Veteran Wrestlers Shine against Belmont Hill

In only their second year on the mat, Belmont Day tri-captains Xander Lightbody, Evan Seymour, and Theo von Gottberg all wrestled strong this week against Belmont Hill. Lightbody and von Gottberg both recorded big wins, while Seymour lost a heartbreaker after a gritty performance. Seventh grade standouts Issac Frehywot and Harry Reitshamer also shined for the Blue & Gold despite some challenging matchups. Frehywot won his only match with a pin in the second after catching his opponent with a cradle. Reitshamer split his two matches, finishing the day 1-1 and looking impressive in both. The team finishes off their regular season next week on the road against Fenn and LCA.
