Pinning predicament: Tremain planning for his future

January 11, 2011

Newton-Conover wrestler Andrew Tremain is pinned to the ground.
He isn’t down on the mat, but rather it was his life off the mat that changed. Tremain, 19, was ruled ineligible to compete by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) on Oct. 15 because of his age.

Now, the defending state champion in the 285-pound weight class is trying to keep focused and look ahead to his future.

Tremain’s age issue was created when he was held back in kindergarten after moving to the area from New York. He also started late in school.
