WRESTLING

MYA at Crusader Open

The Merrimack Youth Wrestling Program did well at the fourth annual Crusader Open tournament held at Manchester Memorial High School.

First grader Cayden Dine racked up three wins, one by pin, for another first place crown. Sixth grader Aiden Hanning lost only once on the day, good enough for second. Second grader Ivey Johnson pinned her first opponent and had a spectacular throw that brought the crowd to its feet in her second match. She finished in third on the day.

Other competitors included kindergartner Kael McAloon, first grader Jackson Meehan, third graders Owen Forrest, Mitchell Krupp, and Marshall Koranda, and fifth grader Hunter Adams. Sixth grader Anthony Maglio forfeited his matches due to injury.
