Wrestling: Five Gaels advance to State Open

Shelton High’s wrestling team, with 108.5 points, placed eighth in Saturday’s Class LL state championships at Trumbull High.

The Gaels had five grapplers among the top six, thus qualifying them for the State Open, which ties the school mark, coach Bill Maloney noted.

Chandler Duhame placed third in the 113 pound weight division, Dan Persson was third at 182, Nico DiStassio was fifth at 120, Kyle McGinnis came in sixth at 145 and Ray Weiner came in fourth at 195.
