4 WILDCAT WRESTLERS SHARE TOP HONORS THIS WEEK

CHARLIE FORERO (5th Grade) - the 1st year wrestler has arrived. Charlie went 3-0 at the Bethpage Tournament to win the Championship. In his semi-final match, Charlie was down by 1 point with 10 seconds to go. He needed to get out to force Overtime. Instead, Charlie reversed his opponent and put him directly to his back to secure the victory in exciting fashion. Charlie has been PAYING ATTENTION in practice and working hard. His effort was seen as Charlie hit some textbook Double Legs and Sprawls. These are the things that are putting him over the top! Congratulations, Charlie.

NICK MATTEO (1st Grade) - has been coming on strong lately. Nick started his 1st year a bit late this year, but has been showing more promise with each week. After an early morning defeat against a much more experienced wrestler, Nick bounced back to win his next 2 matches to claim 2nd Place at Bethpage, upping his record to 5-2. Keep working, Nick!

SEAN RICHARDS (5th Grade) - also came back strong after an early defeat. Sean, in his 2nd year, won his next 2 matches to claim 2nd Place at Bethpage. Sean improved his Top Starting position, his Tight Waist/Far Ankle, and also threw in an impressive CrossFace Cradle, all of which helped raise his record to 12-9 on the year. Nice Work!

MICHAEL LOIACONO (2nd Grade) - provided top-notch entertainment with his non-stop, action packed matches. Iron Mike won his first 2 matches of the day handily. In the final, Mike and his opponent had the whole gym watching them as the only match going. Mike wrestled like a warrior, but came up just short of the Gold in a great match that everyone appreciated. Excellent job, Michael!
