Teaching the basics on the mat
Viking Wrestlers head coach Chuck Abeyta works with two young wrestlers during a practice last month. Abeyta has been working with youth in East Carbon and Sunnyside for over 30 years helping them to pick up the basics at a young age and develop into better wrestlers over time.
Along with fellow coaches Cory Burdick and Gabe Hunt, Abeyta and the Viking Wrestlers have been practicing hard the past few weeks in anticipation for a state tournament to be held in Panguitch this weekend. A number of wrestlers on the team will make the trip to compete against some wrestlers from around the state.
