Castleton Spartan Duals 2018; Awesome Off Season Wrestling
In only their second year, the Castleton Spartan Duals have proved to be the place to be. There were more positive comments about the tourney this year than quills on a porcupine. The tourney, thanks to the veteran braintrust of the Castleton Coaching Staff (Scott Legacy, Jeff Whitesell, Steve Forrest and Joe Duca) and NUWAY Wrestling started on time, ended early and ran a mat for exhibition matches all day. In all, wrestlers got at least 4-5 matches and some more.
The format for the tourney is pool wrestling with crossover matches. The Doughboy A team won the event for the second year in a row. They Beat Iowa Style aka Empire Wrestling in the Elite Finals. Spartan Wrestling Academy was the highest placing VT team taking 2nd in the Gold HS division. Winning the Gold was a team from Long Branch, NJ. In the K-8, we had a rematch of last years finals. Journeymen out of section 2, NY vs. Smitty’s Barn. The Barn prevailed and were also K-8 Repeat champs.
Teams from, MA, NH, VT, CT, NY, NJ were in attendance. Next year adding an individual tournament on Sunday.
As I have said countless times, off season training and tournaments are the key in taking your game to the next level. It really makes sense to go to a tournament that is close by that has high level talent.
This tournament promises to be an annual favorite and the abundantly knowledgeable Castleton Coaching Staff are dedicated to making it so!
