Mount Abe wrestles to fourth in Vermont championship meet

BRANDON — No local wrestlers were crowned state champions on Saturday night at Otter Valley Union High School, but eight earned top-four finishes and several more reached the podium with top-six efforts.
Mount Abe junior Roman Mayer, a champion at 120 pounds a year ago, fared best, taking second at 132. Two of his teammates put in third-place performances, senior Ben Murray at 126 and junior Kevin Pearsall at 182.
They helped Mount Abe (105.5 points) finish fourth in Vermont behind 30-time champion Mount Anthony (274.5), Essex (168), and St. Johnsbury (120), with Spaulding (69) in fifth.
 Three Eagles finished fourth: Parker Gero at 120, John Bent at 145 and Nate Lavoie at 152.
Junior Josh Beayon of the Otters finished third at 170 to highlight the host team’s efforts, and Middlebury senior Dustin Davio took fourth at 132 to lead his squad.
The Independent will publish full results for all local competitors in the Thursday edition.
