ST. GEORGE – As far as matches go, it was as close as it could get – until we got to the big boys.

snow-canyon-logopine-view-logoPine View and Snow Canyon squared off in Region 9’s first dual meet of the season and the match was tied at 30-30 until late in the meet. The Warriors came away with the team victory by just having a wrestler at the 195, 220 and 285-pound weights as Pine View had no athletes in those divisions.
