Abbey Wrestlers Fare Well at Northern NE Tournament

Portsmouth Abbey wrestlers competed Saturday, February 7, in the Northern New England Wrestling Tournament, held at Tilton School, in Tilton, NH.

Kyle Morrissey '15, Chris Weiss '16, Tom Winters '16, Tom Teravainen '18 and Henry Wilson '18 represented Portsmouth Abbey. Although only five Abbey wrestlers participated in the tournament with more than 250 other athletes, the Ravens placed 12th out of 18 teams represented (and missed placing 11th by one point).

All five wrestlers represented the Abbey well and had strong performances in the tournament. Kyle Morrissey, with four wins, earned a third-place finish at 126 pounds, and Chris Weiss, wrestling in the 132-lb. class, was the champion of his bracket.

"It was a productive day and a great preparation for this weekend's Eastern Independent League championships," said Abbey Head Coach Mike McLarney. The EIL Championships will be held Saturday, Feb. 14, at The Landmark School in Beverly, MA.

Congratulations to the team on a job well done!
