    Hornets finish third at sectional tournament


    With two champions and five other district qualifiers, Kirtland’s wrestling team finished in third place at the Berkshire Division III sectional wrestling tournament on Saturday.

    “We’re pretty happy with getting seven guys out and taking third place,” Kirtland coach Scott Francis said.

    Freshman Louka Babic and Aidan Marsh claimed titles at 145 and 152 pounds, respectively.

    Babic finished 3-0 with a 19-second pin and two decisions to his credit while Marsh was 4-0 with two major decisions and a pin.

    “It was good to see Louka Babic take first as a freshman,” Francis said. “Aidan Marsh was second last year and this year he got the championship, so he’s been the championship two years in a row. That was good to see. Very quietly, they’ve both won a lot of matches this year. They work hard and put the time in the room and it’s starting to show up now.”

    Anthony Gencarelli (220) and Jeff Kusar (285) both finished second and Brayden Adkins (160) and Brennon Braud (182) placed third. Carter Williamson was fourth at 106.

    “That’s one of the first times Carter wrestled 106,” Francis said. “He’s been wrestling 106 all year and has been wrestling 113. He took the opportunity to wrestle 106 and ran with it.”
