Junior Dragon Wrestling

Pre-K through 2nd grade Jr. Dragon wrestlers

The future of Dragon wrestling looks bright after a great 2024 season of Jr Dragon Wrestling.  For six weeks, the more than 75 hopeful wrestlers took to the mats to wrestle, learn, and compete under the direction of Coaches Jonny Blasidell and Josh Davis with the help from members of  the high school
wrestling team.

Each year the MHS wrestling team puts on the wrestlings practices as a fundraiser in tandem to the Little League Wrestling Tournaments in southeastern Idaho.  Even with their meager beginning, the Malad Jr Dragon wrestlers came out ready, hitting the mats with great drive and intensity.  Including youth Pre-K through 6th grade, wrestlers of all ages and experience participated in the program, all showing progress as the weeks moved on.

Nearly all of the young wrestlers took the opportunity to compete in the Little League tournaments, beginning the last week of February through March.   From Grace to Aberdeen to West Jefferson, Malad wrestling was well represented and made an impact wherever they competed.

Malad hosted a tournament on Wednesday, March 20, packing the mats and the stands for a fun filled night of wrestling.  The tournament was broken down into various pods based on the wrestler’s grade and weight.  The tournament also included girls wrestling brackets as they continue to build their growing girls team.  At the end of the night, the little wrestlers proudly toted their hard won medals and looking forward to the next chance they have to get on the mats. 

The coaching staff shared, “This year’s Junior Dragon wrestling program was a huge success! Through it the youth of Malad learned a love for the sport of wrestling. The program is a fundraiser for the high school team, but more importantly it helps young wrestlers develop the skills and knowledge they need to start wrestling and competing. We are grateful to the Malad wrestling parents and community that help make this program a great experience.”
