Championship Wrestling is a Spanish Fork Junior High tradition.  It is exciting for students all over the school who plan on participating.

The head coach, John Webb was the former head coach at Weber State, the head assistant coach at BYU, and an assistant coach at Oklahoma State. The assistant coach Dave Clark has been a former coach at Cedar High School and an assistant coach at Spanish Fork High School.  These coaches are the reason that we are able to have a wrestling team in the first place.

Our coaches have a lot of experience.  The first practice was November 5.  A parent meeting was held at 6:30 PM on November 7th.  The first match was on the 19th of November.  There will be one dual match per week for six weeks and a final District Championship Tournament. In addition there are Saturday tournaments for those who are interested.

With the coaches and the interest for wrestling in our school, we will have a great wrestling team.   This is going to be a fun year for championship wrestling.
