Over the Christmas holidays, the Brother Martin wrestling program kept busy with their tournament season in full swing. Starting with the Trey Culotta Invitational, at Brother Martin, the Crusaders captured first place out of 25 teams. The tournament was highlighted by runner-up finishes from Mason Elsensohn '20, Alex Duncan '20, Riley Horvath '20, Cameron Frederick '21, and Kyle West '20.
With only a handful of starters competing in a varsity tournament, the Crusaders went 5-0 at the Hahnville Duals. This was a great resource for the younger guys to get varsity experience and be very successful with an undefeated record. The team recorded wins over Zachary, Teurlings Catholic, Belle Chasse, Comeaux, and Fontainebleau.
After the New Years holiday, 26 Crusaders traveled to Atlanta, GA to compete at the Prep Slam. The tournament showcased 46 teams from 12 states. The Crusaders finished in third place highlighted by podium finishes from Ethan Castex '21 (6th), Quinn Williams '21 (6th), Alex Duncan '20 (4th), Riley Horvath '20 (4th), Cameron Frederick '21 (3rd), and Kyle West '20 (2nd).
