New season, new sports, and other than basketball the wrestling season is ready to start as best as possible. 

After a whole summer of open gyms, practices have officially started on Monday, 6th of November.

More than 38 boys and 34 girls are practicing at the moment, “It’s going to be competitive this year,” said Keagan Sheffield, wrestler for GHS.

After last year’s performance, where 3 girls took first place both at divisions and State, and one of the boys won divisions and took 3rd place at State, the wrestlers are full of hope.

When asked if he has any predictions for the season he said “Hopefully we’ll make it to divisions and then State”.

Waiting for the first meet of the season, Coach Mecham, head coach of the wrestling team, is preparing the wrestlers as best as possible.

He said “I’d love to see the girls win State for the third year in a row, and having the boys in top 5 would be great”.

About the Contributor
A new school year has came, either you are brand new to a high school or you might be returning for another year, or if your this specific student then you might have traveled the world to be able to come to America to try high school in the American view.  Massimo Ciashetti is a foreign exchange student that is from Italy. He has come to Grantsville High School all the way to Utah to try highschool in the American way and see how things are different here than it is in Italy.  He decided that he wanted to try something new and come to school here in America. When he and his family went on a family vacation to America they went to Los Angeles and visited the Grand Canyon.  After they got back Massimo was interested in coming to school here in America to try something different and he thought that it would be an amazing experience.  Him and his family found an agency that is for foreign exchange students and they got all of his information and put him on the website for any family in America to choose him to come live with them and go to school in America.  A Family in Grantsville Utah chose him to come live with them and go to school in Grantsville. I asked him, “Why did you choose to come here? There is seriously nothing here. He said, “ I was put on a website for foreign exchange students and a family here picked me and that's why I came here” He can’t choose where he gets to go. He got picked by a family and then he traveled all the way from Rome, Italy to New York to Chicago then to Salt Lake to meet his new family in America. He still has been trying to get used to everything.
