The young athletes from Milford Youth Wrestling (MYW) traveled to Fitchburg on January 26 to take part in the inaugural Central Mass Youth Wrestling League Championship. The Central Mass Youth Wrestling League (CMYWL) consists of wrestlers from Kindergarten through 8th grade with wrestling teams from Fitchburg, Acton, Athol, Milford, Marlboro, Littleton, Algonquin, Leominster, Lunenburg and Quabbin. This is MYW first year of taking part of the CMYWL.
The tournament was divided into 2 divisions: Kindergarten through 4th grade and 5th grade through 8th grade. Each athlete wrestled opponents within a year of their age and was also further divided into weight classes. The competition is extremely close. The CMYWL awarded team trophies to the top four teams in each division.
The MYW team did extremely well, in both divisions, at the inaugural championship. The K-4 team came up only a few points short of being champs. They finished 2nd place behind host team Fitchburg. The 5-8 team again was just shy of being champs finishing 2nd behind a very experienced Algonquin team.
Milford should be very proud of these wrestlers.The team has only been around for four years and has accomplished so much already under the guidance of MYW Director Doug Maier and his Coaches and Staff.
Milford Youth Wrestling is a non-profit youth athletic organization run by volunteer members. MYW is affiliated with Massachusetts Youth Wrestling Association and is one of over 100 such teams in the state. The club is funded entirely by each participant's registration fee, fundraising efforts, and donations. The goal of the organization is to introduce boys and girls to the sport of amateur wrestling in a competitive environment.For more info visit our website, www.MilfordYouthWrestling.org.
