Altamont squeezes past North Summit for 2A state wrestling title

David Anderson | The Richfield Reaper Millard’s Calun Whitaker and North Sevier’s Tanner Sorenson compete for the 220-pound state title at the Class 2A state meet Saturday in Richfield.

Altamont has just enough in the end to capture the Class 2A state wrestling team title Saturday.

The Longhorns scored 244 points to 240 for North Summit at the Sevier Valley Center.

North Summit’s Eduardo Rodriguez pinned Altamont’s Mac Thacker for the 285-pound state title in the last match of the meet, but Altamont’s lead was just big enough. The Longhorns won the Class 1A team title last year.

The Longhorns had two wrestlers crowned state champions. McKay Foy pinned North Summit’s Tyler Scheurn in the 145 title match, while Danny Thompson pinned teammate Heston Murdock in the 152 title bout.
