JERICHO >> On Saturday, the Bellows Falls wrestling team placed eighth in a tournament at Mount Mansfield Union High School.
Lucas Saunders, Austin Taylor, Charles Dolloph, Garrett Waterman, DJ Snide, and Jake Lober all laced up their shoes and toed the line for the Terriers. Saunders, Dolloph, Snide, and Lober all advanced to the finals.
"Unfortunately, all four would lose their championship matches. On the positive side the losses left us with a very good idea of what mistakes need to be corrected over the next three weeks as we prepare for the Vermont State Tournament," said BF coach Todd Swisher.
Dolloph had his strongest tournament of the season, according to Swisher. The junior went 3-1, with three pins.
The MVL Jamboree is next up for Bellows Falls as they will travel to Bennington on Saturday. The JV/JH state tournament is set for Feb. 20, and then Feb. 26-27 is the Vermont State Championships, taking place at Mill River High School.
