While Nick Rende may not have reached the Class L championship match for the second year in a row last weekend, he did achieve another major milestone for the Wilton High wrestling program. The junior standout notched his 100th career win when he defeated Zachary Taylor of Fairfield Ludlowe, 10-5, in the quarterfinals \u2014 the first Warrior to reach that mark since Andrew Lattimer in 2009. \u201c(Lattimer) is the only one I know of. He did it in four years,\u201d said head coach John Foldeak of the 100-win mark. \u201cThat Nick did it in three years is a huge accomplishment.\u201d Rende, who finished third at the Class L tournament at 126 pounds, also qualified for the State Open for the third straight year \u2014 possibly the first Wilton wrestler to do so. \u201cI thought Nick wrestled very well. A lot of coaches would say it\u2019s one of the toughest if not the toughest weight class in the state \u2014 a lot of hammers,\u201d said Foldeak. He goes into the State Open with a record of 32-5 \u2014 and 102 career wins. \u201cIt\u2019s special,\u201d Foldeak said of Rende\u2019s achievement. \u201cYou just expect Nick to win and sometimes you overlook how good he is and how he does it with such poise and ease.\u201d With a top-five finish at the State Open, Rende \u2014 or teammates Zach Zeyher, Travis Longo and Finn McGovern \u2014 can do something no Wilton wrestler has done since 1994: qualify for New Englands.
