A bit about MAU vs. Danbury:  Coach Legacy and Coach Shook (Danbury) have been friends for years.  Danbury is a perrenial CT powerhouse.   Legacy and Shook decided to dual their programs back in 2000 and for both programs, has been the match that each has wanted most to win.  I dubbed this "The Rivalry."

2014/2015  @ MAU

MAU leads the series 10-4        35-26 (ave. score)  

 

 

 

A bit about MAU vs. Springfield Central:  The Springfield Central dual is a bit newer (since 2006).  Springfield Central's coaching staff over the years has built that program to be one of the most consistantly strong withing New England's largest wrestling state, Massachusetts.   Springfield Central being a metro area public school and MAU being a regional rural VT school, it was fitting that I name this "The City vs. The Country."
