JV Wrestling competed in a tri-meet and dual meet in the 2013. The tri-meet was the battle of Route 169. The Wolfpack competed against Pomfret School and Rectory School. For many of the wrestlers it was the first time competing in their wrestling career. Each wrestler fought extremely hard but only a couple were able to come out victorious. Isabella Castello ’15 competed in her first ever wrestling match against a young lady from the Pomfret School. Izzi came out on top pinning her opponent in the second round. It was an all-around great effort from the team and was a great learning experience for many of the wrestlers.
The Wolfpack’s second competition before winter break was a dual meet against sister school Hyde Bath. The Wolfpack came ready to compete but a more experienced Hyde Bath team was hard to take down. The Wolfpack lost 27-39 but the score does not reflect the strong effort put forth by all wrestlers. A handful of wrestlers won by pinning their opponents within the first two rounds of their matches, those being – Mike Yao ’15, Ethan Goldberg (co-captain) ’15, Mac McCubbin (co-captain) ’14, McCallum Land ’15. Another member of the team, Tony Mao ’16, added points to the team score but lost at the end of three periods 5-8.
