Jon lost a tough QuarterFinals match that would have put him in the medals.
After a win, he lost a close QuarterFinals match in the Consolations that would have again put him in the medals.

as he stormed through the rest of his opponents for a 3rd place.  Joey won 6 matches on the weekend!

Thirteen of the fourteen weight classes had at least one win.  Almost 2/3's of these wrestlers, and 7 of the 9 medalists, are underclassmen!

We had our highest winning percentage, 42.9%, since returning to the New Englands in 1999 ... can't wait until next year!
