After dropping their wrestling program approximately 40 years ago, SUNY Ulster has decided to re-launch a NJCAA wrestling program which will begin this fall for the 2016-2017 season.  The university has decided to tap into its local resources and has hired Justin Signorelli as Head Wrestling Coach.  Signorelli is a graduate of Highland where he was a 3X Section 9 champion.  After high school, Signorelli enrolled into SUNY Cortland where he was a 4 year wrestler and 2 year captain for the Red Dragons earning a Bachelor’s degree in Communications. Signorelli will be assisted by Rich Parete and Phil Brown at SUNY Ulster.

The biggest challenge for any new wrestling program is recruitment.  Any student-athlete who is looking to continue their wrestling career after high school now has another great option right here in the Hudson Valley!  I am confident that SUNY Ulster can fill their wrestling room on local talent alone!  Anyone interested in learning more about the new wrestling program at SUNY Ulster should feel free to contact Coach Signorelli directly.  He can be reached at or 845.264.4581.

Congratulations and best of luck to Coach Signorelli and his staff!
