Three Wrestlers Compete In Atlanta

The Wellington Wrestling Club advanced three wrestlers to the USA Wrestling Kids Nationals last weekend at the Southeast Regional National Qualifier held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Jake Maffi (Schoolboy 130-pound division) led the way with a first-place finish in Freestyle and a second-place finish in his Greco bracket. Tyler Gray (Intermediate 71-pound division) placed second in both his Freestyle and Greco brackets. James Kosza (Novice 67-pound division) competed in Freestyle only and lost in the consolation semifinals of his bracket. Advancing three wrestlers to the Kids Nationals event is a club record, and they will be returning to Atlanta June 29 through July 1. Shown above (L-R) are Tyler Gray, Jake Maffi and James Kosza.
