1/11/06 - I've been alerted that Wildcat grappler Billy McLean did not finish in 4th place. Billy won his 1st two matches, before losing in the finals, to take 2nd Place in his division. Way to go Bill!!!!

20 of our kids entered the grueling Massapequa Tournament on Sunday. 10 placed in the TOP-4 in their divisions. After starting off the day by dropping our first 7 decisions, Wildcat kids roared back to go 27-20, finishing up the day at 27-27 (.500). This percentage is fantastic for a bunch of 1st and 2nd year kids!!! We're making strides and trust me....people in the kids' wrestling community know who we are now!

Dillon Hanel (3-0) and Christian Marini (3-1) each earned tournament championship gold medals.

Both Mike Marini (2-1) and Sean Richards (3-1) turned it up a notch and defeated opponents they had lost to previously, and earned 2nd and 3rd place honors, respectively. This shows that one can gain more experience and toughness IN ONE DAY!

Other Wildcat placewinners included: Nick D'Angelo, Nick LaGinestra and Charlie Forero (2nd place), and Sam Cusano and Bryan Dennis (4th place).

A special shout out to Mark Perrone. Mark won his 1st match of the season, and dropped a close one in the medal round. Watching Mark, one can see he PAYS ATTENTION IN PRACTICE and his hard work paid off, as his moves were "textbook." GOOD JOB MARK!
