fifth as a team.

Tooele junior Brady Knight was the state champion at 113 pounds, holding off Pine View’s Randal Donn in a 10-7 decision in the finals. Knight’s teammate, Jackson Gavin, finished second at 182 pounds, and the Buffs’ Trevor Gleed was third at 126.  David Carreau finished fifth at 152 and Jacob Peterson was fifth at 285.

Stansbury, which finished ninth at state, had four wrestlers place. Dylian Moore and Michael Wilson finished fourth at 106 and 120, respectively, while 106-pounder Anthony Herrera and 145-pounder Dawson Stewart each finished fifth.

Grantsville showed a lot of improvement this season, though it didn’t show in their team score at state. Junior heavyweight Bronco Cloward overcame a ton of adversity to win a region title and ultimately advanced to the third round of the consolation bracket at the state tournament.
