Strong Showing For Two Area Wrestlers

The Wellington Wrestling Club traveled to Cypress Bay High School last Saturday to compete in the Hercules Tire Challenge, and two local kids brought home medals.

The Wellington Warriors were led by Jesse Weinberg (8th grade, 85 pounds), who not only won his bracket, but was not scored on and took home the Hercules Iron Man award for being the top wrestler in the youth division. Seth Rhodes (6th grade, 105 pounds) also captured a third place medal in his division.

“This was the first travel tournament for Seth Rhodes, and it was great to see him make the podium, and we look forward to watching him grow this year,” coach Travis Gray said. “Jesse Weinberg has grown so much in the past year wrestling and training year round. We have seen him beat kids who he has previously lost to and can really see his hard work paying off.”

The Wellington Wrestling Club practices on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Village Park on Pierson Road. For more info., contact Gray at (561) 827-8595 or
