Wrestling magazine honors VUHS champ

FERRISBURGH — Wrestling Insider Magazine, known as WIN, in its June edition picked Vergennes Union High School junior 185-pound champion Brandon Cousino as its Vermont Wrestler of the Year. 
Cousino, a Ferrisburgh resident, was the only Vermont wrestler to post an undefeated regular season, a record that included victories in several challenging out-of-state tournaments as well as all in-state competition and the Vermont championship meet in late February.
Cousino also earned all-New England status by finishing in the top six at the regional meet and was nominated for the sportsmanship award at the Vermont meet.
Cousino became the fifth Commodore to win a state title since 2007 and the third to earn all-New England recognition since 2012.
VUHS assistant wrestling coach and alumnus Scott Bissonette said Cousino would almost certainly break Bissonette’s school record for wins (139) during his senior year, and said he was thrilled for Cousino and the entire program.
“This is a great accomplishment for not just Brandon, but for VUHS and the Vergennes wrestling family,” Bissonette said.
