Farmington Public Schools cancels wrestling for 2021 winter season

                               North Farmington High School.

Carson Roberts joined the North Farmington wrestling team as a junior by the recommendation of his football coaches. But in only one season with the Raiders on the mat, he learned to love the sport: the competitiveness, the focus not only on strength, but technique. 

Heading into 2021, he was excited for the opportunity to improve, to continue to be a leader and promoter of the sport he quickly fell in love with. 

For Roberts, the two other seniors on North Farmington’s team and all the wrestlers throughout Farmington Public Schools, they will not get the chance. 

Farmington Public Schools announced Wednesday in an email to athletes and parents that it will not be offering wrestling in the 2021 winter season at any of its middle schools or high schools due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
