Wellington Wrestlers Qualify For National Event

Chris Difiore and Eric Saber

The Wellington Wrestling team recently competed in the annual Super 32 Qualifier tournament held at Osceola High School. The top four finishers all qualify for the Super 32 Preseason National event in Greensboro, N.C., on Oct. 28-29.

Sophomore Chris Difiore and senior Eric Saber both qualified for the event by placing third in their 64-man brackets.

Difiore and Saber took a very different path to their third-place finishes. Difiore advanced to the semifinals, where he lost a 3-0 match to the eventual champion, and then finished with two wins.

Saber lost the first round and then rallied off six straight victories, including his third-place match against the same opponent he lost to in round one.
