WILDCAT KIDS @ TWO LOCATIONS SUNDAY

Posted Monday, January 15, 2007 by Ken Richards

WILDCAT GRAPPLERS IN NASSAU AND SUFFOLK ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 14th

7th & 8th GRADERS
Our Junior High Wildcats saw their first action of the season this Sunday at the super-highly competitive Long Island Youth Wrestling League's North Shore Duals. Trust me, this event provided competition AT OR ABOVE the level the kids will see during their Junior High seasons. Coaches Manfredi and Dombrowski both said it was a great learning experience, as the competition was extreme. It also provided a "wake-up" call to our Junior High kids that it's time to "get busy" at practice and pick up the focus and intensity!!!

1st - 6th GRADERS
Fifteen Wildcat kids traveled to the East Islip Takedown tournament. Although quite chaotic, my best guess as to the results are as follows (please email me if I'm wrong):

Top Finshers:
Christian Marini (4-1)
Anthony Cerrone (3-1)
Sean Richards (2-1)
Mike Marini (1-0-1) didn't count match w/ Nick L.

Other highlights: Dex Iannone and Dylan Laube recorded their first victories of the season. Matt Esposito showed improvement in each of his matches, dropping a heartbreaker in overtime in his final match of the day. Shawn and Max Mosca, and Michael Loiacono shot millions of takedowns in their action-packed matches. Kevin Vecchione also shined in his first tournament ever, recording his 1st career win, while looking like a professional. Excellent job guys!

Overall....good job. HOWEVER, AS A TEAM.....WE NEED TO SHOOT MUCH MORE. WE PUSH THE ACTION.
