Cavanna leads talented GHS wrestling squad

The winter sports season is in full gear. Most wrestling teams hit the mats for the first time on the Monday after Thanksgiving, and they will all be in action this week.

The area boasts some strong wrestlers to return this year. Glastonbury is always tough and is all coming off excellent seasons from last year.

Again, Glastonbury will look for Andrew Cavanna to lead them to the state finals.

The Glastonbury Tomahawks should be a top contender as usual. They are coming off of a season that is hard to top. Last season they won the CCC North, and came in the top ten at the State Open. There should be no drop off from last season, as they return an extremely strong core of wrestlers.

Their ace in the hole is senior Andrew Cavanna.

On top of being a stud lineman in football, Cavanna is one of the best wrestlers in the state. Last season he compiled a record of 54-0.

He was last year’s New England Champion at 220, Class LL Champion, and an all-conference selection last season.

He helped lead the charge to a 20 win regular season.

The team also finished 7th overall in the Class LL Tournament.

They also return Josh Jones, Nick Yacovone, Andy Bedard, Reese Turovac, Klint Drici, Jamie Tow, Steven Rost, Alex Fahey, and Tom Reardon. They begin their season against Farmington on December 18th.

Glastonbury will miss Joe Rosetti, a freshman who was a state champion last year, he has transferred to a private school.

However, the team has enough depth and strong numbers in multiple weight classes in order to make up for the loss of his points.
