Springfield Wrestlers Sweep Mt Abe Tourney

Springfield Wrestlers Sweep Mt Abe Tourney

posted Tuesday, January 9, 2018

At a tournament in Bristol, Vermont this past weekend, Springfield wrestlers took home some serious hardware. Seniors John Stafford Jr, Matt Prosser, Matt LaChapelle, Bradley Bennett, and Lucas Saunders joined sophomore Brandon Bennett in the "gold club" at the top of their respective podiums, while senior Trent Lewis-Briere claimed a bronze medal.

Sophomore Skylar Wallace pinned one of his opponents, his team cheering him on enthusiastically for his first win. Freshman Skyler Congdon claimed a hard-won 4th place while senior Gillian Guy battled through four tough matches with her usual grit and determination.

Junior high wrestlers also worked hard, with Timmy Amsden hitting his first win at the Mt Abe tournament. Veteran Cole Wright fought through multiple opponents, and Bryan Stafford earned a 2nd place silver medal for his efforts.
