    Noah Kramer gave a gutsy effort by pinning his opponent.

    The Northumberland wrestling team took the opening week of Christmas break to travel to Stuarts Draft for their annual tournament.  The Stuarts Draft Holiday Rumble is the biggest team tournament the Indian grapplers have ever participated in, with fifteen teams altogether.
