Martha Gao '17 and Liz Seero '18 each placed 2nd at the USA Wrestling Girls New England Folkstyle meet
Martha Gao ’17 and Liz Seero ’18 each placed second at the USA Wrestling Girls New England Folkstyle tournament held at Springfield Technical Community College on Sunday March 5th. Gao lost her opening round-match to a Cadet National Freestyle champion from Pennsylvania (out-of-state wrestlers were allowed to enter the tournament) 7-0, then rebounded to win her next two bouts, 10-0 and by pin, to earn second place in the 112-pound weight class. Seero lost 4-0 in the first round to a quality wrestler from Massachusetts, then won three bouts, 4-3 and by pins in the second and third period, to secure second place at 148 pounds. Gao ran her season record to 15-10 and has now placed in four tournaments this season. Seero, who won a title at the Phillips Academy Girls tournament, improved her season record to 8-2. Both girls represented Andover well and the match experience will help them as they prepare to compete in the USA Wrestling Girls National tournament in Oklahoma City, March 24-25.
