Raptor wrestlers place at nationals
|Tyler Procarione gears up for up for his next match.|
In early February 12 members of the Carbon Raptors wrestling team traveled to Richfield to compete in the U.S. Folk Style National Wrestling Tournament. More than 900 wrestlers from several states competed in the meet.
The Raptors are made up of over 30 wrestlers who practice three nights a week. The program is a success because not only the boys are committed to it, but also their families.
Those who placed at the meet were Caleb Williams, who took first, Bryce Jackman and Kyler Key who both took second and Johnny O'Hearon placed third. Two members of the team, Ashton Sicilia and Kendon Huff took home sportsmanship awards.
