The team competed this past Saturday in the League 6 tournament and had 7 wrestlers place and qualify for the Suffolk County Championships 2/14-2/15 @ Hofstra Univ.
All the SWR Wrestlers did a great job and showed a desire to win and compete at a high level.SWR had 6 wrestlers miss placing by 2 pts or less. The coaching staff and I were proud of the effort all the boys gave. Thanks to all the fans/families that made the journey out to East Hampton HS to support the team. The following wrestlers earned medals and will compete at the counties next weekend:
James Wood 3rd 138 lb
John Carl Petretti 3rd 126 lb
Kevin Meloni. champion 99 lb
Jack DelDuca champion 113 lb
Chris Meloni. Champion. 126 lb
James Szymanski Champion 132 lb
Jack Taddeo 145 lb Champion and League 6 Most Outstanding Wrestler Award Winner*
What a great way to finish up the season and begin the post-season . This team had to deal with adversity all season long and never had the full line up in place once. They finished 19-7 and had 5 League 6 Champions. I saw great improvement in all of our younger wrestlers as well.
