7th/8th Grade Dual Team Finishes 4th out of 32 Teams; 6 Individuals Make Podium

ZM 7th and 8th grade team were in action at the NYWA State tournament last Thursday and Friday in Rochester at the Civic Center. On Thursday, the team rolled through KMS, ANML, and United to win the pool and position us in the championship 4 team bracket for Friday.

Day 2 in the semifinals against Hastings came down to the last match in overtime with the winner advancing to the championship. Easily the most exciting match of the entire dual tournament, it did not end in our favor and Hastings won the dual. It was an interesting match, because all other matches were complete and the entire arena was focused on this one match, with our guy giving up a good 70 pounds. For 3rd/4th place we lost to Staples Motley.

The ZM team won the sportsmanship award for the tournament, voted on by the referees. This shows we do not only have talented wrestlers, but our wrestlers and coaches will represent ZM extremely well, win or lose.
