Jake Gardner puts pressure on his ALA opponent.

Cort Jensen puts a move on his opponent.
Last week the Emery High wrestling team had matches with American Leadership Academy and Grand High and came away with huge wins. The final scores were Emery 66-0 over ALA and 58-19 over Grand. Just about every Emery wrestler that won did so by a pin against the two schools.
The win over Grand was especially satisfying because just a week ago the two schools met at the Carbon duels and Emery won by a score of 46-36. The Spartans evidently are getting a little better with practice.
Spencer Fehlberg leads the Spartans this season with a record of 9-0 and Clay Collard with a record of 11-2 is right behind. Caleb Jones and Zac Walls have records of 10-3.
Emery will host Carbon this week and the times have been switched. The JV will now wrestle at 5:15 p.m. and the varsity will go at 5:45 p.m.
Time changes are due to the choir concert which will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Emery High. The school encourages everyone to support the wrestlers and the choir concert.
Wrestling and choir concert on Dec. 17.
