Wrestlers Qualify for National Prep Championship

Carly Barbato – February 20, 2017

Three Deerfield wrestlers, Henry Hayden ‘18, Will Shuhda ‘17 and Griffin Thomas ‘17, made their way to the medals podium over the weekend at the New England Wrestling Tournament. As place-winners, each qualified for the National Prep Wrestling Tournament at Lehigh University this coming weekend.

Though seeded 9th, Hayden, the Class A 106-lb champion, finished 3rd.  Shuhda earned a last-second victory to make the top six at 170 pounds.  Thomas, wrestling in the extremely tough 195-lb class, won two overtime matches to finish 5th.

Before being eliminated, both John Chung ‘20 and Mohamed Kadry ‘17 each won a match by a fall.

Good luck this weekend!
