MIDDLEBURY — Three local wrestlers won their weight classes last week at Middlebury Union High School’s 40th annual Hubie Wagner Invitational Wrestling Tournament, a two-day event that concluded on Dec. 29.
Vergennes Union High School senior wrestler Geoffrey Grant not only won for the second straight year, but also after Grant prevailed at 170 pounds with a 7-0 record that included six pins and a 15-3 decision, the coaches of the 16 competing teams chose him as the tournament’s Outstanding Wrestler.

That program pays rental subsidies for tenants earning less than 50 percent of the area median household income, which is currently $35,750 for a family of four.
