Wellington Wrestling Club Shines

The Wellington Wrestling Club recently competed in the AAU Florida Youth State Championships in Kissimmee. Eighth grader Sam Marvel won the state championship in the middle school 117-pound division and became only the second Wellington wrestler in history to earn the Grand Champion award, which required him to win all four qualifying tournaments and the final championship. Fifth graders Justice Harding (75 pounds) and Tyler Gray (85 pounds) both earned state runner-up honors.
