The finals were a show, with fireworks and spotlights flaring to create a spectacular setting for the finals. In a parade of champions around the floor, three Manti wrestlers waved to the crowd and showed their honors as the best in the state. Aaron Bean and Mickey Fehlberg both earned sixth place honors and helped Manti finish 8th in the team standings. In his final match, Jesse met Jeremy Hunt of Enterprise. Jesse lost to Jeremy in the Snow College Tournament earlier. This meeting was to settle who was the best wrestler. Jesse scored first with a takedown late in the first round. Jeremy won the coin toss, but then deferred his choice to Jesse. This was a costly mistake on Hunt's part as Jesse chose the neutral position and quickly scored his second takedown of the match and soon finished his fourth pin of the tournament and a repeat state title. Jesse won the 160 lb. weight just a year ago. This one was even better than last year; this was a payback in a sweet way, commented Jesse after the match. Many loyal fans have followed the team all year, coached by Mark Olson and Tom Adams. "We have had some exciting matches and to end it all like this is just fantastic! stated Coach Olson.
