Beacon results: Seven locals take first

12

Hello there. Dan DeFrancesco here checking in. I was up in Beacon today to cover the tournament. My full story will be in the paper tomorrow, but below are some notes:

-As mentioned up top, seven locals won their weight class.
-Horace Greeley’s Scott Wymbs 3-1 OT win against Kingston’s Deon Edmond in the 195-pound final not only earned him first, but also the Quakers all-time wins record. The senior, who entered the year with 87 wins, passed 2006 alum Greg Einfrank’s career-mark of 116.
-That wasn’t the only milestone of the day. Tappan Zee’s Desmond Djekovic earned his 100th win after defeating Kingston’s Dwayne Richards 13-5 in the 152 final. The achievement is even more incredible when you consider he had only seven wins as a freshman.
-Ossining’s Trent Lofaro upset Tappan Zee’s John Hartnett 7-4 in the 220 final. Lofaro, who hasn’t wrestled since Jan. 8th due to forfeits, lost to Hartnett 2-0 at the Irvington Invitational in Decemeber.
-Ossining’s 120-pounder Alex Delacruz cruised through the day, his “closest” match coming in 13-4 win against Jimmy Clark of Valley Central in the semifinals. The junior said he has already put last weekend’s biting incident behind him and is looking ahead to sectionals. While we’re on the topic, 145-pounder Steve Bencosme of Sleepy Hollow was disqualified during his semifinal match against Mark Milisci of Washingtonville for allegedly biting.
-Tappan Zee’s Mike Manni (285), Clarkstown North’s Colby Kash (138) and Byram Hills’ Jon Errico (106) rounded out the rest of the local winners.
-Really good final at 99. Arlington’s Alfredo Olmedo and Brady Robin had a great double-overtime battle. Robin, a freshman, eventually got the better of Olmedo, a junior.
-Also of note for Arlington, Nick Tolli (120) is officially done for the year. The junior will have surgery on his knee next week.
-While we are on the topic of injuries. Port Chester’s 106-pounder Kevin Rodriguez re-injured his knee during his semifinal bout with Brian Hong and was forced to drop out of the tournament. Rodriguez originally suffered the injury last weekend at the Eastern States Classic.
-Valley Central won the entire tournament, finishing with 201 points. They were followed very closely by Arlington (198) and Washingtonville (190). To be honest, it really came down to the Admirals and the Vikings. The two teams entered the finals tied, and were neck and neck until their final matches. Arlington ended up finishing with the most champions (3).

That’s it for now. Be sure to check out my story in tomorrow’s paper.

    During the semi finals, brian hong was winning 7/2 in the 3rd period before he got his injury. This is a major upset and could be something to look out for during sections.

  2. ChiefWildEagle on

    Congrats to Ossining’s Trent Lofaro for a statement 7/4 victory over Hartnet. Chief to start saving up wampum.

  5. Good win for wymbs. Got to give him and stabella credit. No one is running at 195 when both would be clear faviort at 220. This is setting up to be a good final at 195.

  6. odd weekend for sleepy. on

    Don’t see big frank anywhere, jimenez gets a big win but but two get DQ’d ?? Clean it up boys

  7. 195 and waiting on

    Huh,
    They both could drop to 182 and Sabella to 170 and win! Whats the point? We know that they are great wrestlers and are both staying at 195. The interesting point is how they both wrestled a section 9 champ close! Wymbs has a very good chance of beating Sabella. Anyone know how Sabellas knee is? I see he didn’t wrestle yesterday!

  8. wild red berries on

    Sabella is way too undersized to go 220 and place at the states. However, he has a legit shot to take the states at 195.
    Did Curanaj wrestle anywhere this weekend.
    Some Sleepy kids seem to be in disaray.
