Three wrestlers vying for history as 4-time state champions in 2013
The three wrestlers capturing the elusive fourth medal isn’t a forgone conclusion by any means. Last year, Payson’s Mitch Brown was upended by Wasatch’s Morgan Sweat in the final match during his quest for No. 4.
“I don’t feel as much pressure as I did when I was younger,” Prince said. “I feel more relaxed now.”
The heaviness of actually earning the fourth medal is undoubtedly present for the three seniors. But, as Foy points out, it’s all an approach and mentality. Although the significance is obviously greater, it’s just like the first three years.
“I just got to keep wrestling hard,” he said.
And if they do? Fans from Maple Mountain, Hurricane and Altamont will need to bring the brooms for the clean sweep.
