With only one home meet, Suffield’s wrestling team has been on the road for the majority of the winter. Their home meet drew a large crowd of parents, teachers, and students as the Suffield Tigers faced off against Avon Old Farms. Unable to secure a win as a team, special highlights included Kechaun Bennett ’21, Luis Perez ’20, and Peterson Monexant ’20 all taking down their opponents with impressive technique.
Coaches Mr. Banks, Mr. Nulan, and Mr. Yotka will lead the team of 19 into Western New England Championships with a record of 5-8. The team captured second place at their first meet, the Skiff Mountain Scuffle at Marvelwood. Many wrestlers are looking to place well in Western New England’s and advance to New England Championships. After the season concludes, three wrestlers will complete their wrestling careers at Suffield. Jack Ballato ’19, Luca Pirondini ’19, and Jesse Polansky ’19 will be graduating and leaving the younger Tigers to dominate the wrestling mat, one take-down at a time.
