In a tough 12 team field of Section2 and some out of state competition, the Pirates had strong performaces across theboard at the two day Cohoes Tiger Duals. Host Cohoes High School (looks like a college-very impressive) put on a great dual meet tourney. Our grapplers went 75-45 on the weekend, winning 6 of 8 dual meets, winning third place in the team competition. Champion Deposit Handcock handed the Pirates 46-30 loss, while we tied runner up Saratoga 36-36 our boys lost by criteria (8 wins to 7).
Muldoon 8-0, Kelly 8-0 and Simetti went 7-0 on the weekend. Congrats James on winning MOW for the Pirates! Gullo finished 7-1, while 2XL David Avery and Bryan Kondracki both had strong weekends finishing 6-2 ea, along with Jake Kurzhals. Mike Zimnoch look great with 4 wins before a fracture in his finger (get better soon Mike!) The Young Guns 7th Graders, Dylan Urban and Jack Chesman both went an impressive 5-3 ea. Sean McGarvey aka Triple Threat wrestling up a weight class finished 5-3 against some much larger competition. Ortega, Maltifano, and Arnold continue improving and came up with some solid victories for the Pirates.
