History was made during the 2016-17 high school wrestling season in Tooele County.
Stansbury junior Logan Gustafson became the first Stallion wrestler to capture a state championship when he defeated Morgan’s Antonio Nava in the 138-pound Class 3A title match, capping a successful season.
Stansbury finished fifth at the state tournament, and had five state placers. Dylian Moore (113 pounds) and Josh Larsen (120) each finished second in their weight class, while Anthony Herrera (132) was third and Dawson Stewart (152) was fourth.
Moore, Larsen and Gustafson were just the second, third and fourth Stansbury wrestlers to advance to the finals in school history.
Tooele’s Brady Knight followed up his own state championship with a third-place finish at 120 pounds to wrap up his impressive high school career after losing in the semifinals to eventual state champion Gentry Warner of Juab. Teammate Angel Garcia made an impressive run through the consolation bracket to finish fifth at 182 pounds after losing in the opening round of the state tournament.
The Buffaloes finished 14th in the team standings in coach Cody Valdez’s first year in charge.
Grantsville senior Bronco Cloward finished fifth at the state tournament at 285 pounds as the Cowboys finished 19th in Class 3A.
