The event starts at 9:30 a.m.

This past Wednesday, the Redhawks journeyed to Randolph, where they grappled with their counterparts from Mount Abraham Union.

On Dec. 30, CVU came in seventh among 17 teams in the Hubie Wagner Invitational at Middlebury Union High.

Sherman Wood, who recently gained his 100th victory, placed second in the 136-pound division.

“That is a significant milestone in a wrestling career,” Fleming said of Wood’s century mark victory.

Also placing high in Middlebury were Jason Marko, third in the 145-pound group, and Stephen Fortin, third in the 152-pound division.
