Farmingdale Tackles Wrestling Tourney

Written by Daniel Offner Thursday, 16 January 2014 00:00

The Farmingdale High School wrestling squad grappled its way into the top 5 at the Ted Petersen Tournament in Island Trees on Jan. 4, scoring a total of 140 points —  beating out students from the neighboring Bethpage School District by just three points. 

 

Widely regarded as one of the toughest wrestling tournaments on Long Island, the annual Ted Petersen Wrestling Tournament pits some of the roughest and toughest wrestlers from Nassau and Suffolk counties against each other for a chance at taking home the gold. Although placing within the top 5 of the tournament is considered an outstanding accomplishment, finishing in first is considered one of the highest honors in the Long Island wrestling world. 

 

Despite a bout of cold and snowy weather, wrestlers from across two counties put on their singlets and grappling shorts to compete against top wrestling talents from Amityville, Bethpage, Farmingdale (ranked No. 5 in Nassau County), Freeport, Huntington,

Hempstead, Lincoln Rhode Island, Massapequa (ranked No. 3 in Nassau), Mepham, Plainedge (ranked No. 2 in Nassau), and Uniondale.
