WILTON, Conn. Wilton sixth-grader Zach Zeyher took third place Sunday in the Middle Atlantic Wrestling Association District Tournament in Willimantic.
The Wilton wrestler competed in a seven-man bracket in the 95-pound intermediate weight class. He won his first match 4-0 against an opponent from Newtown.
Zeyher was pinned in the semifinals by the eventual champion from Central Valley, N.Y. He went on to pin both of his next two opponents from Silverback Wrestling Club in Connecticut and New England Elite Wrestling Club in Massachusetts.
The third-place finish advances Zach to the Eastern Regional Tournament in Bethlehem, Pa., on the weekend of April 14.
