The Garrett Invitational was a competitive tournament that will serve as good preparation for the upcoming state tournament series. Three Sophomores placed for the Squires with Isaiah Burlingame and Tyler Acosta getting 6th place by going 3-2, and Preston Duffy registering 3 Falls to get 3rd place at 220. Junior Zach France went 3-1 with 2 Falls to get 3rd, and Jordan Ayres went 4-1 to get 5th place with his only loss a controversial 12-10 loss by decision in the Quarterfinals. The lone Senior in the lineup Trevor Dill finished in 4th place for the Squires. Manchester had a competitive showing at a tough tournament with a few key starters out that would have changed the team score considerably. The Squires wrestlers will look to improve from this result heading into the Three Rivers Conference Tournament Saturday at Maconaquah.
