Our congratulations go out once again to the Highlander matmen, this time for their performances at the Locust Valley Invitational Tournament. It was another long day as one has come to expect from such events (6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. bus-to-bus), but loyal parents and team members keep each other’s spirits up from start to finish, and they were treated to fine performances.
The day began a bit after 9:00 a.m. While coaches Cliff Forziat and Mike Miller were involved in the varsity division seeding meeting, coaches Jake Phillips, Nick Castellano. Leo Kouroupos, and Eric Goldberg were guiding Highlander Second-Man fortunes in their exhibitions. Chris Woska, Jason Liarikos, Mark Holuka, Joe DeVito, Paul Tantillo, and John Vouzonis had two wins apiece. Both Brandon Temperino and Matt “Sticks” Esposito had pin victories.
Although the Herricks District cancelled the 21st Annual Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Second-Man Wrestling Festival, the team was able to host a last-minute replacement event on December 30th (perhaps the birth of an annual Auld Lang Syne Festival). Action was more limited, but grapplers from Wantagh, Chaminade, and Locust Valley joined our lads for a fine morning of spirited mat action in farewell to 2011.
Overall the Highlanders were 11-8 coming out ahead of Wantagh (20-5) and Chaminade (18-15), but bowing to Locust Valley (15-21). Sophomore Chris Woska was 3-0 with two pins and an overtime 12-10 decision. Fellow sophomore Jason Liarikos also had three wins, a pin, an 18-1 technical fall and a decision. Freshman John Vouzonis had two pins and a decision win for three victories of his own. Sophomores Brandon Temperino and Matt Grandelli added victories to the team’s totals.
The 40th Annual Herricks Invitational Wrestling Tournament kicked off the 2011-2012 Highlanders Wrestling competition schedule in style with 16 out of 19 Herricks grapplers winning place awards in a field that included Massapequa and Farmingdale from New York State Section VIII (Nassau County), Chaminade and Fordham Prep (CHSAA), Mahopac and Edgemont (Section I), and Newburgh Free Academy (Section IX). There was plenty of action for everyone with over 450 matches taking place on four mats.
In the Varsity A (Elite) Division three Highlanders took home first-place awards with outstanding performances on the mat. Senior Bill Rynne pinned all three of his opponents to finish on top in the 220 lb. weight class. Junior Andrew Farrell went 5-0 with four pin victories to earn his way into the Champion’s Circle at 120, and sophomore Matt Grandelli took first at 113 with three pins.
