NYSPHSAA Girls Invitational – Recap

Section 9 had an outstanding showing at the 2024 NYSPHSAA Girls Wrestling Invitational. We crowned two champions and had six other ladies place in the top-6 in their weight class. Huge congratulations to Monroe Woodbury’s Gigi Sullivan and New Paltz’s Rebecca Brennan for taking home gold medals! Sullivan entered the tournament as the #7 seed yet pinned her way through the entire bracket including her :48 win by fall in the finals over defending champ Zoey Jewett from Section 3 General Brown. Brennan, the #6 seed, had to grind her way through her bracket with a pin, a 7-5 sudden victory win, a 3-0 decision before notching a pin at the 5:37 mark in the finals over defending champ Madison Westerberg from Section 5 Waterloo! Great job Gigi and Rebecca!!!

Six other Section 9 ladies earned their way to the podium. At 107 pounds, Minisink Valley’s Keira Filip lost her opening round match but reeled off four straight wins before losing a 2-1 decision in her medal match and took home 4th place honors. Filip’s teammate Sara Pauls made a podium appearance for the second year in a row. The Minisink Valley freshman followed up last year’s championship performance with a gutty 3rd place finish at 114 pounds at this year’s tournament. Pine Bush senior Brooke Tarshis was a finalist at last year’s Girls Invitational and once again only lost one match at this year’s tournament and placed 3rd at 120. Tarshis’s only loss was in the semis to eventual champion Yianna Foufas from Section 8 Mepham. Minisink Valley had another 2X place winner in Jaida Macaluso who placed third at 132 pounds. Macaluso went 4-1 with her only loss coming in the semifinals to eventual champion Mia Collins from Ballston Spa. Liberty senior Zoe Kip went 3-3 at a very tough 152-pound bracket and took home 6th place honors. Minisink Valley’s Patricia Deslandes went 4-1 at 235 pounds and took home the bronze. Her only loss was in the semis to eventual champion Peyton Mullin from Section 5 Dundee.

Congratulations to all of our Section 9 girl wrestlers for laying it all on the line and making history! Girls Wrestling is the fastest growing sport in America and YOU are the reason why!!!

Section 9 Individual Rankings – January 19, 2024

We are halfway through January and many (but not all) of our wrestlers have reached their end of year weights! The Eastern States Classic and the Section 9 Duals have caused several big changes from our last edition of rankings! Enjoy!

101 Pounds – Division 1
1. William Soto (NFA, 9)
2. EJ Vass (Valley Central, 8)
3. Kelly Sullivan (Monroe Woodbury, 8)
4. Gigi Sullivan (Monroe Woodbury, 7)
5. Anthony Noboa (Middletown, 9)

101 Pounds – Division 2
1. Charlie Wylie (Port Jervis, 10)
2. Justin Jones (Port Jervis, 7)

In a rematch of the Mid-Hudson finals, Soto of NFA wins the Eastern States Classic with a 9-2 win over Vass from Valley Central. They remain #1 and #2 but Vass did close the gap a little in their dual meet bout a few days later and only lost 7-1. All signs point towards an awesome S9 D1 final match between these two hammers! Our #2 is Kelly Sullivan from MW who has dropped three matches since our last rankings, but they were all at 108 and all three opponents are state-ranked kids. Gigi Sullivan from MW is having an awesome year and has moved up to #4 followed by our new #5 Anthony Noboa from Middletown who notched a win over previously ranked Garrett Judd from Warwick. Judd will definitely remain a contender here as will Griffyn Alfalla from Pine Bush who is putting together a very solid season. We have a new #1 in D2 at 101 because defending S9 champion and state place winner Charlie Wylie from Port Jervis competed at 101 for the Eastern States Classic. Wylie went 2-2 at the ESC and did not place but she is still the clear #1 here. Wylie’s teammate Justin Jones is #2 here and had a hard fought 5-4 win over previous #1 Matteo Walsh from Rondout Valley who definitely one to watch at this weight.

Middletown’s Jared Lupian Reyes is your new #3 with his impressive win over Gabe Simpson from Minisink Valley who drops down to #4. Kingston’s Logan Shultis remains in the #5 spot!. This weight has some excellent depth with wrestlers like Owen Milmore from Washingtonville, Juan Landa Cruz from Saugerties, and Gabriel McNalley from Pine Bush all in the medal hunt.

116 Pounds – Division 2
1. Bradley Gatto (Highland, 11)
2. Lorenzo Caserto (Marlboro, 9)

Warwick’s Brady Judd has dropped down to 116 and takes over the #1 spot here. Judd went 0-2 at ESC but that is no reflection on the year he is having – the ESC is a brutal tournament. Judd has a few wins over other ranked wrestlers here but has yet to face the wrestler who was our previous #1, Gianni Gennaro from Washingtonville who is having a great year. At #3 we have Santiago Chrisjohn from Saugerties. Chrisjohn has several quality wins this year as has our #4 here, Jordan Busby from Newburgh Free Academy. Busby’s only loss since our last ranking was a 7-0 decision to our new #1 Judd. A few others to watch here at 116 D1 are Andrew Smith from Middletown, Colin Matone from Minisink Valley and Liam McCarthy from Wallkill. We have a new #1 at 116 D2 in Bradley Gatto. The Highland junior recently won the Highland Round Robin. Dropping to the #2 spot here is Lorenzo Caserto from Marlboro who is putting together a very nice station. Andrew Roberts from Port Jervis will also be in the mix here.

Huge overhaul in our 124-pound rankings. We have a new top-2 in D1 and a new #1 in D2! Defending state champion Luke Satriano from Valley Central has dropped down to 124 and is our new #1 in Division 1. Satriano took 4th place at the Eastern States Classic in what many are calling the deepest weight class in tournament history. Also coming down to 124 is Wallkill’s Viktor Banda and he takes over our #2 ranking here. Banda is a dangerous wrestler with several quality wins this season including two pins over our #3 wrestlers here, Elijah Brown from Monroe Woodbury. Brown competed in the Kohl Tournament and won the title at 124. Our #4 at 124 D1 is Myles Amell from Saugerties. Amell also has several quality wins this year and will definitely be a contender for a birth to the state tournament in Albany. Banda’s teammate Devin Strother is having a very good season and is our #5 ranked wrestler here and we can’t overlook Justin Noboa from Middletown, Vincent Coppola from Minisink Valley, Jacob Burgos from Washingtonville, or Luke Dakin from FDR Hyde Park. On the Division 2 side we have Port Jervis junior coming down to 124 and taking over the #1 spot. Harrison earns the top spot here by beating Red Hook’s Ewen Celestine 8-6 at the Section 9 Duals D2 finals. This could be a great rematch for the D2 title where only the winner goes to Albany!

One of the most improved wrestlers in Section 9 over the past year is Matt Mercado from NFA and he is our new #1 at 131 pounds. Mercado only has two losses thus far this season and they were both at the Eastern States Classic where he went 2-1. His one win was a 5-4 decision over Middletown’s Jacob Roger who has dropped down from 138 and is our new #2 here. Roger had a win by fall over former #2 Nate Racz from Minisink Valley who is now our #3 here. Racz went 3-2 and looked solid at the ESC. Goshen’s Jacob Perales is our #4 here and we have a new #5 in Richard Urena from Pine Bush who is having a very solid 2023-2024 campaign. On the D2 side we still have Marlboro’s Reese Greathouse as our #1 ranked wrestler. Greathouse wrestled tough at the ESC and finished 1-2.

138 Pounds – Division 2
1. Thomas Shields (Onteora, 12)
2. Markus Ferrara (Port Jervis, 9)

Division 1 at 138 pounds is another weight class with a few major changes! Based on his performance at the Eastern States Classic, Wyatt Boice is our new #1. Boice, a freshman at Minisink Valley, trades places with Warwick’s Griffin Petzold who now sits at #3 here. Boice battled very tough in every match and ended up taking 6th place in a very tough bracket at ESC where he took three losses. He lost 5-2 to the eventual runner-up, 8-6 to the 3rd place finisher, and 2-0 in his 5th/6th medal match. He was as good as any wrestler in his bracket. Petzold was also at ESC going 1-2. He’s having a great season and is definitely going to be in the mix for the Section 9 title at this weight. Our new #2 is Middletown sophomore Daniel Aviles who has dropped down from 145. Aviles wrestled well at the ESC and made it to day 2 however he was forced to medically forfeit his first match on Saturday and then notched a win over Petzold in the Section 9 Duals semis. Minisink Valley freshman Joseph Uhrig is having a very good year and sits at #4 here followed by Valley Central freshman Maximus Smith who is our #5. No changes at D2 138 with Onteora’s Thomas Shields holding on to the top spot followed by Port Jervis freshman Markus Ferrera. Rondout Valley’s Jackson Barcone could get into the mix here so we should keep an eye on him.

5. Evan Weeden (Goshen, 10)

145 Pounds – Division 2
1. Justin Coiteux (New Paltz, 12)
2. Anthony Theodore (Port Jervis, 11)

Washingtonville junior Mason Ketcham dropped down to 145 and placed 3rd at the Eastern States Classic earning him the #1 ranking at 145 in Division 1. The wrestler he unseated at #1 is Anthony Tresch from Minisink Valley. Tresch was also at ESC and lost in the blood round however he did have a early round win over the wrestler who placed 8th and he only lost 3-0 to the eventual champion Joe Manfredi from Herricks. A showdown between Ketcham and Tresch could be a great match! This weight is not a two-dog race – our #3, Liam Hayes from MW, and #4, Anastasios Tzezailidis from Warwick, are both very game! Evan Weeden from Goshen sits at #5 and will definitely be in the mix here as will Brennan Paul from FDR Hyde Park and Michael Cantania from Valley Central. No changes on the Division 2 side with Justin Coiteux from New Paltz holding on to the #1 slot with Port Jervis junior Anthony Theodore coming in at #2.

1. Quinian Jones (Highland, 11)

Greiner lost to the wrestlers who placed 2nd and 3rd and had wins over the 6th, 7th, and 8th place finishers – that’s 5 matches against ESC place winners in two days! Pine Bush’s Logan Pennell also had a good showing at the ESC. He went 3-2 and made it to the blood round. Pennell sits at #2 here and is followed by Saugerties senior Jack Bucci. Bucci placed 4th at the Oneonta Rotary Tournament and faced some stiff competition along the way. Our new #4 at 152 is Michael Accardo from Warwick who is putting together a very solid season followed by Monroe Woodbury’s Isaiah Grant who sits at #5 here. Grant’s Crusader teammate Brandon Carcaterra will definitely be in the medal hunt at the Section 9 tournament. Highland’s Quin Jones remains our top ranked wrestler for D2 at 152 followed by our new #2 William Curreri from Port Jervis. Another Port Jervis wrestler Dylan Fox notched an 8-5 win over previous #2 Patrick Nolan from Ellenville – both will definitely be in the hunt here.

1. Ryan Ross (Port Jervis, 12)
2. Michael Franco (Chester, 12)

Our #1 wrestler at 160 pounds in D1 is Minisink Valley junior PJ Duke who is without question one of the top-10 pound-for-pound wrestlers in the nation. Duke, ranked #1 in the nation at 157, won the title at the ESC and did so by defeating another wrestler ranked in the top-10 in the nation at his weight, Cameron Catrabone from Section 6 Williamsville NE.

Weeden dropps to our #3 position followed by Matteo Morell from NFA who is putting together a very solid season. Our new #5 at this weight is Washingtonville’s Musa Aljamal who has dropped down from 170 pounds. Liam Dkin from FDR Hyde Park is one to watch here as well! No changes in Division 2 with Port Jervis senior Ryan Ross holding down the top spot followed by Chester’s Michael Franco. Ross had a nice showing at the ESC where he went 3-2 and made it to the blood round.

170 Pounds – Division 2
1. Ivan Figueroa (Port Jervis, 12)
2. Frankie Shaw (Burke, 12)

Minisink Valley senior Quinten Morgan holds on to the top spot here but this weight class is wide open. Our former #2 Annacone from Wallkill was teched by Subocz from Monroe but then Subocz was pinned by Conrow from Pine Bush. Annacone drops all the way to #4 this week however he lost a 3-2 nail biter to Morgan at the Section 9 Duals semis. Conrow moves all the way up to #2 and Subocz is our new #3. Entering the 170 pound rankings at #5 is Tray Bilyou from FDR Hyde Park who narrowly lost to Annacone at the Mid-Hudson and is having a great season. We also need to keep an eye on Avery Davis from Beacon who wrestled a tough match against Bilyou at Mid-Hudson losing 4-1. This will be a great weight class to follow at the Section 9 Tournament! Port Jervis senior Ivan Figueroa has dropped down from 190 and takes over the #1 spot at 170 in Division 2. Burke’s Frankie Shaw slides down to #2 and we should definitely keep our eyes on Chester sophomore Elvin Momanyi.

Tibb’s teammate Julani Graham enters the rankings this week on the heels of an impressive 8-5 win over former #2 Johnny Accardo from Warwick at the Section 9 Duals semis.

Honorable mention Jaheel Wilson from NFA should not be overlooked and will definitely be in the medal hunt in mid-February. Red Hook’s Mark Paschal placed 5th at the Mid-Hudson and has pinned every opponent since then. He remains our #1 wrestler at 285 D2 followed by Port Jervis freshman Nick Oosterom.
