                       CHAMINADE WINS SIXTH NYSCHSAA TITLE
                                          By Jim & Tony Nordland

      Chaminade HS won their sixth consecutive NYSCHSAA team title as they amassed 247 points to edged runner-up Monsignor Farrell who finished with 228 at the Activity-Athletic Center. Rounding out the top teams were St. Anthony's (215.5), Kellenberg (149) and Fordham Prep with 138. The Flyers crowned three champions among their four finalists and were paced by seniors, Joe Petrone (145), Carl Petrocelli (152) and Joe Maggio at 171 pounds. Both Petrone and Maggio needed the overtime period to win their titles and Petrocelli scored three near fall points in the third period for a 5-2 decision. At 135 pounds, Ryan Conway (Chaminade) dropped a close decision to Kellenberg's Andrew Pappas. Pappas (33-8), a junior, avenged the loss to Conway in the league finals and earned his championship in dramatic fashion. Pappas trailed 5-0, but rallied as he scored three near fall points at the end of the second period, and in the waning seconds of the match fought off a Conway switch to hold on for a close 7-5 victory. Kellenberg's Ricky Derival also won a CHSAA crown, as he scored a first period fall to claim the 285-pound class. Monsignor Farrell garnered four individual crowns, including Connor Hanafee's solid 8-1 decision over Division II finalist Grant Greene (St. Anthony's) at 112, and Kevin Hartnett's impressive 8-5 verdict over tough Taylor Golba's (St. Joe's Collegiate) at 119 pounds. St. Anthony's had two champions, Chris Brienza (96) and three-time champion Joe Calderone at 140 pounds. Calderone, a senior, who is ranked amongst the top 140-pounders on Long Island  hopes to claim his first state medal at the NYS Intersectional Championships. Earning the OSW Award were co-winners; Andrew Lenzi (130) of Fordham Prep and Holy Trinity's Jules Doliscar at 160 pounds. Doliscar also received the Most Falls in the Least Time as he recorded three in 5:01 in the championship bracket, including the quickest pin of the championships, a 10 second fall in the first round.

MAT NOTES...
   Chaminade head coach George Dlugolonski now has won 16 CHSAA team titles over the past 35 years and this year has won the triple crown; "dual meet, league and the state championship." Kellenberg's Andrew Pappas hails from a wrestling family as his dad, Tom, was a two-time Suffolk County finalist at Amityville HS. His uncle, Peter, his father's twin brother, won the Suffolk title in 1969 and competed in the state tournament, which was held at the RIT Fieldhouse in Rochester.
