Washington and Lee’s second annual Montrossity Wrestling Invitational provided an excellent day of wrestling in Montross despite wintry weather and a uniquely disappointing visit from a solid wrestling squad by way of New Jersey. AAA power Brooke Point won the tournament, following in the footsteps of 2008 Montrossity champions and their Commonwealth District rival Mountain View.
Defending AAA state champions Colonial Forge sent a “B” team, which placed a close second and home standing W&L took the third spot.

First the chicken, then the goose egg
A game hen from Food Lion, decapitated and hanging in apparent effigy at Washington and Lee: $6.99. Canceling practice because of a nor’easter from Wednesday until Monday’s game and failing to adequately prepare for Colonial Beach’s unique single wing offense: $3.49 for Rolaids for Coach Malcolm Lewis’ heartburn. The Eagles beating the Drifters 41-0 despite it all in the regular season finale: priceless.
