EAST GREENBUSH — The Northern Adirondack wrestling team compiled a 3-2 record at the Columbia Duals in East Greenbush Saturday.
The Bobcats dropped a 42-24 decision to Beekmantown before falling to host Columbia High School 59-13. Northern Adirondack, however, reeled off three consecutive wins over Schenectady (42-26), Warrensburg (42-40) and Beacon School (83-0).
“Matt Lashway went 5-0, and he had some tough matches on top of that,” Bobcats coach Jamie Gilmore said. “Jace Filion, who’s just a seventh grader, won some big matches for us. He finished 4-1, losing a close match with a tough kid from Columbia.”
After a three-hour bus ride, Gilmore said his wrestlers came out with focus and intensity.
“We’ve got to travel to get good competition, so the kids get the hang of it,” Gilmore said. “This weekend, we’re traveling over two hours to Mount Mansfield, Vt. It makes for a long day.”
Before venturing to the Green Mountain State, Northern Adirondack will play host to Peru for Senior Night tonight. Tyler Bracy, Dallas Page and Matthew Lashway will compete in their final Champlain Valley Athletic Conference matches.
