This past weekend, the Colchester Cobras youth wrestling organization hosted their fourth annual “Battle In The Bay” tournament. Bringing over 200 athletes together from all over Vermont and surrounding states, the competition was packed with loyal fans and family members treated to four mats of action. Competitors ranged from those children just entering pre-kindergarten all the way through sixth grade.

Several of our wrestlers found their hard work rewarded, and maybe bolstered by a home mat advantage, as they felt their arms being raised in victory. Cobras that ended up with first place finishes were Brody and Jaden Coppins, Cahota Lafond, Nick Forguites, all three of the Prouty brothers – Sawyer, Shay and Tanner, Graham Resmer, Lucas Fielden and Keegan Vance. Kaeden Schraml, Jake Marchessault and Tyler Mott all achieved second place finishes and Jordan Lavoie, Brayden Marchessault, Ivy Resmer, Karson Taylor and David Litchfield placed third at the end of the day. Also competing were Avery Retz, Jaxson Lewis, Garrett Crook, Finn Moseley and Cody Blackmer.
