Feb 202018
 

The Amity Wrestling team competed in the Class L State Wrestling Tournament on Friday, February 16 and Saturday, February 17 at Bristol Central High School.

With a young squad of wrestlers and only three seniors in the starting lineup, Amity set a goal to place in the top ten teams in the Class L Tournament. With the tournament spanning two days, wrestlers need to be both mentally and physically ready to compete in this long and arduous competition.

After the first day, Amity had seven wrestlers advance to the round of 16.

Junior Cole Johnson and Freshman Josh Foote had crucial victories for the Spartans to help add to their team point total. Saturday saw Christian Chadwick, Aiden Hebert, Matt Rothman, Sam Keylock and Justin Griffin continue to win and advance to the state open qualifying rounds.

Senior Captain Matt Rothman advanced to the finals in the 152lbs. weight class eventually losing a hard-fought match 4-3. Junior Justin Griffin wrestled his way back to win third place in the 285 lbs. weight class. Senior Captains Christian Chadwick (113 lbs.) and Sam Keylock (160 lbs.) placed fifth along with Sophomore Aiden Hebert who also placed fifth at 120 lbs.

Head Coach Ryan Roddy said “Coach Todd Patterson, Coach Nate Shilling and I are thrilled with how well our team wrestled this weekend. We exceeded our goal by placing 8th as a team. Individually we had 5 medal winners; Matt Rothman placed 2nd, Justin Griffin placed 3rd and Christian Chadwick, Aiden Hebert, and Sam Keylock each placed 5th. We are excited to see what these 5 wrestlers can do this coming weekend at the State Open Tournament in New Haven. I believe each wrestler has unfinished business and will look to exceed his Class L placement.”

All five of these wrestlers qualified for the State Open Championships on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, Feb. 24 at the Floyd Little Center in New Haven.

There are a lot of first-year wrestlers picking up the sport quickly with underclassmen filing 10 out of 14 starting spots on the varsity lineup.”

“Seniors Christian Chadwick, Sam Keylock and Matt Rothman have been wrestling tough setting the tone for the Spartans placing top 3 in the past two tournaments and beating returning state place-winning opponents in the process. We are 4-2 against SCC opponents and just finished up a 3-0 weekend quad against Joel Barlow, Bethel, and New Haven.” Coach Roddy added “Our plans for the future is to continue to have the toughest and most determined athletes at Amity to come out for the sport and to build through our
youth programs in the three towns. “We don’t just want to participate at the state level, we want to compete.”
