“I’ve never seen anything like this,” Foran High head wrestling coach Dave Esposito said after his Lions won the Class M state championship in Guilford High last Saturday. “It was one of the most amazing team efforts I have ever seen. We had one champion (Ryan Luth), yet won by fifty points over a team (Killingly) that was 32-1 and had five finalists. All 14 of our wrestlers scored points; 12 placed in the top six and are going to the State Open.”
Foran won its second state title (2016) with 236 points. Killingly had 190 and Guilford 140.
