Ridgefield Challenge – Rides

January 28, 2016 Leave a comment

Dear Parents,

In the years past, we have asked for help with transportation to and from the Ridgefield Challenge.  We again ask for help in getting wrestlers to Ridgefield High School and home again on Saturday.  The plan is to meet at Wilton High School at 7:15, and leave to travel to Ridgefield High School at 7:30.   We will also need some drivers to help get kids home. I asked the wrestlers to communicate this to you.  Please have them let me know if you are able to help.

Logistics:

Varsity only arrive at WHS Field House at 7:15 AM Saturday 1/30.

Caravan to Ridgefield HS at approx 7:30 AM

Weigh-ins start at 8:00 AM

Wrestling scheduled to begin approximately 9:30 AM following scratch/seeding/re-bracketing. Start time is approximate.

Thank you, Coach Foldeak

Wilton 33 – Ridgefield 39

January 28, 2016 Leave a comment

Hello again,

This season has been a tale of close matches with a very slim margin of error.  Our match last night against Ridgefield was a highly competitive, closely contested meet.  I’m very proud of the way the team wrestled.  Sometimes your best effort comes up just a bit short as it did last night.  Of the nine matches wrestled (discounting forfeits) we were able to outwrestle our opponents 5-4.

Winning for the Warriors:

108 Travis Long – Travis wrestled a great match against a tough opponent.

115- Finn McGovern – Finn stepped up and took the forfeit when we needed him to.

122 – Nick Rende – Nick wrestled a very solid match against a very tough opponent.  He did what we’ve come to expect from Nick.  He won.

134 – Quinn Reedy – Quinn like the previous wrestlers outwrestled a tough opponent.

162 – Matt Beck – Matt bumped up a weight class and pinned a heavier opponent.  This was a great win for Matt and the team.

172 – Zach Zeyher – Zach bumped up a weight also, and garnered his 20th win of the season.

287 – Tyler Warren – Congratulations to Tyler for his first pin of the season!

 

We will next wrestle Saturday at the Ridgefield Challenge.

 

Thanks, Coach Foldeak

Wilton 33 Norwalk 37

January 21, 2016 Leave a comment

This season has been filled with some close matches.  Tuesday night’s match was no exception.  The Warriors fell to Norwalk by three points.  Despite winning seven out of the eleven total matches wrestled, Norwalk prevailed.  Wilton was not able to overcome the eighteen points in forfeits we were forced to give up.

Winning for the Warriors:

  • 115 lbs –  Nick Rende improved his record to 20-1 with a first period pin.
  • 132 lbs – Quinn Reedy won by pin.
  • 140 lbs – Grayson Kennedy pinned his opponent to notch his first varsity win of the season.
  • 154 lbs- Jacob Robb scored his first varsity win for us with a 6-1 decision.
  • 160 lbs – Matt Beck scored a 17-5 major decision.
  • 170 lbs – Zach Zeyher earned his 19th win with a 6-4 decision.
  • 195 lbs – James Arbisi moved up two weight classes to garner his first varsity win this season with a second period pin.
