Prep school kudos
Congratulations to Phillips Academy and Brooks, both of which beat perennial power Northfield Mount Hermon Saturday in a multi-team meet at Northfield. Brooks also defeated a strong Exeter club and is now 11-1 on the year, which is why it has moved up to No. 3 in this week’s Fab 5. No. 2 North Andover’s second loss, incidentally, was by its “B” team Saturday while most of the starters were at the Cumberland Tournament.
Finding his weight
Pelham junior Matt Koch was wrestling up a weight class last year and had a tough time of it. At 126 pounds this year, he has the best record on the team, 12-4 as of late last week.
“He’s found a weight where he’s comfortable and he’s looked really good,” said Pelham coach Bob Riddinger.
Pelham, incidentally, will host its annual tournament this Saturday.
