Davidian Second In Woburn Invitational

Junior 152-pounder helps Tewksbury finish seventh.

continued to build his reputation as one of the top wrestlers in the area Saturday, finishing second overall in the 152-pound weight class at the Woburn Invitational Meet at Woburn High School.

Davidian won four matches before losing a major decision in the finals.

"Mike had another good day," said TMHS coach Brian Aylward. "He beat a  real tough kid from Lowell in the semi-finals to get to the finals. He's wrestling real well. We're excited about where he's at right now."

Junior Chris London (160) and Derek Tarpey (171) each took third place in their respective weight classes.  London beat the 6th-ranked wrestler in the state at 160 pounds before losing in overtime in the semi-finals. Tarpey also won four matches before getting pinned in the semi's.

"Derek was up 9-0 in the semifinals and the other kid hit a headlock out of no where," Aylward said. "He was in total control up until that point."

Juniors (135) and Andrew Conserva (215) each had multiple wins and finished one victory away from placing in the meet.

Tewksbury finished seventh overall, in spite of entering the meet without two of their top performers. Juniors (130) and Matt Greenwood (140) were both out with the flu.

"Overall, I'm happy with where we finished," Aylward said. "Our guys fought hard. Especially with the teams that were there. This tournament had some of the top teams in the state."

The Redmen have a pivotal dual meet with Wilmington scheduled for Wednesday, but Aylward likes what he sees as the team moves toward the state tournament.

"We try to build toward the end of the year tournaments, and this was a step in the right direction," Aylward said. "Hopefully, we can build on what we did today."
