NYSPHSAA Wrestling Championships – Day 1 Recap

Division 1
The Section 9 Division 1 squad had a very good day! No major surprises on either side of the ledger – just a very solid, workmanlike performance. We had 8 wrestlers advance to tomorrow morning’s semifinal round and we have 15 other wrestlers who will wrestle in the blood round. In the blood round, if you win you are guaranteed a top-8 placement, if you lose you are eliminated. The semifinalists are already guaranteed a top-6 placement. There will be separate post following all of the Section 9 wrestlers during tomorrow’s sessions. Let’s take a look at the Division 1 wrestlers who have made it to Day 2!

Semifinalists
101 – William Soto (NFA) and EJ Vass (Valley Central)
108 – Cooper Merli (NFA)
124 – Luke Satriano (Valley Central)
145 – Mason Ketcham (Washingtonville)
160 – PJ Duke (Minisink Valley)
215 – Bryson Tibbs (Middletown)
285 – Stephan Monchery (Middletown)

215 – Christopher Leggett (NFA) and Jacob Dejesus (Washingtonville)
285 – Rahmiere Bradley (Middletown)

Team Race and Sectional Race
Section 9 has several teams that are in the hunt and will finish the tournament in the top-10. After Day 1, Plainedge is leading the Division 1 team race with 49 points followed by St. Francis with 47, Minisink Valley with 42, Middletown with 36, and Wantagh with 35.5 points and NFA rounds off the top 6 with 31 points.

Discussing the sectional team race is premature because only the highest placing wrestler from each section can earn points for the sectional race so we will revisit this tomorrow.

Division 2
Our Division 2 squad had a day with some highs and lows. Ryan Ross was the only D2 wrestler to advance to the quarterfinals and he was defeated in that round so there and no Section 9 Division 2 semifinalists. The boys did, however, dust themselves off and wrestled back extremely hard! After two rounds of consies, we now have 7 Division 2 wrestlers alive in the blood round! I believe this is the highest number of Section 9 D2 wrestlers to advance to Day 2 of the state tournament! Congratulations boys! Let’s take a look at the wrestlers who are still alive!

Blood Round
108 – Bryce Reilly (Our Lady of Lourdes)
145 – Justin Coiteux (New Paltz)
160 – Ryan Ross (Port Jervis)
170 – Michael Franco (Chester)
190 – Maddox McCormick (Port Jervis)
215 – Matt Oosterom (Port Jervis)
285 – Mark Paschal (Red Hook)

101 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
This is going to be an exciting weight class to watch unfold. There is a nice mixture of both experienced varsity wrestlers and those who are wrestling at the varsity level for the first time. Section 5 champion Wyatt Sartori is having a great year and is likely one of the favorites as is Section 6 champion Jakob Lucinski who placed 4th at this tournament last year. PSAL champion Brandon Munoz will definitely contend here as will Section 4 champ and runner-up Declan McKee and Caden Higley respectively. Others to keep an eye on here are Section 8 champ Colton Schmiesing, Section 5 runner-up John Winseman, Section 11 champ Antonio Faldetta, and Section 6 finalist Mason Dellapenta.

108 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
There is a lot of talent in this weight class and there are several wrestlers with the potential to win it all on Saturday! As a returning state champion, Tommy Aiello from Section 11 is certainly one to watch however he’s been defeated by one of the other wrestlers in the bracket – Cadin Cole from Tioga. Cole, however, finished 3rd in the Section 4 tournament behind champion Maverick Beckwith and runner-up Anthony Valls. Beckwith has an early season win over 2X state champion Darren Florance! All three Section 4 entries have the ability to place here. Section 6 champion Jaron Barrientos is another wrestler with the potential to take gold here and the same can be said for Section 5 champ Joe Scott who is undefeated thus far this season and placed 7th in NYS last season.

116 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
Section 4 champion Darren Florance is a 2X NYS champion and is the favorite to win it again this season – but he will be tested. Section 3 champion Brock Frederick from South Jefferson is having a great season and enters the state championships with an unblemished record. Another serious contender here is Section 5 champion Dylan Depew-Cappadonia. The Canisteo-Greenwood junior has only two losses on the season – both were to returning state place winners back in December and up at 124 pounds! A few other wrestlers to keep an eye on here are Section 6 champion Dylan Newman, Chase Davis from Section 11, and Section 4 qualifiers Logan Bellis and Lucas Hoffman.

124 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
This is one of the deepest weight classes in the tournament – either division! There are at least seven wrestlers in this bracket with a legitimate shot of earning the top step of the podium. Section 3 champion Chase Nevills is a returning state champ so he’s certainly in the mix. Nevills is having another great season however did suffer a loss earlier in the year to Section 5 champ and former state placer Chris Noto. Noto is undefeated thus far this year however he was not at the Eastern States Classic where Section 8 champion Finnegan O’Brien made it all the way to the finals before dropping a 3-0 decision to Evin Gursoy. Caden Barrientos from Section 6 is as tough as they come and will definitely contend here as will Chris Colon who won the Section 11 title and finished 5th in the state last season. Section 3 runner-up Gene Edwards was also a state place winner last season finishing 4th at 118 pounds. Section 4 Caleb Cole will also be in the mix here. Cole finished 4th at 110 last year however needed to avenge a loss to fellow Section 4 hammer Landyn Shaffer in order to win the sectional tournament. Sit back and enjoy – this will be a great one to watch!

131 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
Section 11 champion Gavin Mangano was a state finalist last season and was the 2024 Eastern States Classic champion where he defeated 2X Division 1 state champ Matt Marlow. Mangano is clearly one of the favorites here, but he will have plenty of competition. Section 4 champion Jayden Duncanson placed 3rd in the state last season and has a 28-1 record this season. His only loss was to a wrestler in this bracket, Carmine Calimeri from Section 6! Section 3 champion Kolton Kelly was a state place winner last year and needs to be watched here and the same can be said for Esuar Ordonez who is the Section 1 champion. Section 2 champ Justin Mullis has a win over Ordonez and he placed 7th at the Eastern States so he’s in the mix as is Sawyer Bell from Section 7 who is undefeated at 44-0. Others to keep an eye on here are Scott Nicolella from Section 2, Zachary Rooks from Section 5, and Kenji Walters from Section 6.

138 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
In the opinion of almost every wrestling fan, 138 Division 2 the most “stacked” bracket in the tournament – either division! At 138 we have the top three place finishers from last year at 126 and the top two place finishers from last year at 132 – not to mention a few other returning state place winners! Let’s start with the three former state champs! Undefeated Brayden Fahrbach from Section 11 was the state titlist at 132 pounds last season, and he was this year’s Eastern States Classic champion. Jordan Joslyn was the state champ at 126 last year and he is a perfect 44-0 this season. To win last year’s state title Joslyn defeated a 2X state champ from Section 4, Gianni Sylvestri, who is also in this bracket and also happens to be undefeated! Aiden Gillins from Section 6 was a state finalist last season losing to Fahrbach in the finals. He is having another great year and will be in the hunt this year as will Trevor Bishop from Section 2 Tamarac whose only losses this year were at the Beast of the East and the Eastern States Classic. Cole Sands from Section 5, Patrick Grimsey from Section 3, and Alex Clancy from Section 7 are all returning state place winners and will definitely contend here.

145 – Section 9 Champion
Justin Coiteux (New Paltz, senior)
Season Record: 35-5
Record Against the Bracket: 1-1
Results Against the Bracket: Win over Cox 12-4; lost to Cullen 7-3

145 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
This is without a question a very solid weight class, but the favorite here is Casper Stewart from Section 5. Stewart is a multiple time Division 1 place winner, and he has been nationally ranked in the past. He has a 38-3 record this year with two of his losses coming at the Beast of the East where he placed 5th and the other coming up at 152 to 2023 state champion Caden Bellis from Tioga. Two of Bellis’s Tioga teammates are contenders to win a title here – Tyler Roe and Deakon Bailey have both qualified for the state tournament and will be in the medal hunt. Aiden Buttery from Section 6, Colton Havens from Section 5 and Kieren Cullen from Section 2 are all returning state place winners and will definitely contend here. All three Section 3 qualifiers – Ryley Monica, Matt Verri, and Cooper Reed who is a 2023 state placer – are legitimate medal contenders and we shouldn’t overlook Section 11 champ Kyle Barber. A few others to watch here are Section 9 champ Justin Coiteux, AIS champ Leo Tansey, and Section 8 champion Raymond McNulty.

152 – Section 9 Champion
Quinian Jones (Highland, junior)
Season Record: 37-10
Record Against the Bracket: 0-0
Results Against the Bracket: none

152 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
One of the definite favorites to win this bracket is defending state champion Caden Bellis from Section 4. The Tioga senior was a state titlist at 138 last year and has a 38-1 record this season. His one loss, however, is to a wrestler who is also in this bracket, Tavian Camper from Section 3. Camper defeated Bellis 9-7 in sudden victory in late December, but Bellis avenged the loss and beat Camper 1-0 in mid-January. Could round 3 take place on Saturday night in Albany? Section 10 champion Vandavian Way is a returning state place winner and will be in the mix and we should not overlook Section 1 champion Henry Martin or Section 3 finalist TJ O’Connor.

Season Record: 36-5
Record Against the Bracket: 2-0
Results Against the Bracket: Wins over Malfitano 4-0 and Bell 9-3.

160 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
The heavy favorite to repeat as 160-pound Division 2 state champion is Ousmane Duncanson from Section 4. The Tioga senior is undefeated this season sporting a perfect 29-0 record. His stiffest competition may come from Section 3 champion Mason Rowley from Little Falls. Rowley has a win over the top seeded Division 1 170 pounder Jonathan Clohecy and a few wins over Vandavian Way. Canisteo Greenwood’s Beu Zeh was a state place winner last season so he’s one to watch but he lost in the Section 5 finals to Noah Leitten from Perry HS who comes in with a 44-1 record. Duncanson’s teammate McCumber is tough and will be in the medal hunt as will Section 9 champion Ryan Ross and Section 6 winner Jacob Stevenson.

Results Against the Bracket: win over Smithwick DQ

170 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
After missing the state tournament last season, Section 5 champion Braidon Woodward has been on a mission this season. The Pal-Mac senior is sporting a 50-1 record with his only loss being a 3-2 decision to Division 1 hammer Griff LaPlante. He won the Eastern States Classic and scored bonus points over nearly every opponent this year. Woodward’s toughest competition in Albany may be the wrestler he beat in the Section 5 finals, Tavyn MacDonell from Bolivar Richburg. MacDonell was a state finalist this year and has only lost to one Division 2 opponent all year – Woodward by a score of 10-2. Section 3 has a few solid entries here in Charles Foster and Jack Lamson who was a state place winner last year. Neves Hoose from Section 6, Drew Gates from Section 10, and Michael Franco from Chester could make some noise here at 170 in Division 2.

Maddox McCormick (Port Jervis, junior)
Season Record: 29-2
Record Against the Bracket: 0-1
Results Against the Bracket: Lost to Meak f 5:42

190 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
Some very tough wrestlers and a few returning state medalists but all signs point towards a rematch of last year’s 172-pound state final with Tavio Hoose from Section 6 and Greyson Meak from Section 8. The 2023 tilt was won by Hoose who is having another monster year and notched another win over Meak this year in the Eastern States Classic semifinals by a score of 6-5. The Southwestern sophomore is 43-1 on the season with his only loss coming in the finals of the ESC to Elijah Diakomihalis. Meak is also having a great year. The Cold Spring Harbor junior’s only loss this year was the aforementioned loss to Hoose in the ESC semis. The Section 2 champion Jesse Mullis will definitely be a contender here. Mullis was a state place winner last year and he took 8th at this year’s Eastern States Classic. Section 4 champ Mason McCombs is a former state placer and is undefeated this year so he’ll be in the hunt as will both Section 5 entries – Malachi Smith from Byron Bergen and Luke Van Gorden from Pal-Mac. Section 9 champ Maddox McCormick is very tough and could surprise a few people in Albany and let’s keep an eye on Section 3 champion Trent True!

215 – Section 9 Champion
Matthew Oosterom (Port Jervis, senior)
Season Record: 40-1
Record Against the Bracket: 1-0
Results Against the Bracket: Win over Weaver f 1:01

215 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
This weight class should come down to a showdown between two wrestlers who finished 4th in NYS last season – Matt Oosterom from Section 9 and Sean Kelly from Section 3. Oosterom, a senior from Port Jervis, placed 4th at 215 in 2023. He is having another great season sporting a 40-1 record with his only loss coming at the Eastern States to one of the ESC finalists. If Oosterom win on Saturday night, he will be the first Section 9 Division 2 wrestler to ever win a state title since the state went to a 2-division system back in 2009. Kelly, a senior from Lowville, is up a few weights from last year when he took 4th place at 172 pounds. He also is having a great season and was an Eastern States Classic place winner in January. Section 4 champ Dominick Weaver and PSAL champ and 2023 state placer Christian Solano should do well here, and we should also keep an eye on state placer Caden Allen from Section 5 and both Section 6 entries – Matt Trim and Mason Maring. Section 1 champion Thomas Kellas is only an 8th grader. It’s not often that we see an 8th grader qualify for the state tournament at 215 pounds – he could be fun to follow.

Results Against the Bracket: Lost to Keilitz f 3:12

285 – Division 2 Tournament Preview
This is one of the most wide-open weight classes in the tournament. There is one Eastern States Classic place finisher and one former state place winner. Section 3 champion Landon Andrade placed 2nd at this year’s Eastern States Classic and is definitely considered one of the favorites here. Another contender is Section 6’s Hamza Merrick who placed 8th in NYS last year, Merrick, however, was defeated in the Section 6 finals by his teammate Willam Wortkoetter so he’s definitely in the hunt as is Section 5’s Luke Herendeen who is 44-4 on the season. Section 7 champ Dylan Cogswell could make some noise here and let’s keep an eye on Alex Kielitz from Section 11.

101 Pound Tournament Preview
All signs point towards an all Section 9 final and the fifth meeting of the season between local hammers William Soto from NFA and EJ Vass from Valley Central. Soto, who finished 3rd in NYS last season, has won all 4 matches this season but you cannot sleep on Vass. He’s scrappy, he knows how to finish, and he has seven wins over wrestlers in this bracket – so he’s battle tested! Kelly Sullivan from Monroe Woodbury keeps getting better and he also has a few wins over wrestlers in this field. Do not be shocked if he makes it to the podium on Saturday! Brady Maneri from Section 3 needs to be watched here. He is currently undefeated and has scored bonus points in nearly every match this season. Both Section 8 entries at this weight, Ethan Andreula, who placed 7th in the state last season, and Vincent Orandello, are extremely tough and likely to place and let’s keep an eye on Dario Guglielmo who has not lost a match since dropping down to 101 pounds.

Record Against the Bracket: 0-1
Results Against the Bracket: Lost to Merli f: 25.

108 Pound Tournament Preview
NFA’s Cooper Merli was the NYS champion at 102 last year and is definitely one of the favorites here however his road to the top step of the podium goes through a few wrestlers who have defeated him this year. Long Beach sophomore Dunia Sibomana was a state champion in 2022 and finished 3rd in the state last year. Sibomana and Merli locked horns in the Eastern States Classic finals where the Section 8 champ won by a score of 9-2. Anthony Lagala-Ryan from Section 11, 5th in NYS 2023, defeated Merli in the Mid-Hudson semis however he lost in the S11 finals to last year state finalist at 102 Connor Sheridan by a score of 6-2. Merli beat Sheridan 6-0 at the Eastern States Classic. Will Russell from Section 8 has lost two very close matched to Sibomana and will contend here as will Gino Manta from Section 11. Section 2 champ Ralph Keeney, who placed 4th in NYS last year, only has one loss this year and that was at the semis of the ESC to Sibomana so he’ll be in the mix as will Manta from S11 and Edwards from CHSAA. Marco Futia from Wallkill and Tristin Levin from PSAL could surprise some folks here.

116 Pound Tournament Preview
Evin Gursoy form Midwood PSAL is the clear favorite to win this weight. Gursoy finished 2nd in the state last year at 110 to Luke Satriano, and this year he was the Eastern States Classic champion! He is undefeated and has scored bones points in nearly every match this season. One of the wrestlers most capable of testing Gursoy is Austin Zimmerman from CHSAA. Zimmerman placed 5th in the state last year and is primed to move higher on the podium. Section 8 champ Salazar has a win over Zimmerman and will definitely contend here as will both Donohue and Severino from Section 11. Section 9 champion Brady Judd from Warwick could make the podium here and we can’t look past Ryan Ball from Section 1, Greg Walpole from Section 8, or Brayden Kellison from Section 6.

124 Pound Tournament Preview
With two defending state champions and no fewer than five other wrestlers in the mix, the 124-pound weight class is absolutely loaded! Section 11’s Matt Marlow is a 2X state champ and definitely one of the favorites here however he has suffered a few setbacks this season. Section 9 champion Luke Satriano was the NYS champ at 110 last season and has not lost to a New York wrestler all season. Section 8 hammers Anthony Clem, 2023 state finalist, and Shane Dobbins will definitely be in the title hunt as will Dillon Arrick from Section 1 who placed 3rd in NYS last year. State placer Richard Wood from Section 5, Tomah Gummow from Section 3 and Nico Rivera from Section 2 are all tough as nails and will also contend here. Wrestlers like Viktor Banda from Section 9 and state placer Mason Mangialino from Section 11 are very solid and definitely add depth to an already stacked weight class.

Section 5 champion Samson McKissick-Staley is the favorite here. The Pittsford sophomore placed 6th in NYS last season, is currently undefeated, and was this year’s champion at the Eastern States Classic where he defeated Iona Prep’s Vincent Tripaldi in the finals. Tripaldi’s only loss this year was to McKissick-Staley. Section 8 has two legitimate contenders here in 2023 state finalist Joe Clem from Wantagh and Jake Nieto from Plainedge. Section 2 champion Jacob Hanlon and Section 11 champion Tyler Visciano can definitely make some noise here and we should also keep an eye on Section 9 champion Matt Mercado and Section 11’s Michael Giugliano who was a state place winner in 2023.

With no clear-cut favorite and at least six wrestlers with a legit title shot, 138 will be a great weight class to follow up in Albany. Section 8 champion and returning state 5th Luke Nieto has a 41-1 record with his only loss coming against Joe Tornambe at the Eastern States Classic. Tornambe only has two wrestled losses – both at ESC – one to a Division 2 wrestler and the other to the PSAL champ Amir Avazov who is entered here. Avazov, who placed 4th in NYS in 2023, has losses to Nieto, and one another contender here – Section 8 finalist Eric Gendlin. One of the definite favorites here is state placer Camryn Howard from Section 11 and he is only in 8th grade! Howard’s opponent in the S11 finals, Leo Mongiello, will also be in the mix here as will AJ Didas from Section 6!

145 Pound Tournament Preview
A season ending injury to Eastern States Classic champion Joe Manfredi from Section 8 has turned 145 into a wide-open weight class. Section 9 champion Mason Ketcham, who has wrestled at a private school in NJ for the past few years, is definitely one of the favorites. Ketcham has a 44-1 record on the season and his only loss was at the Eastern States Classic and it was to an out-of-state wrestler. Liam Carlin, from Burnt Hills in Section 2, is also one of the favorites here. Carlin only has three losses this season – two at the ultra-tough Powerade Tournament and the other at the ESC semis where he finished 3rd at 152 pounds. Section 11 champion Anthony Avitabile’s only loss this year has been to NYS and ESC champion Fahrbach so he’s definitely one to watch and we definitely shouldn’t look past Section 4 champ Daniel Parker who is having another great season. Anthony Tresch from Minisink Valley has lost two 3-1 decisions to Ketcham so he’ll definitely be in the mix as will Battisti from Section 5, returning state placer Te’Shaun Mathews from Section 6, George Johnson from the CHSAA and returning NYS placer Jared Spahn from Section 11.

152 Pound Tournament Preview
There is plenty of talent at this weight class but the heavy favorite going into the tournament is Cameron Catrabone from Section 6. Catrabone is currently ranked #8 in the nation by FloWrestling. He is a returning state champ and made it to the Eastern States Classic finals at 160 where he lost a 2-1 battle to PJ Duke from Minisink Valley who is ranked #1 in the nation! There are definitely a few wrestlers who will push Catrabone and one of them is, without question, Griffin LaPlante from the CHSAA. LaPlante, only a sophomore at St. Francis, won the Eastern States at 152 this year and he also placed top-8 at the ultra-tough Powerade Tournament in PA. The wrestler he defeated to win the ESC was Section 11 champ Jason Kwaak who will definitely contend for a high medal as will Section 8 champion Jesse Vanorden from Wantagh who placed 3rd in NYS at 145 last year. Minisink Valley senior Luke Greiner will be in the mix here as will Anthony Lofaro from Section 1 and Jackson Koppers from Section 5.

160 Pound Tournament Preview
The biggest favorite to win his weight class in this tournament is Section 9 champion PJ Duke. The Minisink Valley junior is already a 2X state champion, a Fargo champion, and Ironman champion, and a 2X Super 32 Challange champion. Duke is currently ranked #1 in the nation at his weight class and is ranked as the #8 pound-for-pound wrestler in the country. He has only been tested once all season and that was by Catrabone in the ESC finals. Catrabone is at 152 for the state tournament. After Duke, there are several other very talented wrestlers who will be competing for spots on the podium. Section 1 champ Sam Szerlip placed 3rd in Albany last year and will definitely be in the high medal hunt. Some of the other wrestlers we should keep an eye on here are Koufalis from CHSAA, Beksultan from PSAL, Schreck from Section 11, Rodriguez from Section 9, and Welcome from Section 2.

170 Pound Tournament Preview
This weight class is loaded with talented wrestlers and has no heavy favorite, so it should be a great bracket to follow at the MVP Arena in Albany! Gage LaPlante from CHSAA is definitely one of the favorites. He took 4th at the ESC and is primed for a title run after missing out on last year’s state tournament. Section 1 champ Leo Venables placed 4th at 172 in NYS last year, Landon Lazarek from Section 5 took 4th at 152 and Jonathan Clohecy from Section 3 placed 5th at 160 – all three are contenders here. Section 11 champ Christopher Reddy is undefeated so he’s certainly one to watch as in Devin Downes from Section 8. Zane Kropman from Section 5 will be fun to watch here. He’s only a freshman and his only two losses for the season were to state placer Lazarek – scores of 4-2 and 2-1 – he can open some eyes in Albany. A few other to keep on the radar here are Quinten Morgan from Minisink Valley and Section 6 champion Michael Schaefer from Lancaster.

There are some very tough wrestlers in this bracket but the odds-on favorite to make it to the top step of the podium on Saturday night is Elijah Diakomihalis from Section 5. The Hilton junior finished 2nd in the state last year and won the Eastern States Classic in January. Elijah is a perfect 42-0 this season and has wins over several of the other top contenders at this weight including Ian Sutherland from Section 1 and Zach Caldwell from the CHSAA. Sutherland placed 4th at the Eastern States Classic and Caldwell finished 7th. Minisink Valley sophomore Zach Filip is having a great season and will definitely be in the medal hunt here as will Zach Miller from Islip and Angel Flores from Section 8. A few other to watch here are Section 8 runner-up Jared Marine and Section 11 finalist Bryan Aulino whose only loss was to Miller in the Section 11 finals.

215 Pound Tournament Summary
This is another great weight class with plenty of talent and no clear-cut favorite! Coy Raines from Section 5 won the Eastern States Classic this year so he will definitely be one of the favorites as will Section 9 champion Bryson Tibbs who placed 3rd at SUNY Sullivan. Tibbs also placed 6th in NYS at 220 last season! Section 11 champ Chris Ayala has only one loss this year and that was an injury time loss so he’s one to watch as is Kamdim Bembry from Section 3 who is currently undefeated. Section 1 champion Alex Berisha has only two losses this year – both at the ESC and the losses were to the 2nd and 3rd place finishers – Berisha placed 5th. Section 9 wrestlers Chris Leggett and Jacob Dejesus could contend for a medal here. Leggett placed 4th at the Eastern States but he was defeated in the Section 9 semis by Dejesus who seems to be peaking at the right time.

285 Pound Tournament Preview
The heavyweight division always provides the crowd with some of the most exciting matches of the state tournament and this year should be no different. There are several wrestlers capable of winning it all, but the favorite is definitely Stephan Monchery from Middletown. The Section 9 senior is a perfect 38-0 this season and won the Eastern States Classic. Monchery also was a state finalist at the 2023 state tournament. Monchery’s teammate Rahmiere Bradley is making his 2nd trip to Albany, and he also placed last year taking 7th at 285 pounds. Section 3 champ Kamdyn Dorchester is having a monster year. Two of his three losses on the season were close decisions to Monchery and he has a win over Bradley. Section 8 champion Vincent Petzold will also be in the running. His only two losses this year were at ESC and one of those losses was to Section 3’s Chris Belmonte. Section 1 champion Michael Mauro could be in the hunt – he has three losses this year but all three were at 215 so he’s undefeated at 285. Section 11 finalists Albertelli and Pompeii are both medal contenders and so is PSAL champ Joseph Christian who has pinned every opponent this season so far!

In another absolutely dominating performance, Minisink Valley placed 15 wrestlers in the top-6, qualified 8 for the state tournament in Albany, and crowned four champions on their way to the team title for the 5th consecutive year (no tournament in 2021 due to COVID-19). Taking home top honors for the Warriors were Luke Greiner at 152, PJ Duke at 160, Quinten Morgan at 170, and Zach Filip at 190. Duke was voted Most Outstanding Wrestler of the tournament. The Minisink Valley junior is a 2X NYSPHSAA champion, an Ironman champion, a Fargo champion, and a 2X Super 32 champion. He is currently ranked #1 in the nation by both FloWrestling and MatScouts. Minisink Valley ran away with the team race scoring 291.5 points followed by Middletown with 177 points, NFA and Washingtonville with 157 points, and Warwick rounded out the top-5 with 133 points.

Middletown Heavyweights
Stephan Monchery & Rahmiere Bradley

Middletown and NFA both crowned three individual champs and both programs had two others qualify for the state tournament in Albany. Middletown was led by 2X champions Stephan Monchery at 285 and Bryson Tibbs at 215. DJ Aviles was the Middies other champion. He and his finals opponent at 138, Wyatt Boice of Minisink Valley, received the Michael DeCapua Award for the most exciting finals match. Aviles was trailing by a point with only a few seconds left before hitting a headlock and scoring two back-points to secure the 7-4 victory. NFA’s three champions were William Soto at 101, Cooper Merli at 108, and Matthew Mercado at 131. Merli was a 2023 state champion at 102 and Soto placed 3rd at the same weight in Albany last year. Another 2023 state champion, Luke Satriano from Valley Central, will be making his 3rd trip to the state tournament. Satriano pinned his way through the tournament this year and looking to add state title #2 in a few weeks! Warwick 116-pound junior Brady Judd was workmanlike in earning his 2nd trip to Albany and our other Section 9 champion was Mason Ketcham from Washingtonville who defeated returning champion Anthony Tresch from Minisink Valley in the finals.

Because of the tremendous success which our Section 9 Division 1 team has experienced over the past few seasons, our top three place finishers from the Section 9 Tournament qualify for the 2024 NYSPHSAA Championships in Albany. The tournament will take place at the Times Union Center on February 23rd and 24th. Here is a list of all of our Section 9 Division 1 state qualifiers.

Boys – Division 2

2024 Section 9 Championships
Division 2 Champions – Port Jervis

For the 5th time in the last six years, Port Jervis has won the Section 9 Division 2 Championship tournament. The Raiders placed 11 wrestlers in the top-4, had nine finalists, and crowned three champions on their way to the team title. Earning title for Port Jervis were Ryan Ross at 160, Maddox McCormick at 190, and Matt Oosterom at 215. Ross is already a 2X Section 9 champ winning in 2020 and 2022 and is hoping his 3rd trip to Albany will end with him standing on the podium. His teammate Matt Oosterom has also been to the state tournament twice – and he placed both times! Oosterom finished 7th in the state as a sophomore and took 4th last season. This year he is looking to cap off his high school career by becoming Section 9’s first ever Division 2 state champion! McCormick will be making his 2nd trip to the state capitol and has a great shot of making it to the medal stand! Port Jervis won the team title handily amassing 242 points followed by Red Hook with 160.5, Chester with 136, Onteora with 119 and Highland rounding out the top-5 with 118 points.

Justin Coiteux – New Paltz

Red Hook and Highland both had two champions. Red Hook’s Ewen Celestine, who is now a 2X Section 9 champion, won the title at 124 by defeating Port Jervis’ Justin Harrison in a match that was voted as the Most Exciting Finals Match by the coaches. Heavyweight Mark Paschal was Red Hook’s other champion. Highland had champions at 116 in Bradley Gatto and 152 in Quin Jones. Reese Greathouse, who is a Marlboro HS student but trains and competes with Highland, won the title at 131 pounds. Justin Coiteux from New Paltz is now a 3X Section 9 Division 2 champion and for the 2nd year in a row he was selected as the tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler! Thomas Shields from Onteora is now a 2X Section 9 champ winning the crown at 138 pounds. Chester 170 pounder Michael Franco needed to defeat a returning Section 9 champion, Ivan Figueroa from Port Jervis, in order to win his crown and punch his ticket to Albany. In a battle of 7th graders in the 101-pound final, Rondout Valley’s Matteo Walsh was victorious and will be heading to Albany as will Our Lady of Lourdes 108-pound sophomore Bryce Reilly who is his school’s first ever Section 9 champion.

Girls Division MOW
Alyssa Reed – Port Jervis

In one of the more anticipated matchups of the tournament, Alyssa Reed from Port Jervis defeated Minisink Valley’s Sara Pauls in the finals at 120. Pauls was a Section 9 champion last year and also won the 2023 Girls Invitational in Syracuse. For her efforts Reed, who pinned all three of her opponents, was voted Most Outstanding Wrestler in a nearly unanimous vote.
