Wizards Wrestling Champs
The Wizards crowned two Section IX Champions for the first time since 1991. Wizard Captains Andrew Marchese and Tommy Maddox punched their tickets to Albany to compete in the New York State High School Championship Tournament. Marchese took home the 99lb Section title by taking a commanding lead over returning 2017 Section 9 Champion Colby Amell of Saugerties, before Amell made the decision not to continue in the 3rd period. Tommy Maddox defeated Josh Sam of Middletown by major decision, shutting out his opponent 11-0. Also placing for the Wizards were Chris Zappolo 120lbs, 5th place, with a 100th career win, and Kenny Fanning – 285lbs – 6th place – first time ever placing in the Section.
