Wrestler Kaleb Ashworth

Kaleb Ashworth is a senior at Spanish Fork High School. He maintains a 4.0 grade point average. He is also the student body president. On top of all of this, he wrestles for the Dons and has been wrestling his whole life. Kaleb has wrestled varsity since he was a freshman. In his four years wrestling in high school, he has earned four region titles! This is very hard to accomplish four years in a row.
His senior year has been by far his best, in which he has only lost three matches. At the Southern Division Wrestling Meet on February 7, 2010 he earned first place in the 145 weight category. Another tournament this wrestling season in which Kaleb did exceptional well was the Best of the West Tournament at Tooele High School. He beat Zach Coffman of Tooele 8-2 in the finals to earn him another first place win. In the Rocky Mountain Rumble on January 19, 2010, Kaleb took second to Justin Penn from Delta. That is just one of his few loses this year.

At the new high school Maple Mountain, Region 8 Wrestling was held. Kaleb earned his fourth region title beating Zack Blackham of Uintah by technical victory 17-2. In this tournament, Kaleb was named Region 8 most outstanding wrestler in the upper weight divisions. He has made quick work at the 4A State Finals advancing to the Semifinals where he will wrestle Zack Coffman of Tooele again. If he wins this match he will advance to the Finals. Kaleb has had a great season so far and we wish him the best of luck these next few days.
