This past weekend made for a great season kick-off for the DHS Wrestling Team.
All wrestlers hit the mats with focus and drive. With lots of new team members this year the mats were full of Dryden Eagles throughout the entire day long event. With this seasons large turn out we were able to have numerous competitors in various weight categories which in turn gave us the ability to come out with great results.
The team tally on the weekend was 5 gold medals, earned by Ben Arsenault, Jessyca Gauthier, Devon Lozej, Alex Evans and Jhan Cjakowski 3 silver earned by Nick Bergeron, Josh Shine, Andy Brown, and 3 bronze by Mell Hall, Heather Madussi and Shayna Desaulniers.
The teams first year wrestlers performed very well with many finishing just out of the medals. All wrestlers put forth excellent effort and did exceptionally well. The first tournament always helps to understand where to improve for the rest of the season and that is exactly what the team got out of it. We are looking to improve for our up-coming tournament this Wednesday and have hit the mats hard already to get ourselves to where we want to be.
