The Wellington High School varsity wrestling team started off the season with two big preseason classic wins. The Wolverines started with a first round win over South Fork 72-12 before defeating Forest Hill in the finals 43-21.

Several WHS wrestlers went 2-0: Jared Abramson (106 pounds, freshman), Bailey Laster (120 pounds, senior), Colton Macfarlane (126 pounds, junior), Quentin McCauley (132 pounds (sophomore), Eric Reid (138 pounds, sophomore), Parker Evans (152 pounds, sophomore), Josue Arce (182 pounds (senior) and James Gilfus (285 pounds, senior).

“We only have three returning varsity wrestlers in our lineup, but the new kids really stepped up for the team and came away with some big wins,” coach Travis Gray said.
