Tooele’s Savannah Malmgren (145) earned third, Lindsey Hansen (105) fifth, Kirra Johnson (170) seventh and Jaycee Ware (115) and Kaleolani Ned (190) eighth. Stansbury’s Abigail Acosta (155) placed eighth and Elisia Trujillo (245) earned seventh. Overall Tooele girls placed 13th at the Rumble and Stansbury was 21st out of 34 teams.
Tooele Girls Coach Joel Spendlove was proud of how his girls finished at the Rumble. “Every girl wrestled tough this weekend. All of the girls were able to win meaningful matches. They did a great job bouncing back and continuing to battle after tough matches. Savannah rebounded well from some challenging matches last week and really got some confidence back with her third place finish. Lindsey gets tougher and tougher the more mat time she gets.”
“As we prepare for divisionals and state, we are still working on preparing our young team to get over mental hurdles and how to overcome wrestling obstacles, but I’m very proud of where we are heading into the last few weeks of the regular season.”
