On Dec. 26, the wrestlers from Winnacunnet High and Seabrook Middle schools will join WHS head coach Eric Laromb in holding a Warrior Wrestling Clinic from 9 a.m. to noon at the Seabrook Recreation Center, located on Route 1.

All ages are welcome at the clinic, which is open to both boys and girls. No wrestling experience is needed. The clinic is offered free of charge and will allow youth to try basic wrestling techniques. Those who attend should bring workout clothes and a water bottle.

Last year, Seabrook voters OK’d the purchase of wrestling mats for the Rec Center, toward the goal of offering another sport to town children and also helping them learn proper and safe technique.

Seabrook Middle School has a strong wrestling team which has had significant success over the past few years. The clinic can help younger children learn the sport, and enter middle school prepared with strong skills.

Recently Winnacunnet wrestlers opened their season with a decisive win against ConVal High School.

The Warriors started off the season with a 46-23 victory, attributing its success to the young lineup pulling off dominant wins, and the true grit of the WHS wrestlers of not allowing themselves to get pinned, according to Lucas Rosa, the team’s captain.

This is the first Warrior win for Larcomb.

“The kids stayed in every single match, and fought when they were up and down, they never stopped trying,” Larcomb said. “It gave me a good sense of their character; they had the drive to never give up. We have a long way to go, the technique needs improvement, but the attitude was there.”
