102 Pound Division 2 Preview
Always an exciting weight class to follow, this year’s 102-pound bracket will not disappoint! Aiello from Section 11 is undefeated and definitely one of the favorites however Section 9 champ Wylie is right there with him. Charlie only has one loss, and it was by medical forfeit to a wrestler she has defeated earlier in the season. Could NYS have our first ever female state champion in the boy’s division? Section 5 champ Stewart, Section 4 champ Beckwith and Section 3 champ Walseman will all definitely be in the hunt here too at D2 102! Bellis from S4 and Sartori from S5 are medal contenders here and Ortiz from S2 has not lost to a small school wrestler all season so we need to keep an eye on him!

He is undefeated on the season and currently ranked 15th in the nation by FloWrestling. Section 11 champ Gavin Mangano is 46-0 this season and he won the Eastern States Classic in January! Section 5 champion Chris Noto placed 3rd in NYS last year and took 5th at this year’s Eastern States Classic! Adding some outstanding depth to this bracket are Cole from S4, Frederick from S3, and McDowell from S5. This weight class is loaded!

118 Pound Division 2 Tournament Preview
With six returning state place winners, the 118 D2 weight class will certainly provide some excitement for the fans in Albany. Section 3 champ Chase Nevills has had the best season of the six and could be considered the favorite, however Section 4 champ Joey Florance, who wasn’t a state placer last year, pushed Nevills this year only losing 3-1. Section 4 runner-up Duncanson has a win over Florance this season but did lose to him three times. Ryan Devins is as tough as anyone when he gets hot – he made it all the way to the finals of the Eastern States Classic this year! McVige, Edwards, and Calimeri are all 2022 state place winners and are definitely contenders here and we shouldn’t overlook Avi Berg from Section 2.

126 Pound Section 9 Champion
Rian Kirker (Red Hook, senior)
Season Record: 35-9
Kirker’s Record Against the Bracket: 1-0
Kirker’s Results Against the Bracket: Rian defeated McClernon by pin :56

AIS – Joseph Rafferty (Rye Country Day School)

126 Pound Division 2 Preview
Another tough weight in the Division 2 tournament but defending state champion Gianni Silvestri from Section 4 is definitely the favorite. He is sporting a 38-1 record this season with his only loss coming at the hands of a nationally ranked wrestler from Florida. The two wrestlers with the best chance of picking off Silvestri are fellow S4 wrestler Trevor Cortright and Section 6 champ Jordan Joslyn. Cortright has a few losses to Silvestri this year, but the most recent match was decided in sudden victory by a 4-2 margin. Joslyn has an outstanding 42-2 record and will definitely be in the title hunt however one of his losses was to Liam English from Section 2. English, who placed 7th in the state last season, is in this bracket however he wasn’t the Section 2 champion – Trevor Bishop earned that honor by beating English 5-4 utb in the S2 finals. This weight has a lot of depth too with Winseman, Bailey, Spaulding, and Mirando all having great seasons!

132 Pound Section 9 Champion
Thomas Shields (Onteora, junior)
Season Record: 35-10
Shields’s Record Against the Bracket: 0-1

PSAL – Tiki Graham (Eagle Academy) 
AIS – Leo Tansey (Collegiate School)

132 Pound Division 2 Preview
This is a great weight class with plenty of talent but the favorite to come out on top is Section 11 champion Brayden Fahrbach. He is undefeated this season and won the Eastern States Classic at this weight in January. Fahrbach’s biggest competition in Albany will likely come from Newfane teammates Aiden Gillings and Ayden Buttery. Gillings, who finished 4th in the state last season, defeated Buttery 5-4 in the Section 6 finals. Section 5 champion Jazz Spaulding, also a 2022 state place winner, is having a great year and will be in the mix here as will Section 3 champ and state placer Patrick Grimsey. Spaulding defeated Grimsey 2-1 in the 7th/8th medal match in Albany last year. S2 champ Devine placed 8th in NYS last season and he’s in the mix at 138 D2. Shriberg from S8 and Clancy from S7 will definitely contend for medals here and also keep an eye on Tyler Roe from S4 who has put together a very solid season!

138 Pound Section 9 Champion
Demetrius Massey (Red Hook, senior)
Season Record: 28-8
Massey’s Record Against the Bracket: 0-2

Section 11 – Thomas Palumbo (Shoreham-Wading River)
PSAL – Cameron Mayfield (Eagle Academy) 
AIS – Cole Joseph (Hackley School)

138 Pound Division 2 Preview
Good weight class with some depth but all signs point to a showdown between Section 4 champ Caden Bellis and Section 5 champ Nicholas Noto. Bellis was the 2022 state silver medalist at 132 and Noto placed 3rd at the same weight. Bellis defeated Noto 5-1 early this season. Cooper Reed from S3 placed in 2022 but he was the S3 runner-up to Jack Lamson who is making his first trip to Albany. Cameron Mayfield from PSAL is dangerous and could definitely medal high here and the same could be said for Section 6 champion Xander Kirsch. Private School entry Cole Joseph is very solid and might surprise some people here.

145 Pound Section 9 Champion
Justin Coiteux (New Paltz, junior)
Season Record: 29-6
Coiteux’s Record Against the Bracket: 0-2
Coiteux’s Results Against the Bracket: Justin was defeated by Cullen 6-4 and was defeated by Veirun 5-1.

PSAL – Vakramogo Dosso (Eagle Academy) 
AIS – Liam Stiles (Collegiate School)

145 Pound Divion 2 Preview
This is one of the more wide-open weight classes in the tournament however the favorite is definitely Section 5 champion Caleb Sweet. A 2022 state finalist, Sweet is 39-1 this season with his only loss coming to a wrestler from out-of-state. His closest decision victory this year was at the Section 5 finals to Colten Havens who is definitely a contender here, as is Section 2 champ Owen Hicks who placed 6th at the Eastern States Classic. Section 11 champion Barber is one to watch here and Section 4 champ Macumber could go deep in the tournament. Section 9 champ Coiteux is tough as are S1 champ Veirun and S2 runner-up Cullen.

PSAL – Devone Bogie (Eagle Academy) 
AIS – Sean Tansey (Collegiate School)

152 Pound Division 2 Tournament Preview
2022 state placewinner Sean Tansey from the Independents could be the top dog here! Tansey is battle tested – 2-2 at Beast of the East, Mid-Hudson Finalist, Eastern States Classic place winner – and is ready for the state tournament. Tansey had a win over Section 10 champion Vandavian Way at the ESC but Way is a 2022 NYS 4th place finisher and is definitely a contender here. Section 3 champ Sixx Cook placed 3rd in the state last year and is having a great year with one of his two losses coming to Way. PSAL champ Bogie is having a great year and only lost by a 2-1 margin to Way so he’s in the mix here as will be Cuppett from 9 and Zeh from Section 5.

S9 160 Pound Champ

PSAL – Nicholas D’Erasmo (RKA) 
AIS – Will Choi (Horace Mann School)

160 Pound Division 2 Tournament Preview
The clear favorite at this weight class is Section 4 champion Ousmane Duncanson. The Tioga junior was the 2022 NYS champion at 152 pounds, and he is a perfect 33-0 on the season. The two wrestlers most likely to test Duncanson are both from Section 5 – Luke Denis, a 2022 state place winner, and Tayvn MacDonell. Both wrestlers are having great seasons and have traded wins with each other in head-to-head matches. Although relatively untested, Section 2 champion Schirmacher is sporting a perfect 35-0 record, so we need to keep an eye on him as well as Shearing from S5 and McCombs from S4. McCombs was a state placer last season at 160. Hockx from Section 9 is dangerous and could contend for a medal here!

172 Pound Division 2 Tournament Preview
With only one returning state medalists in this bracket, 172 D2 is one of the most wide-open weight classes in Albany this year. Section 3 Jordan Koenig placed 3rd in the state last season and is sporting a 41-1 record with his only loss coming at 189 to a 2022 state finalist so he is the favorite here. Section 6 champion Tavio Hoose also has only a single loss on the season and that loss was to a wrestler from PA. Section 8 champion Meek from Cold Spring Harbor will definitely contend here and Section 4 has three entries that all have the potential to go make a run at the podium – Edwards, Allen, and Harrington! Section 7 champion Landon Smith has put together a nice season with some quality wins and a top-8 showing at the ESC. Section 9 champ Colon is a good finisher and could surprise some folks here!

189 Pound Division 2 Preview
If 172 is wide open with only one returning state place winner, 189 pounds, with not a single medalist in the field, is definitely up for grabs! Section 2 champion and Eastern States Classic finalist Troy Austin is clearly one of the favorites here. He has a 39-1 record with his lone loss coming to Elijah Diakomihalis at the ESC finals. Section 3 champion Andrew Bailey is undefeated this year and so is Section 5 champ Malachi Smith so they are clearly contenders as is Section 3 runner-up Jared Bilinski who narrowly lost to Bailey in the S3 finals 2-1 utb! Davidson from S5 and Perry from S2 are worth watching here and keep an eye on S9 McCormick from Section 9 who has been very impressive in limited action.

The 215 Pound Section 9 Champion
Matt Oosterom (Port Jervis, junior)
Season Record: 39-4

215 Pound Division 2 Tournament Preview
Several quality wrestlers here but the huge favorite at 215 D2 is Sam Sorenson from Section 3. Sorenson was the 2021 Journeyman NYS champion, the 2022 NYS champion, the 2023 Eastern States Classic champion and is currently ranked #11 in the nation by FloWrestling. Section 2 champion Evan Day placed 3rd in 2022 up at 285 so he’ll be in contention for a high medal as is Section 4 champion Garrett Bidwell who is very tough! Matt Oosterom from Section 9 placed 7th in the state in 2022 so he’s one to watch! A few others to keep an eye on here are Barry from Section 6, Allen from Section 5, and Porpora from Section 11.

285 Pound Division 2 Tournament Preview
Normally a returning state champion would go into this tournament as an odd-on favorite – but not this year. Section 2 champion Tristen Hitchcock was the 2022 state champ at 285 and at 43-0 he’s certainly one of the favorites; however, Section 5 champion Trent Sibble may have something to say about this! Sibble was a state finalist at 215 last season and is 47-1 this year. His only loss of the season came down at 215 at the Eastern States Classic to D1 state champion Ethan Gallo. Earlier this season bumped up to 285 and notched an impressive win over Stephan Monchery from Middletown. Monchery won the ESC at 285 this season! This bracket will have some great depth too – Wazinski from S5, Bushey from S7, and Solano from PSAL are all returning state medalists. 285 D2 will be a great weight class to follow!

102 Pound Preview
This will be one of the most exciting weight classes in the Division 1 tournament this year. Merli, who is making his second trip to Albany, is having an incredible year which includes a title at the Eastern States Classic. He has head-to-heads over several wrestlers in this bracket including Sheridan, Mastrianni, Lagala-Ryan, Edwards, Andreula, and Soto. Merli’s one in-state loss this season, however, was to Lagala-Ryan who pinned Merli at the Jeff Cuilty Duals. Sheridan, Andreula and Soto all have close losses to Merli and are definitely going to be in the hunt here as will Testa who is 39-2 and Munn who is undefeated!

110 Pound Preview
Six returning state medalists including the top four finishers at 102 are entered here at 110 and promise to deliver plenty of fireworks for the fans at MVP Arena! Sibomana became last year’s state champ at 102 by pinning Ferrara in the finals. Both are in this bracket as are Gursoy and Satriano who placed 3rd and 4th respectively. As defending state champ, Sibomana is considered the favorite by many but it’s worth noting that Satriano has an impressive common opponent win over Sibomana. Dunia lost to Raekwon Shabazz from CT at the Beast of the East. A few weeks later, Satriano majored Shabazz at the Mid-Hudson Tournament. Keeney placed 5th and Mangialino took 8th at 102 at the state tournament last year. Euceda looked great at the S11 tournament and will be in the hunt as will Zimmerman who placed 6th at the Eastern States Classic. Magee should not be overlooked. He is undefeated this season however he has very few matches outside of Section 5. This is a very deep weight!

Wallkill’s Rocco Futia

118 Pound Section 9 Champion
Rocco Futia (Wallkill, senior)
Season Record: 47-2
Futia’s Record Against the Bracket: 5-1
Futia’s Results Against the Bracket: Rocco pinned Ramirez 1:42, defeated Ramirez 10-6, pinned Whiteley 4:58, defeated Gummow 11-10, defeated Boice 4-1, and was pinned by Marlow 4:19

Section 11 – Mikey Tietjen (Sachen East)
CHSAA – Shane Meenaghan (Chaminade)
PSAL – Jordan Lee (James Madison)

118 Pound Preview
This is an excellent weight class however returning state champion Matt Marlow is the favorite here. Marlow is a perfect 37-0 this season and was the champion at Eastern States. Anthony Clem from Wantagh will likely be Marlow’s toughest test. Clem came in 3rd at ESC with his only loss coming to Division 2 wrestlers Devins. Futia placed 5th at ESC and could contend here as will Wood from Brockport and Meenaghan from Chaminade who is currently undefeated.

Valley Central’s Richie Degon

Section 11 – Billy Colloca (West Babylon)
CHSAA – Nik Massaro (St. Joe’s Collegiate)
PSAL – Leo Gao (Brooklyn Tech)

126 Pound Preview
The 126-pound weight class was one of the most wide-open brackets at the Section 9 tournament…same can be said for 126 at the state tournament! There are no fewer that a half a dozen wrestlers with the ability to win this wight on any given day! Section 8 has three of them in Clem, Adams, and Manfredi while Section 6 has two of them in Crumpler and Reynolds. Crumpler beat Adams and Clem at Eastern States but lost to Manfredi. Clem beat Manfredi at the Section 8 tournament. Section 11 champ Howard from Bellport, only a 7th grader, hasn’t lost a match since mid-December and we should not overlook Tornambe or Degon here at 126.

Season Record: 32-6
Tresch’s Record Against the Bracket:

CHSAA – Justin Shay (Iona Prep)
PSAL – Botensky Bauzile (Thomas Edison)

132 Pound Preview
Another very solid weigh with plenty of talent however Section 4’s Tyler Ferrara is the clear favorite on paper. Ferrara was the 126 pound NYS champion last year and he won the Beast of the East this year! He is a perfect 29-0 for the season. Who’s has the potential to push Ferrara? Iona Prep’s Shay is a perfect 51-0 with a few win over wrestlers in the field and Liam Carlin and Michael Giugliano are having great seasons! Mathews is having a very solid season and Tresch has a win over Mathews which puts him into the mix here. Raines is tough and so are all three entries from Nassau! Very good weight class but it’s Ferrara’s to lose.

MW’s Jordan Brown

138 Pound Section 9 Champion
Jordan Brown (Monroe Woodbury, senior)
Season Record: 39-1
Brown’s Record Against the Bracket: 2-1
Brown’s Results Against the Bracket: Jordan was defeated by LaMorte 3-0, he defeated Bonasera 8-2, and he defeated McKernan 16-9

Section 11 – Dean Renna (Kings Park) 
CHSAA – Paolo Ciatto (Iona Prep)
PSAL – Justin Lee (Murrow)

138 Pound Preview
Excellent weight class but all signs are pointing towards a showdown between Section 11 champ LaMorte and Section 9 champ Brown. Both wrestlers are returning state place winners with LaMorte taking 4th at 132 last year while JB placed 5th at 138. LaMorte defeated Brown 3-0 at the Eastern States on his way to the title. Brown wrestled back to take 3rd at the ESC; that loss was his only of the season! Bonasera’s only two in-state losses were to LaMorte and Brown at ESC so he’s definitely a contender as is Goss whose only on mat loss this season was to D2 stud Noto. Look for Mathews from S6 and Russo from S5 to make some noise here too!

Greiner and Brady
Section 9 Finals

145 Pound Section 9 Champion
Luke Greiner (Minisink Valley, junior)
Season Record: 36-6
Greiner’s Record Against the Bracket: 2-1
Greiner’s Results Against the Bracket: Luke defeated Carlin 4-0, was defeated by Leverich 6-3, and pinned Brady 3:03

Section 11 – Anthony Avitabile (East Islip) 
CHSAA – Maxwell Watson (Iona Prep)
PSAL – Amir Avazov (James Madison) 

145 Pound Preview
Section 6 champion Cameron Catrabone is the favorite at 145 D1. Catrabone was an Eastern States Classic champion, placed 2nd at Powerade, 3rd at the Beast of the East, and is currently ranked 12th in the nation by FloWrestling. Although he’s the favorite, Catrabone has been tested this season and will be pushed here at the NYSPHSAA tournament. VanOrden lost by a 3-1 margin to Catrabone at ESC. In the same tournament, Carlin only lost to him 4-0. Montalvo majored Carlin in the S2 finals so he’s clearly in the conversation as is Watson from Iona Prep who has an impressive 37-1 record. Section 11 champ Leverich is very tough and so is Greiner from Minisink Valley. This will be a great weight to follow!

Filip and Charlot square off in
S9 finals

152 Pound Section 9 Champion
Zack Filip (Minisink Valley, freshman)
Season Record: 31-5
Filip’s Record Against the Bracket: 2-1

Section 11 – CJ Jones (Half Hollow Hills East) 
CHSAA – Eric Grant (Iona Prep)
PSAL – Dwayne Harris (Grand Street Campus)

152 Pound Preview
There are definitely some very talented wrestlers in this bracket however the favorite going into the tournament has to be Casper Stewart from Section 5. Stewart is a perfect 47-0 and won the Eastern States Classic this year, however he was pushed into overtime by Volpe from Section 11 in the ESC finals. A rematch between the two could very well wind up being the state finals but Eric Grant from Iona Prep may have something to say about that. Grant has a perfect 53-0 record this year and that includes a 15-0 tech fall over the Section 1 champ Wierl. Section 4 champ Donavan Smith was a D2 state finalist last year when he wrestled for Tioga so he’s one to watch and Section 8 champ Lichter has an unblemished record at 23-0 so he’s going to be in the hunt as well!

Reed and Morgan
Section 9 Finals

160 Pound Section 9 Champion
Tyler Reed (Cornwall, senior)
Season Record: 39-2
Reed’s Record Against the Bracket: 3-1

Section 11 – Stephen Coleman (East Islip) 
CHSAA – Sean Degl (Iona Prep)
PSAL – Shaydon Bernadskiy (Tottenville)

160 Pound Preview
This weight class should be a war! There are several wrestlers in the bracket who have the potential to win this weight class on any given day. S2 champ Gregory placed 3rd at ESC and has no losses to anyone in the field plus he has wins over Reed, Mattei, Coleman, and Morgan. Reed only lost to Gregory 5-4 utb so he is definitely in the mix and so is Mattei from Section 8 whose only two losses this season were by forfeit at the Eastern States Classic. Degl is tough and will contend here as will Clohecy from Section 3 who is currently undefeated.

Section 11 – Aaron Nelson (William Floyd) 
CHSAA – Nick Matos (St. Anthony’s)
PSAL – Aidan Gubarev (James Madison)

172 Pound Preview
Several very good wrestlers here at 172 but the two returning state place medalists are the two favorites going into the tournament. Section 5 champ Brady Unger placed 3rd last year at 160 and is a perfect 42-0 going into this year! Section 9 champion Andrew Filip placed 4th last season up at 189 and is 41-3 this season with two losses at Ironman and his other loss was at the ESC finals to Woodward. Soriano and Corwin from Section 8 are definitely two wrestlers worth watching here and Section 11 champion Cunningham is definitely a high medal contender.

Ryder and Pennell could both medal this year in Albany!

Zack Ryder (Minisink Valley, junior)

PSAL – Dylan Pipitone (Tottenville)

189 Pound Preview
Ryder is a 2X NYS Champion, NYS Journeyman Champion, U17 World Bronze Medalist in freestyle, and is currently ranked #3 in the nation….yeah he’s the favorite here! Ryder’s biggest challenge will likely come from a Section 5 champ Elijah Diakomihalis who placed 3rd in NYS last season and was the Eastern States Classic champion this year, however we can rule out Sectio 8 champ Carlson as a potential finalist. Carlson placed 3rd in NYS last season and is undefeated this year – however he did not wrestle at ESC. Bonsu from S8 is also a likely medalist here as are Pennell, Berisha, and Sanchez!

215 Pound Preview
Section 9 champ Ethan Gallo is the clear favorite here. Gallo was last year’s state champion at this weight, he placed 2nd at the ESC, and is currently ranked 13th in the nation by FloWrestling. Section 2 champ Insogna has been defeated twice by Gallo however one of the matches was a 6-1 decision back in December so he’s definitely a contender here as is Section 8 champ Velsquez who placed 6th at ESC. Section 5 champion Kasper was not at ESC this year however he is sporting a 41-0 record and will be in the mix along with Files, Tibbs, and Abjandadze.

285 Pound Preview
Several outstanding wrestlers here but we might be looking at a rematch of this year’s Eastern States Classic final! In that match, Section 9 champion Monchery, who placed 5th in NYS last season, pinned Section 11 champ Regis who was a 2022 state finalist! Hotaling from Section 2 has lost only twice this year, once to Monchery and once to a D2 wrestler, so he’s a contender as is the other S2 entry Groncki from Mohonasen. The Section 3 champ Belmonte is an undefeated freshman so he’s going to be one to watch as are Carlsen, Bradley, and Garibaldi!

Section 9 Division 1 Wrestling Tournament Recap

Minisink Valley’s Section 9 Finalists
All nine have qualified for the state championships in Albany!

The 2023 Section 9 Division 1 Wrestling Championships have come to an end and once again Minisink Valley has come away victorious with another dominating performance. The Warriors sent nine wrestlers to the finals, crowned six champions and amassed an impressive 323.5 points to run away with the team title. The Most Outstanding Wrestler Award was given to Minisink Valley junior Zack Ryder who won the title at 189 pounds. Ryder, now a 4X Section 9 Champion, will be looking for his 3rd state title. Keep in mind that there was no Section 9 or State Tournament in 2021 due to covid. Ryder’s teammate Ethan Gallo took home gold at 215 pounds, and he is now a 3X Section 9 champion. Saturday’s tournament also saw six other wrestlers take home their 2nd Section 9 title. Luke Satriano from Valley Central, Anthony Tresch from Minisink Valley, Jordan Brown from Monroe Woodbury, Luke Greiner from Minisink Valley, Andrew Filip from Minisink Valley, and Stephan Monchery from Middletown are all now 2X Section 9 champions! We also have a few other wrestlers who are now multiple time state qualifiers. Cooper Merli from NFA, Rocco Futia from Wallkill, Wyatt Boice from Minisink Valley, Zak McKernan from Minisink Valley, Tyler Reed from Cornwall, Braydon Pennell from Pine Bush, Bryson Tibbs from Middletown, and Rahmier Bradley from Middletown are all making their second trip to the NYSPHSAA Championships in Albany on February 24th and 25th!
