Despite only having nine wrestlers to fill out the normal 14 wrestler bracket, Ponte Vedra placed sixth in the Episcopal School of Jacksonville wrestling tournament on Saturday, Jan. 6.

Ponte Vedra's highest finisher was Gavin Riccobonno, who placed second in the 115-pound weight class. Riccobonno was followed by all four of his teammates who made it to the consolation finals.

Taking third place medals in the tournament were Rett Maritato (128), Alex DeAlmeida (134), Evan Merry (147) and Troy Maritato (172).

The Sharks’ wrestling team is competing in a two-day dual meet at Terry Parker High School this coming weekend.
