Juab’s boys and girls wrestling programs enjoyed a great opening day of their respective state tournaments at the Sevier Valley Center on Wednesday.

Juab’s boys advanced 15 wrestlers into the 3A semifinals as it opened up a sizable Day 1 lead in its bid for a sixth straight state championship

The Wasps racked up 140 points on Wednesday, well ahead of second place Morgan which totaled 101.5 points and advanced nine wrestlers into the semifinals.

While another Juab boys title is pretty much a forgone conclusion heading into Thursday’s final day of the state tournament, the inaugural title in the combined 3A/2A/1A tournament is wide open.

Juab enjoys a very slim lead after the opening day with 64 points, while Grantsville is right behind with 62 points. Rich, Enterprise, ALA and Union all within 12 points of the lead.

Thursday’s final day should be very exciting with the log jam at the top of the team standings.
