The Wellington Wrestling Club competed at the Wellington Summer Open last Saturday and had a number of wrestlers earn medals.
Champions were Adam Stowell (fifth grade, 65 pounds), Chakiris Townsend (fifth grade, 70 pounds), Jared Abramson (ninth grade, 110 pounds) and Colton Macfarlane (11th grade, 130 pounds).
Second place medal winners were Carson Stewart (second grade, 50 pounds), Jareth Buccilli (fifth grade, 95 pounds), Andrew Mitchell (12th grade, 130 pounds) and Josue Arce (12th grade, 170 pounds).
Third place medal winners were Colton Stewart (second grade, 55 pounds), Jaxson Patterson (fourth grade, 95 pounds) and Bailey Laster (12th grade, 130 pounds).
The club just finished its summer session, and coaches were impressed at how the kids advanced over the summer. Stowell was a great surprise, earning his first gold medal by winning all five of his matches.
