Brothers of Steel Compete at Intermountain Warrior Wrestling Tournament

The Intermountain Warrior Wrestling tournament was held in Farmington, Utah March 10 and 11.  The tournament hosts wrestlers and teams with high school, middle school, and girls divisions from several states in the western United States.  Malad had twelve Brothers of Steel wrestlers competing in 14 different brackets over the two day tournament. 

The tournament is especially exciting thanks to the unique awards each wrestler fights to earn. First place in the high school divisions take home a customized machete while champions of the middle school and younger brackets win an Intermountain Warrior tomahawk. Runner ups in all divisions win etched glass trophies. 

Day one of wrestling began with matches in the middle school, 9&10th grade and 12u brackets for Roper Higley, Oakley Maddox, Drake Morrison, and Bentley Maddox.  One of the highlights of the tournament is the Team Utah vs Team Idaho high school dual. This year also featured a new Team Idaho vs Team Utah middle school dual. Team Idaho was coached by Malad’s own Coach Devin Morrison and included Brothers of Steel wrestlers Morrison and Maddox.  As the final points were tallied up, Team Idaho came up short and ultimately fell to Team Utah, 39-45.

The opening day resulted with Oakley Maddox winning the title as Middle School 132lb Champion, Morrison - Middle School 140lb Champion, Morrison - 9&10th grade 140lb Champion, and Bentley Maddox taking 12u 90lb 2nd place.  Roper Higley and Oakley Maddox also wrestled some very tough matches in the 9&10th grade brackets.

Day 2 of the tournament featured matches from the 8u, 10u and girls brackets. The results for the Brothers of Steel were Kyler Blaisdell- 8u 55lb Champion, Rustin Montgomery- 10u 100lb Champion and Paysli Chournos Middle School Girls 6th place.  Also wrestling for Malad was Payson Price, DanniLynn Chournos, Braylee Price, Dezirae Haven and Cambree Howe, all putting up a tough fight on the mat and gaining more valuable experience.

At the conclusion of the tournament, Coach Morrison said, “It is exciting to see so many of our wrestlers competing in the off season. Our kids all wrestled tough and did a great job.”
