“Wrestling came into my life while I was just a freshman at the Abbey. I loved it: the adrenaline, tough work, and most of all, the camaraderie. Being a part of Abbey wrestling and serving as a captain of the team was an honor, and my Abbey career would not have been the same without it.”
I compete in any sport I play, wrestling was my second sport I was top 17 in the nation, it taught me to dig deep and be the best I can, I love lacrosse and will continue to bring it all to the field!
Abbey Wrestling gave me so much…It taught me everything about self-control and discipline, patience and sportsmanship. While it is technically an individual sport, I was never on the mat alone.
A four-year star that played a major role in Portsmouth Abbey winning its second consecutive EIL championship. Henery was ranked in the top 16 in the prep nationals with 3 consecutive All-Conference selections.
With the right blend of energy and determination, you can take your wrestling skills to places you never though possible.
I now play lacrosse at Salve Regina University, as a Middle, I attack the field with the Wrestling Mind set that Coach Mike taught me.
The experience that I had at the Abbey were amazing. I came with minimum skills, but felt nothing like it. Thank you for the fun practices guys!”
I wrestled over my weight and made the best of every match and ended up qualifying for Nationals.
