RL competes in 1st City of Boston Wrestling Championships
Roxbury Latin competed in the 1st (Annual) City of Boston Middle School (grades 5-8) Wrestling Championships on Saturday, January 21. Unfortunately, because of the “nuisance” snow, only 4 of the 7 schools/teams entered were able to attend—RL, Frederick Pilot Middle School, TechBoston Academy, and Parkway Wrestling Club. The tournament was a huge success, well run by the host school (FPMS), and hopefully a harbinger of bigger things to come for Boston youth wrestling.
RL wrestlers acquitted themselves well, winning 8 of the 14 4-man weight classes. RL’s champions were, by weight class:
83.5, Adam Banks VI
88, Zach Lehan V
99.5, Brent Samuels V
103.5, Nick Schiciano VI
105, Darcelis Worrell VI
115, Rafael Brantley V
119, Evan Epstein V
128, Joe Lomuscio VI
Those winning one match and placing 2nd or 3rd included Mitchell Garvey VI, Hamilton Coiscou VI, Jim McCoy VI, Oliver Xu VI, Logan Warshaw V, Michael Rounds VI, Danny Penella VI, Matt Smith V, Jake Powell V, and Michael Healy VI.
