Every year the top teams on Long Island get together in late December to do battle for the Long Island Dual meet crown. Sayville will be making their 5th straight appearance in the tournament. The event is sponsored by "Friends of Long Island Wrestling" and will be held at MacArthur, HS in Nassau County on 12/29, starting at 9 AM.
The tournament is typically covered by Channel 12 News; Newsday; LIWA (www.longislandwrestling.com
) & Lighthouse Wrestling (www.lighthousewrestling.com
) along with a packed gym of spectators.
Last year Sayville dropped an opening round loss to eventual champion, John Glenn. The Flashes defeated Garden City & Farmingdale in the later rounds but a loss to Brentwood dashed any hopes for a top 3 finish.
This year, Sayville looks to be in the hunt for the crown.
