We’ve barely begun the winter season. But already, one ARHS team is pumped to be sharing tournament news. Here’s a release I was sent on behalf of Wrestling:

20131230_arhs_wrestling (500x333)

The Algonquin Regional high school wrestling team turned in a great team performance to finish just 1 point out of first place at the annual Marlborough Early Bird wrestling tournament on Sat, Dec 21. 

Eight of their fourteen wrestlers finished in the top six led by senior co-captains Alex Mazzola (182lbs) and Joe Cozzolino (138lbs) who both won their weight classes.

Seven of 14 Algonquin wrestlers won their first 2 matches of the day to qualify for the semi-final round. Five of those wrestlers won their semifinal matches (4 by pin) to earn the opportunity to wrestle for a championship title! Sophomore Austin Roach (132lbs) won his weight class while Juniors Nate Morrell and David Wrin finished the day in 2nd place.

Also placing for the T-Hawks were Freshman Drew Cozzolino (106lbs)- 3rd place, Senior Matt Hanlon (195lbs)- 4th place and Freshman Joe Vencile (285lbs)- 6th place.

Algonquin (3-1 dual meets) is set to host defending Mid-Wach Champion Nashoba on Thu, Jan 2 at 6:30pm in a Mid-Wach dual meet match up. The winner of this match becomes the instant favorite to win the 2013-2014 league title!
