NEWPORT — NCUHS freshman wrestler Eoin Comes clinched second place in the 113-pound category at the Vermont Wrestling State Championships, held at Otter Valley High School on Saturday.

Comes, demonstrating remarkable skill and determination, started his journey to the finals by overpowering his first opponent, Anthony Abetti from Burr and Burton Academy (BBA), with a decisive pin during the Quarter-Finals round.

His winning streak continued in the Semi-Finals where he faced off against the No. 2 seed, Noah Markwell from Springfield (SPR). Comes emerged victorious by decision, earning his spot in the Championship Round.
