Wolfpack Varsity, JV Wrestling at 2015 New England Tournament

2015 New England Tournament

On Friday and Saturday, the Hyde Wolfpack sent two of its own to Tabor Academy to compete in the 2015 NE Prep Championship.  Chris Kerdavid ’16 and Markus Rhyner ’16 both placed fourth in the previous Class A League Championship which earned them a spot in this elite tournament.  On the first day, Chris Kerdavid lost his first match, but rallied back with a great pin in the consolation round.  He needed one more win to advance to Friday, but unfortunately lost in the wrestle backs.  Markus Rhyner had a small bracket so he had a bye in the first round and then lost in the second against the man that would take 2nd overall.  He was advanced to the second day due to two more byes which automatically put him in the consolation quarters.  We got up early and drove back out to Marion, MA to see how far he could make it.  Unfortunately, he would get pinned in his match on Saturday, thus concluding the season.  Looking ahead, these two will have to help anchor the team next year seeing as we are losing a substantial number of seniors.  A special thanks goes out to our seniors Dawit Kiflemariam, Dennis Cavalli, Koray Altay, Charlie Levine, Jack Cardew, Doug Main and Jesse McKiernan for the hard work and effort they brought to the season.  They will all leave a void behind that the next batch of wrestlers will need to fill.  Thanks to all our fans and followers for their support this season.

2015 JV New England Tournament

On the Sunday following the NE Championships, a group of eager JV wrestlers traveled to Tabor Academy to compete in the annual JV New England Championships.  This tournament is a great chance for newer varsity and even newer JV guys to test their mettle.  We also tend to bring a large number and come home with some hardware.  This season was no different and the Wolfpack earned some medals on the day.  Devon Churchill ‘16, Doug Main ‘15, Charlie Levine ‘15, and Michael Spencer ’15 all worked hard and battled to earn silver medals in their respective weight divisions.  Ethan Goldberg ’15 also medaled with a bronze.  It’s always great to see our wrestlers at this tournament because they truly embody hard work, grit and tenacity.  They are also gentlemen on the mat.  I look forward to some of these guys taking varsity roles in the coming year.

Thanks for a great season,
