 Seven teams compete at the third annual Nick Mason Memorial Wrestling Tournament

The third annual Nick Mason Memorial Wrestling Tournament was hosted by King George High School on Saturday, January 10.  This year’s tournament was expanded to seven teams including King George High School, Potomac High School, North Stafford High School, Fairfax High School, Lancaster High School, Stafford High School, and Eastern View High School.  The yearly tournament honors Nick Mason, a former King George student and wrestler, who was killed in action in Mosul, Iraq, in December of 2004.  Nick’s parents, Vic and Christine Mason, presented the awards to all tournament winners and Mrs. Mason gave the tournament’s opening heartfelt welcome asking the wrestlers and attendees to “Remember the troops who fight for your freedom,” and to “Do everything you can to support the troops.”

“We are eternally grateful of the continued support of the community and the commitment to keep Nick’s memory alive through these memorial events.  We are proud that the proceeds will benefit the Virginia Army National Guard, Nick’s Memorial Scholarship, and the King George Wrestling team,” said Mrs. Mason.

“The Mason family would like to thank the teams, coaches, wrestlers, and their families for participating in and attending the event.  We would also like to extend our appreciation to the businesses and individuals who made the event a success through sponsorships, donated items, concessions, and their time and volunteerism.”  In addition to the Masons, Northrup Grumman, TSC, Perry & Cathy Bowen-River Farm, ANA Instruments, King George House of Pizza, Daily Grind, and WaWa co-sponsored the tournament.  Gift cards were donated by Daily Grind, JC Penney, WaWa, J Brians Tap Room, Panache, and King George Chiropractic, which were raffled off to raffle ticket purchasers.

Two mats provided wrestling action all day with individual and team scoring competitions.  Two King George wrestlers, Jason Norris (140) and Ian Lynett (125), went undefeated, taking the 1st place medals.  Norris’ thrilling championship match against Stafford’s Mike Lowery went to three overtimes before Norris was able to claim the victory.  Earlier this season, Lowery had defeated Norris by just one point.  In the second overtime, Norris sustained an injury, but that didn’t take him down.  “My family is close with the Masons, and I wanted to win it for them,” Norris said.  
Fairfax earned the first place team trophy with 192 points, while Stafford walked away with the second place trophy, scoring 160 points.  King George came in third with 126 points, Eastern View was fourth scoring 105 points, Potomac fifth with 68 points, Lancaster sixth with 63 points, and seventh place went to last year’s champion, North Stafford with 61.50 points.  MVP trophy winners were:  Cory Apps, Fairfax, Lower Weights; Sam Frere, Lancaster, Middle Weights; Jordon Yost, Fairfax, Upper Weights.

Individually, nine of thirteen King George wrestlers who participated in the tournament placed, as follows:  Jason Ames (103) 2nd, Vincent Eells (112) 3rd, Ian Lynett (125) 1st, Phil Hinkes (130) 3rd, Jason Norris (140) 1st, Dan Stevens (145) 3rd, Matt Giles (189) 4th, Bryan Horaist (215) 4th, and Neil Schultz (285) 2nd.

Congratulations to all of the wrestlers who participated in the Third Annual Nick Mason Memorial Wrestling Tournament.  The King George Foxes Wrestling team’s next action will be on Saturday, January 17, at Freedom at 10:00 a.m.  Go Foxes! And here’s to your memory, Nick…
