January break for varsity wrestlers (1/14/10)

A week-and-a half break awaited the Champlain Valley Union High varsity wrestling team after its Wednesday evening home matches against Milton High and Middlebury Union High.

The jayvee wrestlers, who came in second at a J.V. tournament in Middlebury last weekend, will travel to St. Johnsbury for a tournament this Saturday.

Three varsity wrestlers took part in the annual Otter Valley Union Invitational Tournament last weekend. Sophomore Sam Fortin grappled his way to the championship round in the 171-pound class before finally settling for second place. Fortin is 13-2 for the campaign.

Junior Ryan Stearns took third among the 135-pounders and sophomore Tucker Austin scored a preliminary win.
