On April 3, Nassau County’s All County wrestlers gathered for their end-of-the-year dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Unlike other sports, no coaches voted for these athletes to receive their awards. These were earned competing head to head at the county wrestling tournament held at Hofstra in February. Only the top six wrestlers in each weight class earn All Nassau County status.
For the second year in a row, North Shore’s Dan Grabher earned this recognition. Grabher, a junior, finished fourth place at the 160-pound weight class. Last year as a sophomore he also took fourth place at the 135-pound weight class. He finishes the season with a 37 and 4 record and becomes one of only a handful of North Shore wrestlers to grab two All County belts.
With 130 career wins and his senior year still ahead, he is looking to shatter the school’s most career wins record, which is currently held by his older brother, Robert, at 135.
