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!!!

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.
