Springfield Wrestlers Cap Off The Season In Vergennes

Springfield Wrestlers Cap Off The Season In Vergennes

posted Tuesday, April 11, 2017

What a way to cap the season for the third-sixth grade Springfield wrestlers! Trekking to Vergennes early Saturday morning, spirits were high and the determination levels were off the charts. Our boys did not disappoint! Excellent mat-work was displayed by every kid. Nate Smith faced down his arch-nemesis from Fair Haven; no wins for Nate, but his sportsmanship, team spirit, and determination are a real asset. Armando Stettner faced down three opponents and scored his first win by tech-fall! John Jasinski had a rough day on the mat but demonstrated outstanding support for his teammates all day, sharing his own experiences and encouraging them through defeat. Cole Wright put out excellent effort against strong opponents, nailing an early win.

Placing sixth in their brackets were Noah Markwell, Kyle Bauer, and Gabe McNeil; each of these boys continues to impress with their grit and skill, showing marked improvement from the start of the season. Hunter "The Punisher" Ferland battled fiercely for a very respectable 4th place win, facing extremely strong and challenging opponents. Dillan Lacasse, defending State Champ, came in 2nd place after a tremendous fight against his final opponent - it had a gladiatorial feel to it! Every one of these boys has a lot to be proud of. Well done!
