The Leesburg-based Ranger Wrestling Club last week clinched its first-ever, overall team title at the Virginia club wrestling championships. 

The tournament, held at Meadow Park Event Center in Doswell, featured more 160 clubs from throughout the state. The Rangers, who entered 61 wrestlers, brought home championship banners for the U8 and U14 age brackets as well as being the overall boys club champions. With 36 medalists, the program also set a record for most team points scored in the history of the club state tournament.

The club, led by President and Head Coach Joel Caruso, was formed in 2008 as an off-season high school club. It converted to a youth club in 2013. Learn more at rangerwrestlingclub.com.
