NHIAA Div. III Wrestling: Windham notches second straight title

Heading into the championship finals, Windham needed a strong showing to repeat as the Division III wrestling team champion.

That's exactly what it received as Jeff Armstrong and Dylan Swiderski won laurels at 113 pounds and 138 pounds, and Chris Serri guaranteed the gold medal with his 8-1 decision over Alex Lavalliere of runner-up John Stark at 182 pounds.

The Jaguars are in their fourth season of varsity wrestling.

Windham finished with 164 points while John Stark tallied 153 and Plymouth 145.

"During our first year we scored just six points, and the next year we finished fourth," said Windham coach Tom Darrin. "Now we've got two championships in a row."

Darrin was named the D-III Coach of the Year.

"It's a nice honor," said Darrin, "but it's the kids who won out there today. Windham is a great school with great kids. They never give up."

Windham finished the regular season undefeated in Division III competition with a 10-0 record.


Top 10 teams

1. Windham 164; 2. John Stark 153; 3. Plymouth 145; 4. Winnisquam, 67; 5. Campebell 64; 6. Souhegan 62; 7. Pelham 60; 8. Newport 52.5; 9. Sanborn 42; 10. White Mountains 34
