Matt Harding Reaches 100 Career Victories
Three OA wrestlers reached the finals in the Hockomock Tournament
Submitted to Easton Patch:
Oliver Ames Senior Captain Matt Harding went undefeated in the Hockomock Tournament in North Attleboro today, and as he prepared for the title match to win the tournament championship in his weight class, he knew it wasn't just another match. Harding, his family, friends and the entire OA team knew exactly what it meant. It would represent his 100th career victory as a high school wrestler for Oliver Ames, the first wrestler in OA team history to accomplish that feat.
Achieving the 100 win mark is a milestone that very few high school wrestlers ever achieve. The 100 win club is typically limited to wrestlers with very special talent and Harding has exactly that. With this milestone achieved and behind him, Harding and his teammates now prepare for the post-season run, beginning with sectionals next Saturday, back at North Attleboro High School.
Three OA Wrestlers made it to the finals at today's Hockomock Tournament. Tim Gover (106) and Steve Treanie (220) also fought for the championship in their weight class and they each captured second place. Also placing were OA wrestlers Josh Briggs (285) in 3rd place and Will Barnard (182) in 4th place for their weight class.
"This is our best finish in the Hock Tournament", said Coach Adam Pomella, "Our previous best was two wrestlers in the championship, we did well today."
