Section IX Wrestling Championships

The Kingston High School Varsity Wrestling Team competed in the Section 9 championships on Saturday, February 9.

Jake Chenier, KHS Junior, won the 113lb. Championship by outscoring his opponents 6-0, 5-0, and 8-0, en route to his victory. Jake is Kingston's 24th Section Champion, being the first since 2013. He will go on to compete at the State Tournament in Albany at the Times Union Center on February 22.

Teammates who placed at Sectionals were Gavin Richter (4th, 126lbs), Myles Gordon (6th, 145lbs), Zavier Bennet (6th, 182lbs), and Stephon Holmes (6th, 220lbs). 

Hayden Barley, Senior and co-captain, finished a terrific season with his first Section 9 finals appearance. Hayden was the #2 ranked wrestler in his weight class last year, but an injury cut his season shorter than expected.
