In its first season, The Center Wrestling Club went from just becoming familiar with the feel of wrestling in a tournament to bringing home six championship medals.

This past weekend, the club took its team to compete in the rookie division of the Brandon Wrestling Club Tournament. In addition to the first place finishes, Caden Quinby, Ethan Sackett and William Pakbaz took second place in their divisions. Bam Gartman and RJ Phelan brought home the third place medals.

Under the seasoned guidance of head coach Will Schenerlein, Dylan Sato, Fox Smith, Stone Smith, JM Feeney and Jaxon Henry earned first place honors. To top off the wonderful experience, Schenerlein’s son, Harrison Schenerlein, was the champion in his division. H. Schenerlein carries on the wrestling legacy in his family.

In one year, W. Schenerlein and the wrestling club achieved all of the goals laid out for the team when it was first established.
