Skyridge wrestlers compete in state duals



The Skyridge wrestling team members gained additional experience in the 6A Dual State Championships held last weekend (Feb. 19-20) at Lehi High School.

Coach Lyle Mangum reported that a substantial portion of his team was no longer available to compete since preparation for spring football practice began last week. The remaining Falcons finished fifth in Pool A and were placed in the Bronze bracket for the final rounds.

In pool play, Skyridge bested Westlake 39-30 and lost to Mountain Ridge, Farmington, Fremont and Lehi. In the bracket they defeated Pleasant Grove JV 38-27 but lost to Renegade and didn’t wrestle the Thunder again since they had competed earlier. Based on that, the Falcons finished a presumptive third.
