Koleton Hardy

Koleton Hardy comes from a prominent wrestling family in Utah, with enough kin on the mat to make up his own wrestling team.  But Koleton is a formidable wrestler in his own right.  He is a very skilled technician who, when the chips are down, also has the toughness to make it through the toughest matches.  He's a very smart wrestler who, if he knows that something will work, isn't afraid to tell his coach that he's going with something of his own design.  And it worked out for him his senior year, where he went a very impressive 53-0 (one of only two undefeated seniors in Utah that year) and won his second straight state title, pinning Tooele star Zach Coffman in less than a minute in the finals. Koleton pinned another star in the first round, Hurricane's Zach Prince (who also won a second state title last year), at the All-Star Dual. As a junior, he won that elusive state title, destroying Payson stud Kaelen Loveless 9-0 to get to the finals, where he beat Uintah's Damon Mele 4-2. He also pinned North Summit star Dixon Richins at the All-Star Dual. In April 2010, he was once again in the finals at the prestigious Reno World Championships and won the USA Wrestling Junior Western Regional Championships in freestyle.  As a sophomore, he dominated his opponents in the state tournament, until the finals, where he fell short against Mt. Crest's mat monster Raider Lofthouse in a 5-3 decision, after beating Lofthouse earlier in the season at the Richardson Memorial.  In April 2009, he won the prestigious Reno World Championships, one of only two Utah wrestlers to rise to that height that year.  As a freshman, he finished third in state, after losing a decision to Wyatt Ray of Roy (who went on to finish as the state runner-up).  In April 2008, he finished second at the Reno World Championships, placing ahead of South Summit's Jonsen Crandall and Payson's Brock Brown.  In June 2008, he was the folkstyle and Greco-Roman champion at the USA Wrestling Western Regional Championships and runner-up in freestyle.  He followed that with a fourth place finish in Greco-Roman at USA Wrestling Cadet Nationals in Fargo.  Koleton is a champion in all three styles of wrestling (folkstyle, freestyle and Greco-Roman), with a resume that anyone should respect.  He has represented Utah twice on the Utah All-Star Team against the Ohio All-Stars and dominated his opponent July 2007.
