RCK Duals results



The Roy C. Ketcham Dual Meet Tournament concluded last night, with Section 8’s Colonie edging out Arlington for a title. There were only four local teams in the field — Arlington, John Jay-EF, East Ramapo and Ketcham — but Ketcham coach Joe Warren sent me some tidbits that I wanted to share.

Final standings
1. Colonie, 5-0
2. Arlington, 3-2 (beat Kingston, Goshen and New Paltz; lost to Colonie and RCK)
3. Washingtonville, 4-1
4. Kingston, 4-1
5. John Jay-EF, 3-2 (beat Highland, Goshen and East Ramapo; lost to Washingtonville and Colonie)
6. Goshen, 2-3
7. Ketcham, 3-2 (beat Arlington, New Paltz and East Ramapo; lost to Goshen and Kingston)
8. East Ramapo, 1-4 (beat Highland; lost to Colonie, Washintonville, JJEF and RCK)
9. Highland, 1-4
10. New Paltz, 0-5

Arlington took second because it won its pool based on tiebreakers, but it’s definitely notable that the Admirals lost to Ketcham. I currently have Arlington ranked as the second-best dual meet team in Section 1 behind North Rockland, but the Indians pulled out a 42-39 upset win. CLICK HERE to see the box score, which shows that the Admirals were missing a couple of starters.

Here are a few other notes that Warren passed along:

• John Jay-EF’s Jay Albis (113) was the lightweight MOW, Ketcham’s Danny Murphy (145) was middleweight MOW and John Jay-EF’s Brett Perry (182) was heavyweight MOW. Each went unbeaten. 

• Albis and Brady Robin from Arlington both beat Golan Cohen from Colonie, who was fourth at states in Division 1 at 106 last year.

• East Ramapo’s Luke Francois (120) beat Austin Ingraham from Highland, who was sixth at states in Division 2 at 113 last year.

  1. Vince, where is your note that rck was missing a few starters as well? They had 4 starters out of the lineup for that match.

  2. They both gave up 3 forfeits in the dual. The difference being that Arlington usually has a full lineup whereas Ketcham cant fill their lineup. Every one of their duals they’ve had atleast 2 forfeits.

    Arlington is still the better team both dual and tourney. Duals have always been real close for the most part and a lot the guys train together at Ironman wrestling club in the summer.

  3. Arlington was without silveri 182 and chiricello at 45 which are big swings in the match although our 182 austin hassett is a good wrestler in his own right. We didnt have marvin big swing, but our 113 and 132 would face robin and tolli which wouldnt affect the score at all. Arlinton is a better team they nearly beat state ranked colonie in the finals 36-35.

    Like joe above said, our matches are always close, very friendly and most of the kids wrestle 8 months a year together. The rematch is wed, all the breaks went our way in that match, we will see how it plays out in 2 days. It also goes to show you that on any given day anything can happen. Fred perry does a great job with his team every year, those guys are tough.

    Also congrats to alfredo almedo and brett perry who recorded their 100th wins this weekend.
