                                      LONG ISLAND TOP WRESTLERS


    
Another top tier of talented LI wrestlers include returning county champions John Arceri (37-2) of Huntington at 106 and Nassau's MOW winner Owen Bachelder (29 wins) of Hewlett at 126 pounds, both are sophomores, and will seek medals at the 2014 state meet. Also in the mix are 11 Division I county finalists that are solid contenders in the upcoming season. David Yablans (106) of Jericho, Chris Donnelly (39-4) of Island Trees at 113, Adam Smith (42-6) of East Meadow at 120, ESM's Jimmy Leach (32-9) a senior at 132 and sophomore standout Chris Mauriello (41-3) of Hauppauge in the 138-pound class.

     Also to watch are Wantagh senior
Nick Vines at 145, gridiron star Erik Adon (38-6) of perennial power East Islip at 160, Plainedge's Robert Ng (36-5) at 182, Nick Weber (33-2) of Kings Park at 195, Anthony Puca (31-3) of Huntington and Farmingdale's Bryan Tenny (39-5) of Farmingdale at 285 pounds.

     Division II champions feature top Locust Valley grapplers;
Bryan Coll (106), the Dusold brothers, Hunter (27-9) at 113 and Mike (34-7) at 152, Jordan Formicola (170), along with Yamique Webb (182) and Clarke senior Tom Stole at 126 and CSH's Robert Incorvia at 285 pounds.

     Other top
CHSAA returnees are junior Christian Briody (33-7) of Chaminade at 120, along with  St. Anthony's teammates, John Twomey (36-5) at 113 and junior Ben LaMantia (36-5) in the 120 weight class.

     Looking for redemption in the 2013-2014 season are a myriad of all-county matmen that include lightweights,
Peter Pappas (Plainview), Zach Ancewicz (John Glenn), both at 106, a trio of 113-pounders, junior Kyle Scully (Newfield), Danny Murray (Brentwood) and James Szymanski (SWR), along with Nick Rondino (Syosset), Tim Johnson (Harborfields), Southside's Mike Petrone and SWR's county qualifier Jack Taddeo, all at 120 pounds.  

    
Talented middleweights are Austin Munro (Hauppauge), John Sherlock (Mepham), Huntington's Corey Jamison, Islip junior Brad Wade, Tom Reina (Garden City), along with All-League selections, Anthony Messina (Sachem East) and Don Donnelly of Ward Melville. That group should fall into the 126/132 pound weight classes. Possible 138/145-pound contenders could be James Matias (Rocky Point), Sean O'Hagan (Sachem North), juniors, Jake Einbinder (Bethpage) and Gino Titone (Connetquot), along with Jack Reina (Garden City), Dave Brown (Farmingdale) and Luke Attisani of Bay Shore.

     Potential county finalists at 152 pounds are
Jakob Restrepo (Sachem East), Dennis Ferro (42-6) of EI, Brandon Aviles (Newfield) and senior Zach Lugo of Deer Park. Other top prospects include Michael Pistone (Sachem East), Willy Jacobs (Uniondale), qualifier Brandon Mendez (Huntington) at 160 and highly-touted Mark Tracy (32-8) of Sachem East in the 171- pound class.

     Rounding out the top upperweights, look for Islip's All-League
Ronnie King (33-4), county placers, Jason White (32-6) of Jericho, and Charles Bachmeir (Bethpage), along with sophomore county qualifier Christian Araneo (Ward Melville). They will most likely fill the 170/ 182 pound classes. The top returnees at 195 are Cristian Nunez (36-6) of Sachem East, Craig Hinrichs (29-7) of Islip and senior Devin Doran (William Floyd). At 220 pounds should be Rob Oliver (Plainedge), Edien Hincappie (Mineola) and all-league Sean Ferguson of Rocky Point. The stalwarts at 285 pounds are Massapequa's Tim Gungor (32-6) and Vinny Manna of Island Trees.
