Brothers of Steel at the Marsh Valley Tournament

The middle and high school wrestling seasons may be officially over, but the Brothers of Steel Malad wrestlers are still hitting the mats as they travel to various tournaments around the area.  They have had a full schedule for the last several weeks and with it a full list of accomplishments and success.

The Idaway wrestling season kicked off with the Marsh Valley tournament held in January.  Malad had 27 youth wrestlers compete at the tournament, an exciting turnout for the program.  Even more exciting was that all 27 earned and brought home medals after the weekend.

Supporting the youth program as time allows, the HS Dragon wrestling coaches and wrestlers showed up to Marsh Valley to help coach and support the young wrestlers. “The youth in our program really look up to the high schoolers and it means a lot to them to have the older kids sit in their corner and coach them.”

Speaking of that first tournament, Coach Josh Davis shared, “Our wrestling family showed up BIG this weekend! We had the most wrestlers out of all the teams that competed at the IDAWAY tournament in Marsh Valley. 27 Brothers (and Sisters) of Steel represented our home town well. We also had a big group of our high school team show up to support the up and coming wrestlers of Malad – way to be awesome examples!!”
