Minisink and Port Jervis at the NYSPHSAA Dual Meet Championships
It was a historic weekend for NYS wrestling as we saw our first ever sanctioned dual meet championship tournament take place in Syracuse. Section 9 was very well represented in both D1 and D2. Minisink Valley won the Section 9 Duals a few weeks ago and they had an outstanding tournament in Syracuse finishing in 2nd place to Lond Island’s Wantagh by a score of 37-28. The Warriors dominated Lancaster and Horsehaeds in pools matches before defeating Rocky Point 47-26 in the semifinals. Port Jervis also represented S9 well! The Red Raiders went 1-1 in their pool with their win coming over one of the top D2 teams in NYS, Central Valley Academy from Section 3. Port lost to Tiaga who had previously lost to Central Valley Academy causing all 3 teams to finish 1-1 in the pool. Toaga advanced to the semis out of the pool due to tie-breaking criteria – most points scored. Great job both squads! Click below for all of the results from the tournament!
