While the Mount Anthony Union High wrestling team captured a second straight New England Interscholastic wrestling crown last Friday and Saturday at Providence, R. I., Champlain Valley Union High came away with an historical high in the event.
Senior Grant Poston took third place in the 170–pound class, the best ever showing by a CVU wrestler.
Previous CVU highs had been fifth place individual finishes in 2002 and 2013.
The Redhawks’ Kienan Kittredge won preliminary rounds in the 195–pound division before being eliminated.
Mount Anthony, the Vermont champions, had three finalists, two of them winners, in taking the team triumph by 13 points over runner–up Danbury, Conn. There were 160 wrestlers in the competition.
