Another season, another WNEISWA title for the Brunswick School wrestling team.

The Bruins captured their sixth straight Western New England Independent School Wrestling Association championship Saturday, topping 15 other teams in the 62nd annual tournament, held at Trinity-Pawling School.

Brunswick finished with a team score of 252.5 points, followed by runner-up Trinity-Pawling (185.5) and Greens Farms Academy (176.5).
