The MSL tournament was ours. This previous tournament at Fairfield Union was a huge let down for the entire team. Most of the team was off to a great start. By the end of the second round, we were 1 point away from 2, and 7 points away from first. That was only one pin and a win of any sort and we were in first. But, as some of the Braves approached the finals, we encountered a little bit of trouble. While all the other teams were against easy opponents getting easy pins, we were against some of the hardest kids at the tournament. We ended up not evening placing out of 8 local teams.
Here is how the team did:
-80 (Logan L.) Injured/ No matches
-116 (Jake S.) Lost in the finals to Bloom Carroll by points/ Pinned everyone else. Good Job Jake!
-122 (Trey H.) Won all of his matches and got first, getting a first period pin in the finals against Hamilton Township. Way to go Trey!
-128 (Timothy M.) (Cover image) Pinned his way to the finals, then got pinned even though there was some controversy about it. Congratulations on 2nd Tim!
-134(S) (Bradyn A.) Lost both of his matches and was eliminated
-134(E) (Jake W.) Injured/ No matches
-142(Andrew W.) Won one and lost one, although his loss was also controversial
-150(S) (Ethan S.) Ethan won 2 and lost in the finals. Congratulations on 2nd!
-150(E) (R.J. W.) Lost both of his matches and was eliminated
-160(Andrew U.) Won all of his matches and lost in the finals to Bloom Carroll and got 2nd place. Nice work Andrew!
-172(Hayden B.) Absent
-205 (Nick S.) Won 3 matches and lost one, and also suffered a fractured hand. Congratulations anyway Nick!
I recommend everyone who isn’t wrestling this year or has never wrestled should come to open mats this November. Wrestling is a very fun all around sport, but practice isn’t easy. -Bradyn
