Camper helps boost Copenhagen to 7th place in state wrestling
COPENHAGEN, New York (WWNY) - Chase Nevills of Copenhagen was the big winner this past weekend in Albany, winning a state title in wrestling at 118 pounds.
Besides Nevills’ title, there was another Copenhagen wrestler who came home after a successful weekend.
Tavian Camper finished third at 145 pounds. His third-place finish helped Copenhagen finish seventh overall as a team in Division II at the tournament.
Like Nevills, Camper is just a junior.
“Well, I came up short my second match the first day, so I really had to wrestle back the second day and that’s exactly what I did,” Camper said.
“Having two kids in the state tournament and finishing seventh out of all the Division II schools is pretty cool,” he said. “Shows how hard we worked.”
