Phoenix Varsity Wrestlers Take to the Mat

15 December 2016

The Phoenix Varsity Wrestlers took the mat for the first time this season in a five dual meet weekend in Massachusetts.  On Friday night, Hyde notched their first victory of the season against Governor’s Academy and was defeated by a solid Roxbury Latin School squad.

On Saturday, Hyde travelled to Milton Academy and earned a victory over Class A League opponent Tilton School and suffered a lopsided loss to the talented host Mustangs of Milton.  Hyde ended the regulation bout with Lawrence Academy tied at 36, but lost on tiebreak criteria “H”.  Lawrence earned the victory on the strength of scoring first more often than the Phoenix in the individual contests.

Match Scores:

Hyde 42, Governor’s Academy 33
Hyde 36, Roxbury Latin School 48
Hyde 48, Tilton School 12
Hyde 36, Lawrence Academy 37 on tiebreak criteria
Hyde 18, Milton Academy 66

Standouts on the weekend included Senior Captains Brett Gerry and Jake Durkin compiling a 10 – 0 record between them while senior Andre Allen went 5-1 on the weekend.  Other notables include sophomore 132 pounder Connor Foye, 113 pounder Junior Jin, and senior 160 Dylan Budd who all notched career first varsity victories!

Hyde returns to action after the winter break in a home meet with Tilton School and Landmark School on 9 January 2016.

Wish us luck!
