The Jensen Beach wrestling season came to culmination in Kissimmee the 1st weekend in March. We were poised to make a run at a team trophy at the state tournament but after a rough 1st round and the depth of 2A that goal become distinct. To the boys credit they rebounded and fought their way back in the consolations and grabbed 5 state medals with Joey Tufo (120) and Hayden Zehe (160) both losing in the blood round.
State medalist listed below…
- Chad Nix (195)
- Jeret Harvey (285)
- Wyatt Kirkham (132)
- Jack Sopotnik (170)
- Caelin Cascione (145)
The 2017-2018 Jensen Beach wrestling team will go down as one of the best teams in school history. A big shout out of appreciate and love to our seniors. Joey Tufo, Caelin Cascione, Terrence Dore, Jack Sopotnick, Blake Wiswell, and Jeret Harvey! I wish them nothing but continued success, luck, and blessings as they continue the journey of life that we are all on.
As we say good bye to our seniors we quickly get back to work. This past weekend 5 guys travels to Virginia Beach to compete at High Nationals. Nick Davenport (1-2), Kenny Hauck (0-2), Luke Sopotnick (2-2), Wyatt Kirkham (2-2), and Chad Nix (1-2) all made the trip. As nobody came home with any hardware hopefully valuable experiences was gained and lessons were learned. Watching high level wrestling is always fun and exciting!
The TC Palm All-Area team and wrestler of the year finalist were released in last week’s paper. Jensen Beach wrestlers once again were all over it.
One more thank you to all the wrestlers, coaches, parents, alumni, managers, sponsors, school administration, and anyone else who supports this great program!
Please don’t forget to follow the team on social media. It’s a great way to stay up to date with what’s going on and to continue to grow wrestling!
