Bath: Hyde Varsity Wrestling Week in Review

The Hyde Phoenix Varsity Wrestling team took to the mats Friday and Saturday in our first regular season competitions.  On Friday, Hyde travelled to Byfield, MA to face Governor’s Academy and Roxbury Latin.  The match with Governor’s was an evenly contested affair, though forfeits cost Hyde the victory in the end.  In the second match of the evening, Hyde fell to Roxbury Latin by a wide margin.

With a renewed spirit and toughness, Hyde travelled to Milton, MA on Saturday to face Milton Academy, Tilton School, and Lawrence Academy.  The Phoenix wrestled well on the day and showed considerable grit and determination. Once again, forfeits played a role in Hyde’s losses to Milton and Tilton.  In the final match of the day, Hyde faced off against Lawrence Academy, and earned our first dual meet win of the season!

Standouts from the weekend included junior Austin Wang (3-2), junior Lukas Fischer (2-3), and senior Chester Hill (4-1).  Congratulations also to sophomore 160 Omar Harris on his first varsity win!

On Wednesday the Phoenix host the Wolfpack of Hyde-CT in what is sure to be an exciting renewal of this awesome rivalry.  Next weekend, Hyde will compete in the Doug Parker Invitational in Enfield, CT.
