The Westfield-Ripley-Chautauqua Lake youth wrestling team was crowned regional team champion at the NYWAY Far Western Regional Qualifier on Sunday in North Tonawanda. Three-hundred seventy wrestlers from over 30 teams gathered to compete in the area qualifier for 2018 NYWAY States. WRCL wrestlers dominated throughout the day with 23 of 24 wrestlers qualifying for next weekend’s states at SUNY Brockport. The team made its way to the team trophy by racking up eight regional champions, 10 second-place finishes, three third-place finishes and two fourth-place finishes. Wrestlers will compete with the top four placers in each division/weight from all New York state regions over two days next weekend to see who will be crowned as state champions.
