Youth Wrestling at Washington Academy on Tuesday


On Tuesday, March 4, 2014, The 1st Annual “Mats to Masses” Dual Competition Meet took place in the Calais High School gym. PreK-8th grade kids came from all surrounding areas to wrestle! It was a great turnout of 40+ boys and girls, some have already had some experience and some came to learn! Scott Carpenter gave a 30 minute lesson to all of the kids, and then the matches began!
