Carson Sheets, age 12, took first place in his bracket after pinning each opponent at the Palisades Little Dawgs pre-season opener on Saturday, Dec. 7. Sheets, a sixth-grader, wrestled in a six-man round robin bracket. The Moab Junior Devils had the option to help at the Moab Invitational at Grand County High School. The remaining junior devils stayed and worked at the tournament as table help, mat cleaners and bout sheet runners. “They all worked very hard,” said coach Kelly Sheets. “I hope that this new junior high team, by getting to experience a two-day high school tournament like this, will be a good start to a long tradition of wrestling in Moab.”
