The wrestling Hawks made their way to J-Town last night to take on Coventry, Toll Gate, and Johnston in consecutive matches. The most interesting aspect of the combined meet was that their first opponent of the night, Coventry, has widely been viewed as a contender for this year's state title; as a result, the Hawks came ready to do battle with a tough Coventry squad in what would most likely be their toughest match yet this season.
By the end of the match, the defending state champions had delivered a clear message to the Oakers, dropping only one of the fourteen contests and rolling to a 72-3 win. The Hawks finished off the meet by dropping Toll Gate and Johnston, 67-3 and 67-12, respectively.
The wrestlers are in action next on Saturday, when they travel to Concord, New Hampshire for the Capitol City Classic, and then again on Wednesday, when they'll be at home to take on the North Kingstown Skippers.
