Redhawk wrestlers on the road

After dividing home matches with Mount Mansfield Union (loss) and Milton High (win) a week ago Wednesday, the Champlain Valley Union High wrestling team faced three straight road trips, starting this past Wednesday at Enosburg High.

Wednesday’s match was scheduled for after press deadline.

The Redhawks will be back on the asphalt Saturday, bound for St. Johnsbury Academy and its Early Bird Tournament, which starts at 10 a.m. On Monday, coach Rahn Fleming and his grapplers will cruise down Interstate 89 for a session at Randolph High.

Last week, the Redhawks bowed 48-30 to Mount Mansfield, but emerged with a 36-27 triumph over Milton in a tri-meet on the CVU mats.

Schuyler Himberg (125 pound class) and James Datillio (285) scored wins in the victorious match.

Against MMU, Ryan Stearns (135) and Sam Fortin (171) were CVU victors, while Pat Shea (125) earned an exhibition thumbs upper.
