The New Year Brings Victory


The Walt Whitman Vikings turned in an impressive home win against the Watkins Mill Wolverines on January 4th.  The Wolverines fielded a small squad and were forced to forfeit six of the 14 matches.  Of the remaining eight contested matches Watkins Mill only managed to win 3 of them resulting in a lopsided 61-17 victory for the Vikings.  In those eight matches, falls were recorded by Steven Canfield, Luke Cullinane and Mason Austin-Brantley.

Two days later the Vikings were back in action at the Patriot Classic.  This two day tournament was condensed into one very long Friday night event due to the impending snow storm which landed in our region on January 7th.  Congratulations to our wrestlers who persevered and placed in the tournament.  John Luke Iglesias was undefeated at 220 and took 1st place.  Clark Boinis (126) and Mason Austin-Brantley (182) both took home 5th place.  Congratulations are also in order to Peyton Casamento who wrestled very tough and made it into the fourth round.
