'Too early to make any predictions' in R.I. wrestling

January 15, 2012

CUMBERLAND — When it came time to wrestle the finals of Saturday night’s John D. Gorman Memorial Tournament at Cumberland High, two chairs at matside were occupied by coaches from Bishop Hendricken (Kevin Hennessey) and Warwick Veterans (George Schmeider).
“They’re just wrestling junkies,” Cumberland coach Steve Gordon said with a laugh on Sunday morning, after his balanced team had captured the team title despite crowning only one individual champion (Tom LaCroix at 195). “Kevin and George probably just wanted to see our boys wrestle. They’re scouting, of course, checking us out.

Clippers capture John D. Gorman Memorial Tournament

January 14, 2012

CUMBERLAND – It was a strange kind of tournament for Cumberland, which easily clinched the John D. Gorman Memorial team title before the finals began on Saturday night, then saw its first four finalists lose before unbeaten Tom LaCroix salvaged some Clipper pride with a convincing win at 195 pounds.
Lincoln High heavyweight Nick Zicuis capped the tournament with a 3-2 victory in the 285-pound finals, scoring a late takedown to edge Durfee High’s Andre Torres.

January 14, 2012

CUMBERLAND — For 22 straight years, Bishop Hendricken has worn the crown and this season it doesn’t seem like that will change.
La Salle Academy has dominated the girls’ side the past four years and an equally-strong squad has returned for the winter campaign.

The rest…it’s anybody’s guess?
