Simsbury High School, January 22, 2023
January 24, 2023 – This past weekend, Team Tugman competed in two tournaments. Some of our athletes traveled to Tulsa, Oklahoma to compete at the W.O.W. Tulsa Nationals, while 13 of our wrestlers competed at the Simsbury Trojan Style Youth Tournament. TTWC showed its grit and talent by finishing second or third in each of the 3 divisions in which it had competitors. The Club also had 7 individual champions to go long with its top 3 finishes as a Team.
Coach Tugman will provide a recap of the Club’s results from the Tulsa tournament soon. For now, here are a few highlights from the Simsbury Tournament:
Keegan Rosenschein, wrestling in both the 10U and 12U divisions, finished second in both brackets. Noah Oliveira won his third tournament of the year, while Sam Forman continues to dominate his brackets. Cecilia Verrilli, wrestling in the Middle School Co-Ed division, took second place, dropping a close match to the eventual champion. All of our entrants were competitive and wrestled hard. Coach CJ Luth, helming the Club this weekend while Coach Tugman was in Tulsa, commented that, “It was great to see the kids out there wrestling hard and trying the things we teach in practice. While I saw some things we still need to work on, overall I was quite happy with the level of skill I saw. We are starting to peak at just the right time.”
