Four Bruins won B.I.T. titles today: Enzo Vera (138 lb.), Alec Harned (144 lb.), Carlo Tucci (157 lb.), and Tomas Delgado (190 lb.) -- two freshmen and two seniors.
Vera was a finalist a year ago, but had to work hard in his semi-final match to get back there this year. Vera, the 2022 WNEISWA champion, was down 11-5 before pinning his opponent with only 29 seconds remaining in the final period, providing one of the highlights of the tournament. He earned a fourth pin on the day in the finals, bringing his record this year to 21-3 with two tournament wins.
Delgado (14-4) is now a multiple-time B.I.T. place-winner, unfortunately having to face his own classmate in the finals this year.
Tucci (17-2) won the Most Pins in the Least Time Award, one of two individual awards given annually at the tournament.
Harned (14-2) has now won his second tournament of the year.
Six other Bruins were also finalists: Silas Corveddu (106 lb.), Patrick O'Donahue (126 lb.), Michael Accetta (132 lb.), William MacGillivray (165 lb.), Emil Sogaard-Srikrishnan (175 lb.) and Vilas Sogaard-Srikrishnan (190 lb.). O'Donahue was a finalist in this tournament last year as a 9th grader. Corveddu is now a two-time B.I.T. finalist as he won last year. Accetta, MacGillivray, and Emil Sogaard-Srikrishnan are multiple time B.I.T. place-winners.
