Wolfpack VW Takes on Marianapolis, 45-12

Hyde-Woodstock: 45
Marianapolis Prep: 12

The Hyde School at Woodstock held another home match this Wednesday the 19th against Marianapolis Prep.  Marianapolis and Hyde have had a back and forth rivalry for years, and this year it was the Wolf Pack’s turn to dominate in this annual match up.  David Smith ’14 opened up the match with a stunning pin, even though he had bumped up to the 112lb weight class.  He fought off his back for the first two minutes of the match, and turned on the intensity in the middle of the second period to turn his opponent and earn a pin.  Marcos Mercado ’13 also wrestled up a weight class and pinned one of the Marianapolis captains in the last second of the first period.  Kevin Smith ’12 wrestled his opponent for all six minutes and earned a decision victory with a 10-4 score.  We then had successive pins from the 145lb. weight class all the way through the 189lb. weight class by Kenrick Vincent ’12, Mac McGuire ’11, James Ziede ’12, Addison Wheat ’11, and Zack Guidice ’12. Overall, it was a fantastic victory and just what the team needed as we head into our first weekend tournament at the Brunswick School.  Wish the wrestlers luck, and hopefully we will return late Saturday night with new medals to flaunt around campus.
