Hudson Valley Challenge Results

Section 9 Has 12 Finalists…Booth, Milisci, and McGuire Win Titles

Rebounding after a disappointing showing at last year’s event, Section 9 Wrestling made a convincing statement at Sunday’s 2012 Hudson Valley Challenge held at Port Jervis High School.  A dozen Section 9 wrestlers made it to the finals and three locals were crowned champion of their weight class.

Dylan Booth of Port Jervis defeated Dylan Lynn of Tuxedo by a score of 10-2 at 113 in an all S9 final to earn his title.  Booth punched his ticket to the finals with a 9-1 major decision over Liam Mathis of Old Lyme, CT.  Lynn gained his finals birth by pinning Logan Losito of Wallkill in the semis.

Washingtonville senior Mark Milisci captured the 152 pound weight class with an impressive 4-2 victory over Jimmy Devine of Columbia.  Milisci was able to wrestle in the finals after defeating Tom Murphy from SIR wrestling in NJ by a 3-2 margin.

NFA junior Kyle McGuire pinned all three of his opponents en route to capturing the 195 pound title.  Two of McGuire’s victories came against fellow Section 9 wrestlers Elliot Marzano (Kingston) who finished second and Josh Conklin (Port Jervis) who placed fourth.

The other Section 9 wrestlers who made it to the finals were Chris Cuccolo (Pine Bush) 106, Justin Clavell (Washingtonville) 120, Ryan Ferro (Warwick) 132, Brett Johnson (Cornwall) 138, Austin Weigel (Onteora) 170, Randy Wilson (Port Jervis) 182, and Sam Weinger (Washingtonville) 220.  Congratulations to all of the wrestlers who competed in this year’s event and special thanks to The Friends of Section 9 for organizing the tournament.  Great job!
