We hear from wrestling coach Chris Cardella that this past weekend the Walt Whitman wrestling team had 9 athletes represent them at the New York State Freestyle and Greco Roman Championships, held in Binghamton, New York.  This was a very competitive tournament where athletes test their skills in the two styles of wrestling that are used in the Olympics.

This was the first time Whitman was represented in this tournament in over a decade.  We are happy to report that our wrestlers earned some well-deserved medals at the tournament. Earning All-State honors in freestyle were Kevin Romano, Terron Robinson, and Peter Marion.  Earning All-State honors in Greco Roman were Terron Robinson and Javier Dubon. “The coaching staff and I couldn't be more proud of our athletes and the hard work each of them put in to prepare themselves for this two day tournament,” said Coach Cardella.
