The Wilton Youth Wrestling team sent seven wrestlers up to Southington on Dec. 10 for the opening tournament of the season — and let the rest of the state know that the Warrior program is building a foundation to be a future powerhouse.

All seven Wilton wrestlers earned medals with top-three finishes.

Jack Santosky (3-0) and Cooper Matik (2-0) both won their weight brackets to take home gold medals, while silver medals were won by Trevien Goldman (3-1), Grant Santosky (2-1) and Tom Martin (2-1). Mason Behar (1-2) and Alex Sinot (0-2) both placed third to take the bronze.
