States: Friday’s results


The quarterfinals just ended, so I’m starting to upload my videos and write my story. It’s been a great day for locals in D1. Nine wrestlers punched their tickets to the semis, which will be held tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. Section 1 is in third place in D1 as of now, but we still have plenty of wrestle backs to get through today. There’s been less guys moving on in D2, with only three locals making their way into the semis. Section 1 is currently in ninth place in D2.

I’ll be back in a bit with videos and reaction, but here are all of the results involving locals through the first two rounds. For a look at full brackets in each division, go to That’s where you’ll be able to find wrestle back results as they come in.

  1. you would think Varian would learn that he needs to score points after the section finals. Anyone think he loses his next match without recording a takedown ??

    part of me said take it easy on a high school athlete, but sometimes things need to be said. Go out swinging kid, you need to try and score some points

  2. Yeah 40-4 defending section champ and a wildcard to states is terrible.. Think about what your saying

  3. his next match he went into OT again, the following match he scored 3pts in 3 periods so its possible he scored a takedown. He is going to need to be aggressive to win at states.

    I wouldn’t say he is terrible, he hasn’t done enough to prove whether he is or isn’t.

    Of course there are full wrestlebacks this is a real tournament, not run by Jenn Simmons and the rest of section 1. However looks like having our wrestlebacks removed has confused our wrestlers because we haven’t wrestled back very well. Top 5 finish does look to be in order. I dont understand though? we must be the only people losing to PSAL kids because they dont have many points but I think at least a few of our guys lost to PSAL guys. I believe I heard last year that PSAL hasn’t had a state champ ever ? or just not in MANY years ? if they have never had one, I wonder if this is the first time a PSAL kid has beat a defending state champ…

  4. Realbuto got cradled by a psal kid and the crowd was booing a questionable no call in the final seconds of the match where dangelo reversed/nearly reversed delacruz that would have sent it into OT

  5. if anyone boo’d it was probably Pearl River fans, they are horrible! always have horrible things to say, said some pretty disgusting stuff during the Section finals. Don’t ever make a mistake and let the PR fan base find out about it. They see Delacruz as a combination of Mike Tyson, Bin Laden, and Lebron James. He couldn’t be more hated.

  6. Rockland on the Rise on

    “C’mon Man” Why would the Pearl River Fans boo Delacruz. Muldoon already beat him twice this year. Muldoon”s only lose this year was to Dangelo. So I’m sure he would have loved to avenge that lose.

  7. Hackaliah Bailey on

    Wow Dylan lost to a psal league wrestler? Major upset! The psal wtesters generally do not have the polish to be competitive at thr State level.

  8. PSAL kids work very hard all year round. The Beat the Streets program is doing great things for NYC kids. Drawing a PSAL kid in states is no longer an easy match.

  9. sectiononealum on

    PSAL has some good kids, as a whole they aren’t the toughest section but they have alot of kids who train with beat the streets as coach rogers said, and some kids in that area travel to longisland clubs, and even go to NYAC
