MONTAGUE — It’s hard to upstage an event like Whitehall’s victory for the seventh straight time at the GMAA wrestling meet, but a little bit of history can do the trick.
Tyler Stenberg, of Reeths-Puffer, created some history last Saturday by becoming only the fifth wrestler in the over 40-year history of the event to win four straight individual titles. He is the first Rocket to accomplish the feat. Stenberg joined Orchard View’s Daniel Spoolman, Orchard View’s Jimmie White, Orchard View’s David Cox and, most recently, Mona Shores’ Andrew Cribbs as the four-time champions.
Stenberg, R-P’s only individual champion Saturday, easily defeated Dakota Hoffman of Whitehall by major decision at 140 pounds to earn the historical achievement.
