Congratulations to Minisink Valley’s Josh Bonneau for being only the second ever Section 9 wrestler selected to participate in the Pinning Down Autism All-Star Festival which takes place this weekend at West Orange HS in West Orange, NJ.  The event, now in its third year, has grown each year and is now a 3-day festival which features All-Star Dual Meets between team representing New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Michigan, and New England.        Event Flyer
