Green Grapplers Of Springfield Wrestling Team Continue To Impress

posted Monday, January 13, 2020

The green grapplers of the Springfield, Vermont Wrestling Team continue to impress; the JH team made a strong showing recently at a Mt Abraham tournament, battling several large New York teams as well as Vermont teams. Dillan Lacasse, John Jasinski, and Hunter Ferland each pulled out strong 2nd place spots on the podium, and Noah Markwell nailed a 3rd place medal. Also at Mt. Abe were members of the JV team, freshman Trenton Rumrill placing 3rd and first-year wrestler Logan Webster secured 4th place in his bracket. Both wrestlers put out super efforts and "left it all on the mat," according to team manager Angela Ferland.

Traveling south to Bennington, the varsity team brought their A-game to Mt. Anthony. Bryan Stafford, Cole Wright, and Tim Amsden showed great improvement, impressing head coach Don Beebe with their progress. Skylar Wallace and David Rigney each battled their way to 4th place, and senior Brandon Bennett led the day with a hard-won first-place medal.

The team next heads to Essex, VT on Jan 17th, 18th & 19th, with the HS team wrestling on Friday and Saturday and the JH grapplers hitting the mats on Sunday.
