Hornet Grapplers Take Home Hardware From Holiday Tournament





December 23rd, 2007


MECHANICSVILLE, Va- The Herndon wrestling team traveled to the Lee-Davis Holiday Classic last weekend at Lee-Davis High School in Mechanicsville, Va. The Hornets placed in seven of the eleven weight classes and the team took seventh out of 16 teams.

Junior Nick Ziegler (130) placed a team high of 3rd, while sophomore Josh Pike (112) and juniors Fraser Trotter (160) and James Neville (215) earned 4th place. Also placing were juniors Matt Medvene (5th at 145), Adam Valcourt (5th at 171), and senior Brian Thompson (6th at 140).

Adam Valcourt, in his first varsity tournament of the year, nabbed 5th place, after pinning the #1 seed from Hampton in the quarterfinals. Valcourt, who had just cracked the Hornet lineup in the days leading up to the tournament, looked competitive in his first varsity outing.

Nick Ziegler earned a third place finish at 130 pounds, the best finish of his young career. Ziegler, although a junior, is only in his second year of wrestling.


“Nick is probably one of the hardest working guys in the wrestling room. He has improved so much from last year, it’s unbelievable” Coach Gonzales said. “He competes hard, and with a lot of energy. He isn’t satisfied unless he is winning.”


Herndon will compete in the Prince William County Invitational over the holiday break at Gar-Field High School in Woodbridge. The two day tournament kicks off on Thursday, Dec 27, with finals beginning on Friday, Dec 28 at 5pm. This invitational marks the final competition for the Hornets before they embark on their dual meet regular season.
