The Carbon High Wrestling team competed in the "Best of the West" tournament at Tooele High School before heading to the Rocky Mountain Rumble to face opponents from all over the region. At the Tooele tournament on Jan. 9 and 10 the Dinos placed fifth overall as a team with several wrestlers standing out amongst the crowd.

Wyatt Martinez took second place in the 130 pound weight division. Cole Hunt took third in the 140 pound class. Jason Fredrickson took third at the 152 pound mark and Nico Velasquez placed fourth at 145 pounds.

T.J. Bettino took fifth in the 105 division with Cody Hunt also taking fifth at 119 pounds rounding out the placings, Marcus Rowley took sixth at 160 pounds.

In Junior Varsity action: Kamas Anderson, Anthony Montoya and Shane Castanon took second, with Stefin Larsen and Derrick Lujan placing fourth.

On Jan. 16 and 17, Carbon hit the Rocky Mountain rumble and although they were down several of their best wrestlers the Dinos wrestled with pride and were able to bring home one placing. Wyatt Martinez, a sophomore placed fifth out of 54 wrestlers. Martinez won his first two matches before losing his third and wrestling from the consolation bracket. He took down his next four opponents before losing his final match to Kade Moss, the tournament's number one seed, and placing fifth with a tournament record of 6-2.

The Dinos are looking to stay healthy and get their full squad back out on the mat as the region tournament nears.
