Gloucester High School’s first wrestling meet of the season ended in a tough loss for the Fishermen. The Saugus Sachems took home a 36-30 win.

This year’s team is lead by a duo of senior captains, Chris Jacques and Colin Harrison. Jacques is the team’s heavy weight wrestler. He won his match through a forfeit as Saugus had no one to compete against him.

“It could’ve gone better, not as many kids should’ve gotten pinned,” said first year wrestler Chris Cassettari. “We have a couple empty spots that kill us because it’s a forfeit so the other team gets six points.”

Cassettari may be coming off of Gloucester’s football season, but he is already showing promise for the wrestling season ahead. He won his match last night in only twelve seconds. Cassettari match nearly beat the team’s previous record of eight seconds.

Gloucester is also returning other starters such as seniors Peter Desimone and Emmanuel Tejada. According to captain Colin Harrison, eighth graders Quinten Ulrich and Jeff Allen are already starting to show promise for the season ahead.

While the team may have lost their meet, they have high hopes for the rest of their season.

“We need to work really hard at practice and we have to get better and listen to the coaches when they’re yelling on side,” said Cassettari.

The wrestling team still has a few open weight classes. Those interested in joining can talk to either of the captains.

    Our wrestlers personify toughness, guts, and commitment. This sport is NOT for the feint of heart, and it is an honor to work with these athletes.

    For those who want to test themselves and think they can hang with this program, talk with one of the wrestlers.

    We need workers, not glamorous super stars
