    Cassada-Maple suffers season-ending injury at region wrestling tourney

    Josh Cassada-Maple's storied varsity wrestling career concluded one week early as the 170-pound senior from Loudoun Valley High School dislocated his shoulder in a first-round match against Liberty’s Rico Bumbrey at the Region II tournament Feb. 8 at John Champe High School in Aldie.

    “Josh extended his arm and it appeared to get caught in the mat," Valley coach Troy Mezzatesta said. “I heard Josh make a noise and then a loud yell. It’s a tough way to end a career that began in the third grade.”

    Cassada-Maple was visibly distraught as Mezzatesta consoled him before he left the gym to receive medical attention.

    Mezzatesta confirmed after returning with the team that Cassada-Maple had torn ligaments in his AC (acromioclavicular) joint.

    “Josh had a moment with his mom, who has supported her son through his career since he began wrestling,” Mezzatesta said. “It was a very emotional night for the team and Josh told me to tell the team to go out and kick some butt.”

    The Region II wrestling tournament continues Feb. 9 at John Champe.
