​​Strike Zone spent the weekend in Portland, Maine for Marshwood's New England Championships. After all said and done, our kids came away with 4 second place finishes, 2 fourths, and 2 fifths. Joey, Cameron, Lukas, and Calvin all took home runner up trophies.  Killian and Zaire both took home 4th place medals, and Niam and James took 5th.  Jesse, Nicholas, Remo, and Lucas all had some exciting matches and wrestled their hearts out but missed the medal round. 


This New England tournament is a tough tournament but it's our favorite tournament of the season. Everyone has a lot of fun. Thanks to Coach Greg, Jeremy, Bryan, and Kevin for running crazy from mat to mat. Thanks to Donna a/k/a "Mamma Strike Zone" for keeping us coaches up to date on who's on what mat and when. Thanks to all the parents who take the time and money to bring your kids to all these tournaments week after week. It's exhausting, but these kids will have memories for life. 

​​One of Strike Zone's little guys, Lukas, was out in Ohio this weekend wrestling in the Tournament of Champions. Proud to say that out of 36 kids in his bracket he wrestled his heart out and took 6th place. With so many Champions from different States this was an awesome day. Great job Lightning Boy!!!
