On November 27th, Bellcate’s Athletic Director, Jamie Moore, dropped Eric off at Milton High School for the first wrestling practice of his life. The two could only imagine that in two short weeks, Eric would not only participate in his first wrestling meet, but win his weight class. Well, as the story goes, that’s exactly what Eric did! With a 5 wins and 0 loss record, Eric claimed the 195 weight class championship at the Otter Valley HS Open this past Saturday in Brandon, Vermont. “He was a beast on the mats,”explained Jamie Moore, who along with Eric’s fellow Bellcate Bulldog, Abdi, were able to watch Eric’s first match. “I was not only impressed with his physical strength, but also his wrestling IQ as a young wrestler was tremendous” added Moore. Eric also had the support of his cousin, who wrestles for the middle school team! Great job Eric! We are all very proud of you!
