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.
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:
• 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.
