WILDCAT KIDS SURVIVE TOUGH OCEANSIDE TOURNEY

Posted Monday, January 29, 2007 by Ken Richards

WILDCATS DIAL IT UP IN PREP FOR COUNTY TOURNAMENT

With the Nassau County NYS Qualifying Tournament on the horizon for next week, Wildcat wrestlers geared up in the extremely competitive Oceanside tournament. Our kids were right in the mix and posted a respectable 23-28 (.451) record on the day, with 3 of 25 wrestlers winning their divisions.

CHAMPIONS
It was just another day at the office for Wildcats' Ben Freund, Dillon Hanel and Nick Loiacono. Each posted a 2-0 mark at Oceanside, winning their respective brackets. All three won the second consecutive tournament in which they have wrestled. The question is....Who can beat Ben Freund? Ben is undefeated (4-0) in his rookie season. Congrats to Ben, Dillon and Nick.

2nd Place Finishers - included Craig Mazzeo, Mark Perrone, Mikie Baltzer, Nick D'Angelo (who dropped a heartbreaker in OT in the Finals!), Nick Matteo and Sam Cusano.

All the Wildcats wrestled hard, gaining valuable experience and showing improvement.

Remember.....virtually all our kids are 1st and 2nd year wrestlers, many times pitted against much more experiences foes. We're getting there. Right now, we're at a 47% winning percentage in open tournament competition as a team.
