Crestwoo Middle School Wrestling PTC Co- Champions

Anjanette Vespucci Published:

Rundown for our CMS PTC Wrestling Co-Champions in the tournament is as

follows:

Almost every wrestler scored points for us in the tournament, which was

absolutely crucial in the heart pounding chase for team honors, as the top four

teams were decided by 4 and a half points!

8 PTC Finalists!

At Heavyweight, first year wrestler Eric Lawless not only won his 24th match of

the season, but actually helped secure our final necessary points of the

tournament with his 5th place victory.

At 80 pounds, Kenzie Tayerle took an incredible 4th place in one of the toughest

weight classes in the tournament!

At 116 pounds, Max Weatherbee avenged an early round loss in his finals, winning

his 34th match of the season, and taking a well deserved 3rd place!

At 160 pounds, Aaron Zielinski earned his team leading 36th victory of the

season, earning a solid 3rd place finish!

At 104 pounds, Alex Kachenko wrestled his heart out, earning an awesome 2nd

Place finish, and giving the eventual champion, an undefeated Ohio junior high

state placer, the toughest match of his 38-0 season!

At 142 pounds, Lucas Gerardi matched Kachenko's courage with his very own 2nd

place finish, behind yet another Ohio junior high state placer, finishing his

tremendous season with 30 wins.

At 110 pounds, Zach Brunty continued his dominance over the PTC, becoming our

first individual champion of the PTC tournament, with his 30th victory of this

season.

At 128 pounds, Nick Vespucci silenced every critic in the state by beating his

nearly invincible Kent rival, as well as giving Crestwood its second individual

PTC champion of the tournament, in the most thrilling and meaningful match of

the tournament!

An absolutely phenomenal performance by a group of wonderful young adults, whose

only flaw of the entire weekend was their absolutely horrible rendition of

Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" on the bus ride home!
