Weekend Results for S9 College Wrestlers

Raccioppi Defeats Fellow Minisink Grad Aeberli; Wins Doug Parker 
East Stroudsburg junior Michael Raccioppi won his second tournament in as many weeks by taking home the 174 pound title at the Doug Parker Tournament in Springfield, MA.  In the semifinal round, Raccioppi had to take on another Minisink Valley graduate when he squared off with former NYS champion AJ Aeberli. Raccioppi won by a 8-2 decision and then won the title via forfeit over ESU teammate Richard Viruet.  Aeberli, a sophomore at the Coast Guard Academy, went on to finish 3rd by defeating a former NJ state champion Alec Donovan in his medal match!  Great job Warriors!!!

Saugerties graduate James Bethel

Bethel Champion at NYS Intercollegiate Championships
Congratulations to Oneonta senior James Bethel for winning the 285 title at the NYS Intercollegiate Championships on Sunday in Ithaca, NY.  Bethel, a Saugerties grad, is the first state champion in SUNY Oneonta’s history!  Bethel won his first 3 matches with pins in 47, 19, and 15 seconds before winning 3-0 in the semis and picking off Jake O’Brein 5-0 in the finals.  SUNY Sullivan was also at the tournament and their 184 pounder Jhavon Innocent became the General’s first ever NYS Collegiate place winner! Army wrestling and their prep program, USMAPS, were also in Ithaca and fared quite well! USMAPS won the team title narrowly edging Ithaca College and they crowned a champion at 133 pounds in Andrew Wert. Jeremiah Imonode who wrestles for Army was the champ at 197 where RIT senior and Washingtonville grad Samuel Weinger placed 8th. SUNY Ulster and the aforementioned SUNY Sullivan had many  local wrestlers at the tournament as well as several other Section 9 alum including Johnny Stramiello (Ithaca), Anthony Stramiello (Ithaca), and Ian Houck (RIT).

Barczak a Finalist vs Nolf at Keystone Classic
Monroe Woodbury graduate Evan Barczak, a senior 157 pounder for Division 1 Drexel, made it all the way to the finals at the Keystone Classic before falling to defending national champion Jason Nolf from Penn State!  Barczak picked off the #3 finisher at last year’s EIWA’s in the semis when he downed Hunter Ladnier 6-5.  Minisisnk Valley’s Gerard Daly went 2-2 at 141 wrestling for Sacred Heart and former MV teammate and current Sacred Heart 149 pounder Mason Rambarose went 0-2 on the day.

Noah Curreri Takes 2nd a Wolfpack Open
Eldred graduate Noah Curreri, who wrestles for DII Queens College of Charlotte took 2nd place facing DI competition at the Wolfpack Open on Sunday!  Great job Noah!!

Black Knight Invite
Host Army crowned 3 individual champions and took 2nd place in the team race at the Black Knight Invite on Sunday. Trey Chalifoux was the champ at 125 while Ben Harvey took home gold at 174.  197 pounder Alex Hopkins also finished atop the podium for West Point!  The Black Knights also had 2 other finalists and 12 other top-6 place winners! Great job guys!

Section 9 Individual Rankings – Preseason

Well with the first matches a little more than a week away, it’s time to break out the rankings!  Preseason rankings are obviously the most difficult rankings to assemble. Weight class certifications are not even done yet and not a single match has been wrestled so yes, there is a lot of guess work here.  We realize that many of the wrestler listed below will move weight classes throughout the year. Please keep in mind that rankings are just for fun.  They have absolutely no impact on where a wrestler would be seeded at a tournament. Ranking are just an opinion…they are designed to create some conversation and buzz about the sport we love.  My apologies in advance if there are any glaring omissions.  Comments and feedback are welcomed at sectionixwrestling@gmail.com.

99 Pounds – not yet

106 Pounds
1. Colby Amell (Saugerties, 12)
2. Zack Ryder (Minisink Valley, 7)
3. Andrew Marchese (Washingtonville, 9)
4. Joey Curreri (Eldred, 10)
5. Matt Davis (Wallkill, 10)
After taking a year off due to injury, Saugerties senior Colby Amell is back and he gets the nod at 106. Amell was the 99 pound Section 9 champion two seasons ago. Minisink Valley 7th grader Zack Ryder has been a youth wrestling phenom for years and enters the rankings at #2 at 106. Marchese, Curreri, and Davis allplaced in Sections last year and will be in the hunt. A few others to watch are Richie Toledo from Monroe Woodbury, Alex Greco from Warwick, and Casey Lennon from Valley Central.

113 Pounds
1. Justin Morales (Middletown, 11)
2. Nikko Walsh (Rondout Valley, 10)
3. Jacob Chenier (Kingston, 11)
4. Matt Morris (Red Hook, 11)
5. Andrew Filip (Minisink Valley, 8)
Morales was the D1 99 pound Section 9 champ last season and starts the season on top of the rankings at 113 pounds. 2X D2 Section 9 champ Nikko Walsh is right behind Morales in the 2 spot followed by Chenier who looked sharp at the Hudson Valley Challenge. Morris from Red Hook is at #4 followed by MV 8th grader Filip who placed 3rd in S9 at 99 last season.

120 Pounds
1. Marco Vespa (Monroe Woodbury, 12)
2. Eric Tigue (Port Jervis, 9)
3. Nick Picariello (Minisink Valley, 11)
4. Ryan Burgos (Monroe Woodbury, 12)
5. Drew Greco (Warwick, 10)
Vespa placed 4th in NYS in 2017 and 3rd in NYS at this weight last season. Marco has his sights set on the top step of the podium in Albany this season.  Tigue was one win away from placing last year at D2 states and Picariello was a Sectional finalist last year losing a razor close decision to Greg Fischer, a state placer! Burgos is very talented and will have a good year as will Greco from Warwick. Let’s also keep an eye on Moises Diaz from Middletown.

126 Pounds
1. Pat Ross (Onteora, 10)
2. Jordan Suarez (Minisink Valley, 11)
3. Tommy Maddox (Washingtonville, 12)
4. Brandon DeLaRosa (NFA, 12)
5. Kevin Urena (Pine Bush, 12)
Ross has been to Albany before and looked very sharp at the Hudson Valley Challenge so he get the nod at #1 for 126.  The next 3 could have gone in any order. Suarez is a 2X S9 finalist losing in the finals last year to Dylan Earl who finished 5th in the state. Maddox placed 3rd at this weight last season and has had a good off season and DeLaRosa is very dangerous!  Urena is back in Pine Bush after being in PA for the past year and should contend here! Marlboro’s John Antonelli gets better every year and will also be in the hunt!!

132 Pounds
1. James Faison (Wallkill, 11)
2. Matt Romano (Valley Central, 11)
3. Sean Savacool (Minisink Valley, 11)
4. Nick Ross (Onteora, 10)
5. Luke Fischer (NFA, 11)

This weight was a tough one to rank.  Romano is the defending S9 champ and he picked up a win in Albany last year but Faison had a head-to-head win over Romano last year and was the #1 seed going into Sections in February where he had to injury default to 6th place. Savacool lost an exciting match to Romano in the S9 finals and comes in at #3 followed by former S9 D2 champ Nick Ross at #4. Fischer is very solid and will have a good season and let’s keep an eye on New Paltz’s Aiden Cuppett,  Middletown’s Josh Sam and Saugerties’ Gage Belnap who is a transfer from Arizona.

138 Pounds
1. Ethan Palanca (New Paltz, 10)
2. Nick Albornoz (Minisink Valley, 12)
3. James Heinlein (Saugerties, 12)
4. Rob Estevez (Monroe Woodbury, 12)
5. Noah Warneke (Kingston, 11)
With New Paltz moving to D1, the already congested middle weights just became even tougher with defending S9 D2 champ Ethan Palanca jumping into the mix. Albornoz from MV was a S9 finalist last season and Heinlein from Saugerties placed 3rd at 132 last season. Estevez is very talented and Warneke was a S9 placer last year as well.

145 Pounds
1. Tommy Askey (Pine Bush, 11)
2. Joe McGinty (Monroe Woodbury, 11)
3. Mat Malherio (Highland, 12)
4. Nick Curreri (Eldred, 12)
5. Robert Giumarra (Cornwall, 12)
Askey vs. McGinty would be one of the most anticipated matches of the season – let’s hope we get to see it! Malherio has been to Albany twice and is looking to place this year but he may need to get through Curreri. Both D1 and D2 S9 finals could be great matches! Giumarra is tough and will definitely contend here and we should also keep an eye on Costello from Saugerties who is back after a year off.

152 Pounds
1. Nate Ross (Onteora, 11)
2. Nick Florin (Pine Bush, 12)
3. Destin Morano (Middletown, 12)
4. Dan Heffner (Cornwall, 12)
5. Ethan Gallo (Minisink Valley, 8)
Ross has made the trip to Albany and is looking for a spot on the medal stand this year…he gets the nod at #1 for 152. Florin is very tough and is definitely going to contend here as will Morano from Middletown and Heffner from Cornwall. We should also keep an eye on Minisink Valley 8th grader Ethan Gallo who is looking very solid.

160 Pounds
1. William Harrison (Port Jervis, 12)
2. Steve Gazzillo (Cornwall, 12)
3. Luke Jones (Eldred, 11)
4. Joe Velazquez (Middletown, 11)
5. Max Wernicki (Monroe Woodbury, 11)
Harrison has been to the state tournament and is focused on placing in Albany this year! Gazzillo is jumping up a few weights but he’s tough and should adjust well. Jones, Velazquez, and Wernicki all have the ability to win their weight class this year! Expect to see a lot of movement this year throughout the middleweights which will make the S9 tournaments in February very interesting!

170 Pounds
1. Matt Bucci (Saugerties, 12)
2. Pasquale Satriano (Valley Central, 12)
3. Connor Leggett (NFA, 12)
4. Lucas Pennell (Pine Bush, 12)
5. Chris McLaughlin (Minisink Valley, 11)
Bucci is tough, talented and well-coached! He could have a break-out year so he’s getting the preseason nod at #1 for 170 pounds. Satriano is back from an injury and looked great at the Hudson Valley Challenge. Leggett and Pennell will definitely contend here and JV champ McLaughlin should have a nice season for Minisink.

182 Pounds
1. Tyler Serafini (NFA, 12)
2. Graeme Knissel (Saugerties, 11)
3. Will Noteboom (Warwick, 12)
4. Colin Cassidy (Cornwall, 12)
5. Mike Paravati (Monroe Woodbury, 12)
Serafini was the Section 9 D1 champ at 152 and he’s definitely the favorite to return to Albany at whatever weight he goes!  Knissel is very dangerous and will contend here as will Noteboom, Cassidy, and Monroe’s Paravati. If Serafini goes down to 170, 182 can be a very open weight class!

195 Pounds
1. Sam Santander (Monroe Woodbury, 12)
2. Anthony Owen (Saugerties, 12)
3. Elijah Babb (Middletown, 12)
4. Josh Keller (Cornwall, 12)
5. Luke Wojehowski (Cornwall, 12)
Santander is the returning champ and this weight so he will grab the #1 spot in the preseason rankings but he will definitely be tested!  Owen from Saugerties is extremely tough and Babb from Middletown has put in some solid off season work.  Cornwall has a great problem with Keller, Wojehowski and Cassidy all at the 182/195 range! Kingston’s Hayden Barley is returning to the mat this year and will also be at 195!

220 Pounds
1. Will Leonard (Cornwall, 12)
2. Maxx DeCapua (NFA, 11)
3. Mark Crisfield (Valley Central, 12)
4. David Strauss (Monroe Woodbury, 12)
5. Devin Dixon (New Paltz, 12)
The 220 pound weight class features two wrestlers, Leonard and DeCapua, who placed in the NYS last year!  If both wrestlers stay at 220 this could be the marquee match of the S9 tournament! Crisfield was a finalist last year at 220 and Strauss was having a great season which was cut short by injury. Dixon was the D2 champ and is hoping to make a return trip to Albany! Craig Laurey from Saugerties is very solid and should not be over-looked here!

285 Pounds
1. Preston Havison (Monroe Woodbury, 12)
2. Caleb Williams (NFA, 12)
3. Adam Fenner (Minisink Valley, 10)
4. James Oosterom (Port Jervis, 11)
5. Bryce Moore (Valley Central, 12)
Havison was a Section 9 finalist at this weight last season and gets the nod for the top spot here in our preseason rankings. Williams and Moore are both proven heavyweights but they may have their hands full with the smaller but very athletic Adam Fenner whose brother Andrew was the champ here last year. Oosterom may be the top guy in D2 with the departure of Liam Dietrich who transferred out of Red Hook. Dietrich placed 5th in NYS last season.

Black Knight Invite Is This Sunday at West Point

Raccioppi Tops D1 Competition to Win ESU Open Crown
Congratulations to Minisink Valley graduate Michael Raccioppi for winning the 174 pound title at the East Stroudsburg Open on Saturday. Raccioppi, who wrestles for Division 2 East Stroudsburg, took the top step of the medal stand in a weight class where every other place winner was a Division 1 wrestler! He majored Collin Shannon from American 17-7 and Luke Drugac of Old Dominion 20-8 before pinning Bucknell’s Frank Guida in :53 in the quarters. Raccioppi then defeated Rider’s George Walton 9-4 in the semis before receiving a medical forfeit over Dean Sherry from Rider in the finals.  Great job Michael!!!

Burns Champ at RWU Invitational
NFA graduate Da’mani Burns pinned his way into the finals then notched a 7-3 victory over Messiah’s Steven Maloney to win the title at 149 pounds at the Roger Williams Invitational.  Burns is a freshman for Johnson & Wales who are currently ranked #3 in the nation in Division 3!  Way to go Da’mani!!!

Barczak and Daly Notch Wins at Journeymen Duals
Section 9 was well represented at Saturday’s Journeymen Northeast Collegiate Duals in Troy, NY!  Monroe Woodbury grad Evan Barczak, who wrestles at 157 for Drexel, went 2-1 on the day.  He defeated Rian Burris of Citadel 8-2 and topped Austin Nash of Purdue 8-2.  Barczak’s only loss was a 12-2 decision to Nebraska’s Tyler Berger who is a returning All-American and is currently ranked #5 in the nation!  Minisink Valley graduate Gerard Daly is the starting 141 pound wrestler for Sacred Heart.  Daly went 2-0 for the day recording a :59 pin over Citadel’s Ethan Phillips and an injury default over Aaron Coleman from Bloomsburg (Daly was winning by 13 points at the time of the injury). Also of note, former Minisink Valley wrestler Mason Rambarose wrestles at 149 pounds for Sacred Heart. After taking a year off, Rambarose has decided to return to the mat.  Mason wrestled one match on Saturday dropping a hard-fought 5-4 decision to his opponent from Bloomsburg.

Yanis Takes 2nd at Mount Union Invitational
Great job by Minisink Valley graduate Joey Yanis in taking 2nd place at the Mount Union Invitational on Saturday.  Yanis wrestles at 197 pounds for Division III SUNY Brockport.  Yanis pinned his way into the finals before injury defaulting out of the first place match. The match was 2-2 in OT at the time of the injury.  Great job Joey!!!

Curreri Off to a Great Start!!
Eldred graduate Noah Curreri is off to a great start to his sophomore campaign at Queens University of Charlotte! The 184 pound sophomore is off to a 7-0 start including two wins this past weekend and a title at the Patriot Open last weekend!  Great job Noah!!!

Bethel Remains Undefeated After 4-0 Weekend!
Saugerties graduate James Bethel remains undefeated for the season after going 4-0 this past weekend at the Electric City Duals in Scranton, PA.  Bethel recorded two pins and received two wins via forfeit to remain unblemished for the 2018-2019 season!

Brown Records 1st College Win in Style!!!
Congrats to Warwick grad Hunter Brown for notching his first collegiate win this past weekend with a :07 second pin over Mont Alto’s Dominick Hyatt! Brown wrestles 125 for DIII Ursinus College in Pennsylvania. Impressive win Hunter!!!
