CANANDAIGUA — Tioga advanced 11 wrestlers into the quarterfinals, and sits in second place in the team standings after Day 1 of the annual Robert Bradshaw Invitational here at Canandaigua Academy.
Division I Webster-Thomas leads the team standings with 70 points, while Tioga has 68 points, and third-place Clarence has 65 points. Victor is in fourth place with 56.5 points, Horseheads is in fifth at 53 points, Pittsford sits in sixth at 52 points, and Chenango Forks is in seventh at 45.5 points.
“For the first full round, I think we wrestled pretty well,” said Tioga coach Kris Harrington. “Pretty much our entire team is in the quarterfinals — there’s a lot of wrestling to do tomorrow.
“The guys who are suppose to win, did a lot of winning today,” he noted. “But, we better win in the round-of-16.”
The quarterfinals were originally slated to be held Friday night, but tournament officials re-scheduled them for Saturday morning.
Advancing to the quarterfinals for the Tigers were seniors Brady Worthing, David MacWhinnie, Dom Wood, and Jared Lamb, as well as juniors Justin Hopkins and Cole Williams, sophomores Emmett Wood and Mason Welch, and freshmen Emily Sindoni, Donovan Smith, and John Woodcock.
“I was glad to see Jared (Lamb) win,” said Harrington. “Jared works really hard, so to go out there and beat a seeded kid … gas him out, turn him, and pin him — that’s a nice win for him.”
