Wrestling Defeats Newark Charter in Exciting Comeback

On Wednesday, February 3, the Archmere wrestling team came back to defeat Newark Charter after trailing them by 10 points. They picked up six points on a pin, plus another six on a forfeit to lift them to victory. With the team down going into the last few matches, senior Sanjay Long snagged a first-period pin at the 220 lb match, and a forfeit win for senior Bennett Brooks at 285 gave Archmere the win.

Archmere, now 3-0, will visit Wilmington Charter on Saturday at 2 pm.
