Congratulations to the Whitman wrestling team for winning the Patriot Classic Wrestling Tournament this past weekend at Northern High School in Owings, Maryland. Twenty teams from across Maryland and Virginia participated in this two-day contest, bringing together tough competition that showcased some impressive wrestling. The Whitman grapplers descended on this event in full-force, with a squad so deep and strong that they clinched the team title even before taking the mat in the finals on Saturday night. Taylor Leighton was Whitman’s top performer. As the team’s only individual champion, Taylor pinned his way through every opponent to win the 189-pound title. Ten of Whitman’s other wrestlers also medaled. Winning second place in their weight classes were: Mike Harder (140 lbs), Andrew Follman (145 lbs), Alex Hysong (152 lbs), and Danny Lee (215 lbs); winning third place were: Sawyer Symington (112 lbs), Dylan Symington (119 lbs), Eric Harder (125 lbs), Jordan Tritell (135 lbs), and Ned Daryoush (Heavyweight). Ben Delia took 6th place at 130 lbs. The team is undefeated so far this year with a dual meet record of 4-0. Their next contest will be on Tuesday night (January 12) at Richard Montgomery High School. Come on out and support your Vikes!
