Friday, 01 February 2013 00:00

Mathew Long, a senior student-athlete at Mineola High School, won his 100th varsity match on Jan. 12. One hundred wins is a rare feat for someone in a small-school Division II team who averages only 36 matches per season. He also has a chance of beating the current 15-year school record of 116 varsity wrestling wins. 

In addition to serving as captain of the varsity wrestling team for the last two years, Long was named All-Conference in 2009, county champion in 2011 and 2012, and MVP of all the Division II teams in 2012. If he completes the current season as county champion for 2013, Long will then hold the school record for most consecutive county wins in wrestling, as well.
