SWC made the 7/8 hour (depending on the watch) to Canastota, NY for the annual NYS Club Freestyle Championships, hosted by Mohawk Valley Wrestling Club. SWC becomes the first Long Island team to compete in the 26th annual event.
SWC defeats Happy Yo WC, Genesee Valley WC & Mat Power WC by margins of more than 40 points.
SWC drops hotly contested battle to eventual champion, Finger Lakes Wrestling Club (Cornell U.) by a score of 34-29 or 8 matches to 7. (Too bad for Long Island prom season)
FLWC absorbed NYS club power, Shamrock and has several hundred members.
Another fun event attended by SWC. Great job, tough day of wrestling for all. Thanks to Coach A. and the LB duo.
Big wins by Siracusa (Sayville) at 130# over Dake and Paddock, both all state this year. Mark R. (Long Beach) had a huge victory over Krohl, NYS D2 Champ.
Although it was a close 3 period loss, the best match of the tournament was Kogel v. Sutton (NYS D1 Champ). Did Kogel get the 2 point gut at the buzzer?
If only we had team Gator Roll and the boys from out east!
