Joseph Contrastano, a 1st year Wildcat grappler in Pre-K, entered his first career tournament this past Sunday (12/16/07) at Wantagh High School, and came away with the Championship in the 40 lb. Pee-Wee division. Joseph hit many double leg takedowns, and was very effective in riding his opponents, and breaking them down to the mat in his debut on the mat. Once Joe began sinking his half nelsons under his opponents' arms, he was unstoppable. The opposing coaches took notice as well. Joe really made a great name for himself at Wantagh. The coaches and all Joseph's family members were really proud of his hard work. Keep up the great work, Joseph!!!

Max Mosca (2nd year, 3rd grader) couldn't wait to wrestle at the Wantagh tournament. Although he was really happy for his brother, Shawn, who won the Championship the week before at Walt Whitman, Max was itching to bring home a Championship medal himself. Well, his hard work paid off as Max won two hard fought matches to claim the gold medal in the extremely competitive 65 lb. Midget division at Wantagh. In the finals, Max was up against an opponent from Seaford to whom he had LOST the previous week. He showed true determination, and produced a very exciting 4-3 victory for the gold, improving his record on the year to 3-1. Max showed that you never give up!!!

Congratulations to both Max and Joseph!!!
