So far, so good for the Newtown High School wrestling team. The grapplers have won three early-season tournaments in Fairfield, Trumbull and, most recently Natick, Mass., and have had their way with four opponents in dual meets. Newtown placed fifth in the 14-team Danbury Holiday Tournament, won by the host Hatters.
“We’ve been drilling a lot harder this year — practices are a lot harder,” 220-pound grappler Ryan Wagner said. “It’s definitely paying off a lot.”
