Veteran Hunter Ferland and newcomer Izic Putnam each landed second place medals; wins were also claimed by Dillan Lacasse, Devin Snide-Tufts, Brock Lovell, and Cole Wright. Logan Roundy battled hard against tough opponents to show his increasing skill; Armando Stettner also worked his moves and never gave up. First-year wrestler Connor Azarigian continued his pattern of refusing to be pinned by his opponents.

Reflecting the team's high standards, the Springfield wrestlers were awarded the Team Sportsmanship Award, an honor bestowed by the 8 referees at the tournament. Coaches Floyd Buck Jr and Don Beebe are very proud of all the kids and are looking forward to upcoming tournaments as the team travels to Barre, Bennington, and Fair Haven VT before the State Championship for grades 3-6 on April 9th.

  1. Don Beebe and Floyd Buck has done such a great job with this program. THANKS!!

    How about some press on 3/4 grade basketball girls team that won a tournament championship. Also the boys team did exceptionally well!! Would love to see more kids sports in the news, keep them interested and it continues to build a strong sports atmosphere and a winning environment, which yes, is important to children as well as adults. This is all great stuff for Springfield.
