Springfield youth wrestlers compete at Youth New Englands and Rumble in the Valley

On Saturday, March 11th, three Springfield youth wrestlers were throwing down in Salem MA with the top wrestlers in New England, while a dozen more 'green grapplers' stormed the Rumble in the Valley youth tournament at Otter Valley HS in Brandon VT.

Dillan Lacasse, Gabe McNeil, and Hunter Ferland made the trek with their families and with coaches Buck and Meier for Youth New Englands; major kudos to all the boys for qualifying for and competing in such an impressive arena. Hunter clocked an early win as the first Springfield VT kid to ever score team points at Youth New Englands!

At the Rumble in the Valley, Coach Don Beebe was assisted by senior wrestler Moira Stettner to help our wrestlers be their best. Springfield ended the day on a high note,with five champs (Garrett Brickey, Dave Crocco, John Jasinski Jr, Tristan Perry,and Dmitri Jasinski), three 2nd place wins (Kyle Bauer, Seth Markwell, and Jameer Cosby),and bronze medals for third place to Armando Stettner, Jayden Paul, and Noah Markwell. Sixth grader Cole Wright banked a terrific win early in the day, facing down multiple opponents in a series of tough matches. The entire team should be very proud as Springfield was awarded the Rumble in the Valley Team Sportsmanship Award for the SECOND YEAR in a row! This trophy is awarded by the voting of the referees at the event; Springfield won by a margin of 6:1.
