Wrestlers Shine At AAU National Duals

Medal winners Chris Difiore, Jared Abramson and Cameryn Townsend.

The Wellington Wrestling Club competed in the AAU National Scholastic Duals recently and returned with three individual All-Americans. The team finished with a 5-6 record without a senior in the lineup. That put the team in 24th place, which tied for the program’s highest finish at the event.

Jared Abramson became only the second Wellington wrestler in history to earn a gold medal with an undefeated record, joining 2014 alumni Briar Macfarlane. Also earning copper medals with 8-3 records were Chris Difiore and Cameryn Townsend. Robert Saldarriaga, Justin Henry, Eric Saber and Kyven Higgins finished with 7-4 records.
