Big thanks to our friend Phil Strum from the Poughkeepsie Journal, who contributed a couple of videos of his Dutchess guys. My camera only holds two hours worth of video, and with the lack of pins today, it would have been impossible for me to get every match.

  1. Any of you notice how bad the officiating was on grippis match??? If he had a half decent ref that match would be completely different and I believe Grippi could’ve pulled it out. Also, with fays match too!! Those refs blew a possible 2 section titles! Horrible officiating the season

  2. It’s a shame the Journal News won’t provide Vince with a real camera and a camera man to video the finals. Then Vince could interview the wrestlers after the matches. It’s a “one man show” and Vince trys to do it all. I would think for something as important as the Section I finals, the “elcheapo” Journal News could help Vince out.
