Last spring, Mexico senior wrestling captain Trevor Allard became the first Mexico wrestler to win a New York State Championship. He won his 160 lb. Division II title bout in overtime, as an underdog, over Duanesburg's Connor Lawrence.
With a flair for the dramatic, Allard began his senior season in a similar way, winning his 182 lb. matchup over CBA/JD's Jonathan Kravec also in overtime.
Allard's been wrestling since he was six years old, competing on Mexico's varsity squad for six years, captaining the team the last three. His record is a startling 174-52, and is ranked 16th in the country by Flo Wrestling and 18th in the nation by the Associated Wrestling Press.
Off the mat, he's a member of the National Honor Society, Math Honor Society and recently named a NHSCA Academic All-American.
After his senior season, Allard says he wants to attend a university or college to be a Physician's Assistant, but wants to compete on the mat as well.
