Turanski hits 100 wins
And having it happen at home makes it all the sweeter. At a January 8 meet against Hermon and MDI at George Stevens Academy, senior Alex Turanski achieved a goal sought by all wrestlers—100 match wins. He won all three of his matches and achieved his personal goal for the season. Coach Jerome Lawther had predicted Turanski’s achievement as the season began, stating “Turanski is guaranteed his 100th win…he may even have the chance to earn that honor at home.” Alex Turanski’s name will now grace the gymnasium wall, one of only three GSA wrestlers who have reached the 100 match milestone.
