Athlete of the Week: Sky is the limit for Norwich's Garcia

By anyone’s standard, Norwich’s Frankie Garcia, who recently turned 14 years old, had a heck of week on the wrestling mat.

A much-heralded pee-wee wrestler, along with fellow seventh-grader Tristan Rifanburg, Garcia has lived up to expectations over the first six weeks of the 2009-2010 season.



In the span of three days a week ago, Garcia avenged his only defeat in beating the number two ranked Section IV, Division II wrestler at 103 pounds, then proceeded to beat Section III’s number one ranked Division II wrestler at 103 pounds, and in the championship match at the Leo J. Sammon Tournament in Ilion, beat Section III’s number one ranked Division I wrestler. Garcia was, not surprisingly, named the tournament’s most outstanding wrestler, and is our honoree today as Evening Sun/Smith Ford LLC Athlete of the Week.
