Danbury’s Jack wins wrestling tournament

The high school wrestling season is still more than a month away, but Danbury High School junior Ryan Jack is already in championship form.

Wrestling out of Empire Wrestling Academy in Somers, N.Y., Jack won the 125-pound championship at the Journeymen Fall Classic tournament, held last weekend at the Union College Memorial Fieldhouse in Schenectady, N.Y., and he beat some high-ranking opponents to do so.

“I knew it was going to be a hard tournament,” said Jack, the reigning New England champion at 120 pounds and a two-time high school All-American. “I had to prepare well and work on the things I needed to work on.”
