Phoenix Mid-Winter Classic
Goshen had 8 wrestlers place in the top 6 and finished 3rd in the team race at the Phoenix Mid-Winter Classic. Leading the way for the Gladiators were Max Winkler (189) and Dom Siracusa (285). Both wrestlers made it to the finals however both ran into some tough competition and needed to settle for silver. Winkler had the unfortunate task of wrestling Kole Mulhauser of Section 3 Central Square in the finals. Mulhauser, a Princeton commit, is currently ranked 8th in the nation by FloWrestling. Siracusa had to lock horns with Nick Rogers of Section 3 General Brown. Rogers, who is considered one of the favorites to win the 285 pound D2 state title in Albany, used a second period reversal to secure a 2-0 win over Siracusa. The other top-6 placers for Goshen were Joe Minnies (3rd @ 110), Jackson Brady (4th @ 138), Dante Joseph (5th @ 189), Declan Bernhardt (4th @ 215), Kyle Kubik (5th @ 215), and Aiden DeEntremont (3rd @ 285).

Schenectady Invitational
Minisink Valley only sent five wrestlers to the Schenectady Invitational – all five came home with first place trophies! Winning title for the Warriors were Eric Tigue at 152, Zack Ryder at 160, Mikey Altomer at 172, Andrew Filip at 189, and Ethan Gallo at 215. Gallo’s finals match was a highly anticipated showdown with Ryan Stein from Section 2 Shaker. Stein along with Gallo are considered two of the top 215-pound wrestlers in NYS D1. The bout did not live up to expectations as Gallo pinned his Section 2 foe in 1:39. Despite only entering five wrestlers in the tournament, the Warriors finished 3rd in the team race with 134 points. Burnt Hills (13 wrestlers) won the tournament with 166 points and Shenendehowa (10 wrestlers) placed 2nd with 152 points. Great job Minisink!
