(WGGB) — Dzhokar Tsarnaev — widely known as Suspect #2 — has a bizarre link to Western Mass athletics.

In the 2011 State Tournament, Tsarnaev wrestled against two student-athletes from Western Mass schools.  Tsarnaev defeated Minnechaug’s Cam Servantez, and then lost to West Springfield’s Shawn Le, in the Loser’s Bracket of the 135-lb. Weight Class.

Tsarnaev lost his first round match, against Alex Kwmuntis of St. John’s Prep, before being paired up with Servantez in the first round of the Loser’s Bracket.  After defeating Servantez, 10-0, Tsarnaev lost to Le, by pin, at 1:49.  The loss to Le ended Tsarnaev’s tournament.
