First Tournament for Mad Dog Wrestlers

On Saturday, December 17, 2011 – 18 wrestlers participated in the Big Red NE Wrestling Championships at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, MA. Our first tournament as Team Mad Dog, we feel the experience was very positive for all. Wrestlers and parents witnessed first hand the electric atmosphere that only tournaments can provide…..along with the organized chaos, the excitement and passion of the coaches, the pride of standing on the podium, as well as the positive attitude shown when a match didn’t go so well. Above all each member of Team Mad Dog showed team unity, pride and great sportsmanship.

Congratulations to our wrestlers that placed in the top four :
Bantham Division - Dante (46) 3rd place; Brendon (52) 3rd place
Elementary Division - Adam (49) 4th place; Nate (54) 2nd place; Jack (109) 2nd place
