National opportunity

Local wrestlers aim for All-American status, interest from colleges

(Continued)

Pinkerton’s Kevin Ell, a New England placer at 220, will also be competing (at 195), but he’s committed to wrestle at Plymouth State. Nashua North’s Joe Chemelski, a New England champ, is also entered at 195.

Several local wrestlers should fare well at the junior class level, led by Londonderry’s Jean-Luc Lemeiux. The 132-pound New England champion, who was a school-record 50-0, is planning on competing at 126 pounds at junior nationals.

Also, St. John’s Prep’s Ian Butterbrodt must be considered a factor at 220. The North Andover nationals finished fifth at sophomore nationals last year and brings a state-record 63-0 mark into the competition.

Timberlane’s Ryan Peters, who was third in New England at 138 and boasts a 48-3 mark, heads the locals at the sophomore nationals.

Wrestlers who advance to Sunday’s medal round will be automatic All-Americans.
