SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – The excitement was high January 21 as nine high school and junior high wrestlers from Springfield hit the mats at a tournament in Bristol, Vermont.
Cardio and drills must be working, because the work put out by these kids was just excellent.
Jayson Webster battled his way through four opponents to bring home the gold; Tim Bapp-Cederholm and Brandon Bennett also earned first place in their brackets. Mo Stettner wrangled her way to second place, and Matt Prosser brought home a silver medal also. Third place winners were Peter Berlenbach, Gillian Guy, and Skyler Congdon; newcomer Troy Meier wrestled hard and kept his spirits and chin up through some tough matches.
Everyone worked hard, faced big challenges, and earned some respect on the mats. Congratulations, Springfield Junior high and high school wrestlers!
