RICHARDS IS ROCKY POINT / RAZOR SHARP

Posted Monday, November 26, 2007 by Ken Richards

The 1st Annual Rocky Point / Razor Wrestling Club Youth tournament was held this past Sunday (November 25th). This high-level event for experienced wrestlers was billed as an early season "wake-up" for the season ahead.

Due to the holiday weekend and the long journey to Rocky Point High school, only 6 Wildcats were able to sign-up. From that 6, only 3 were able to compete, as the flu bug hit the 3 others (Nick Matteo, Max Mosca and Ben Freund).

The 3 stalwarts who were able to make the trip had a tremendous learning experience, going against some of Long Island's top kid wrestlers.

Shawn Mosca made the trip and wrestled 4 very tough matches, and gained a whole bunch of mat time and experience. 5th grader, Nick D'Angelo won his 1st match of the tournament before falling in the finals to an extremely talented Garden City wrestler. Finally, Sean Richards (6th grade) went 4-0 in claiming the Championship at 100 lbs. in the 5th & 6th grade division.

Contratulations to all 3 boys for making the trip worthwhile. A special thanks to Coaches Mosca and Burkey too!!!

The next tourament is Sunday, December 9th @ Walt Whitman HS in South Huntington. This is for ALL our wrestlers (beginners too!!!)
