The Wellington Wrestling Club recently competed in the annual USA Wrestling Tournament at South Broward High School.
First-year wrestler Adam Pendleton (11th grade) finished with a perfect 3-0 record, with three pins in his first tournament action in the 138-pound division. Angel Lopez (10th grade) finished with a 1-2 record and in third place in the 195-pound division.
The Wellington Wrestling Club will be starting up again for for the winter season for wrestlers in kindergarten through the eighth grade Monday, Oct. 29.
“It was great to get some preseason action in for these guys,” Wellington Wrestling Club coach Travis Gray said. “Adam Pendleton has only been practicing for a few weeks, and he came out really aggressive and obviously had a lot of success, so we are hoping that fuels him and the other first-year wrestlers to see that their hard work is paying off.”
