Without much wrestling going on this week, the latest wrestling notebook focused on a strong early season showing from several teams in Rockland county. While there are only nine teams in the county, many of them are among the elite in Section 1. North Rockland looks like the favorite in D1, while Nanuet has assumed the same position in D2. In my recently released dual meet rankings, Clarkstown South, Clarkstown North and Tappan Zee also ended up in the top 10, while teams such as Suffern and Pearl River are knocking on the door. While the competition within the county has been top notch, the reason for such widespread success can be traced back to a collective effort to elevate the caliber of wrestling in Rockland.
