Here are the results from the tournament at Pearl River today. It’s been a long day, so I’ll keep it short and sweet. Warwick was really impressive, as was the Nyack duo of Thakur and Marchese. There were some really exciting matches in the finals as well. Off to sleep… Read More →

Harold Gutmann has more… Read More →

I know people were interested in this result, so I called up Bill Swertfager and got the box. He said Monroe-Woodbury is really tough, which is no surprise considering they dominated the Section 9 dual-meet tourney thoroughly. Monroe-Woodbury 51, John Jay 16 At John Jay 125 — Watterson (JJ) major… Read More →

Well, after a long day I’m about to hit the sack. But first, here are the results from the Tiger Tournament today. Obviously I wasn’t there, because as many times as I’ve tried to make it happen with my mind, I can’t be at two places at once. So for… Read More →
