WINDHAM, Feb. 21 -- It's been nine long years for the tradition-laden Windham High wrestling team without a championship.
"We've been so close through the years," Windham coach Pat Risley told the New London Day. "I've believed in myself and my abilities to get the kids ready. But I was beginning to wonder whether it was ever going to happen. It seemed like something always came up."
The only thing that will be going up this winter at Windham will be another championship banner. The No. 2 Whippets had nine medalwinners and four individual champions as they captured their first Class M championship since 1994 with a 227-167½ victory over defending champion Killingly.
Travis Roberts (130), Kurtis Strout (140), Bran Crudden (145) and Chris Finnie (275) each brought home titles for Windham, which brought home its eighth state championship.
How good a day was it for the Whippets? Freshman Jon Torres filled in at 135 pounds for the injured Jordan Blain, who got hurt on Thursday after an accident with an all-terrain vehicle. Torres finished fourth but picked up several victories for Windham and plenty of key points.
Berlin finished third with 163 points. The Redcoats had eight medalwinners, including Dan Madey, who won at 135 pounds with a 4-2 win over Jeff Larrow of Woodstock Academy.
Larrow pinned Madey in their last encounter. "(Madey) secured a quick takedown which he hadn't been able to do before," Berlin coach Jim Day told The Herald Press. "He hadn't been able to penetrate Larrow's defense but he's been working on his low-leg attack and he used that to his advantage."
Woodstock Academy's Nick Miragliuolo earned his first state championship. After finishing second for the past two years, Miragliuolo beat RHAM's Scott Warren with a takedown with seven seconds remaining to earn a 5-3 victory. Warren had tied the bout with 20 seconds left with an escape.
RHAM senior Greg Dussol (152) won his third straight Class M title by pinning Killingly's Dave Loomis in 4:55. Dussol was named the tournament MVP.
Killingly's Larry Loomis (160) remained undefeated at 43-0 with a victory over New Fairfield's Ryan Quinn by an 8-6 margin. Waterford's Shawn Karasevicz (189) is also undefeated at 35-0 after his pin of Windham's Ferdinand Quiles in 3:06.
