Warriors pull out Patriot wrestling title

— Mohonasen wrestling coach Sean Daley knew his Mighty Warriors had to take care of their own bus­iness in the finals Saturday if they were to overtake the host team for the team title at Schenectady’s Patriot Invitational.

“I felt pretty about the way the finals fell, starting at 99 and having two of our veteran seniors at the end,” said Daley. “And a little bit of help never hurts.”

Freshman Shiva Bhoge pinned in the 91 final, and senior Dom Notar won his final at 152, while Schen­ectady went 1-for-3 in championship matches, allowing Mohonasen to turn a two-point deficit into a 10-point advantage (199-189) in the final scoring.

“What also helped us was the two kids from Green Tech in the finals against Schenectady kids,” Daley said. “They beat one, and the other kid didn’t give up bonus points against Jerrell White. That, I didn’t expect.

“You need things like that, and things like Jeremy Merritt getting to his first final and winning it. There are so many little things that go into winning a tournament.”

Eric Pierone, Mohonasen’s lone champion last weekend at the Bristol (Conn.) Invitational, and Steve Shadick also got to the finals for the Mighty Warriors, who also had a third-place finish from Mahesh Bhoge at 113 and a pair of fourth-place showings.

“You need all of those points,” said Daley. “Eric ran into a good kid [Bethlehem’s Chris Tangora] in his [195-pound] final today.”

White was the lone champion for the host Patriots, who was joined by Ditaye Douglas (160) and Emanuel Zamora (220) in the finals.

“It means a lot, especially if it helps us win the team title on our home mats,” said White, a senior who ran his record to 25-3 when he beat Najee Collins-Coleman of Green Tech in the 170 final. “We pride ourselves in being a family.”

To that end, White is one of the upperclassmen who help coach the youth wrestlers in the Schenectady system.

“It’s important that this program continues, that it doesn’t go away when the seniors leave,” he said. “Wrestling is a tough sport. It’s not for everybody. We want to encourage the younger kids.”

White is setting his own goals high.

“I want to go to the state tourn­ament,” he said. “If you set a goal, it might as well be a big goal.”

“He’s very focused and wrestling very smart this year, said Schenec­tady coach Chad Languish. “And he’s always there when one of his teammates is wrestling. He’s setting a good example for the other kids, especially the younger ones. He’s like another coach.”

The Patriots finished well in the consolation round. Josh Reed (120), Mike Fuller (126), Alex Martinez (152) and Elijah Washington (195) all placed third.

“A lot of them did good things today,” said Languish. “It would have been nice to win it, but I thought we had a very good day.”

Niskayuna had three finalists and placed fourth, with senior Eric Steele winning at 145.

“We had two middle schoolers and a senior in the finals,” said Nisk­ayuna coach Shawn Neely. “That’s where we are right now.”

Seventh-grader Eoghan Sween­ey lost in the 113 finals when Ballston Spa’s Tyler Barnes, also a seventh-grader, scored a late takedown. Eighth-grader Anthony Laniewski got to the 126 finals.

“After watching the two younger guys lose their final, I wanted to win, and set an example for them, to show them that if they keep working hard, they can be successful,” said Steele, who is closing in on 100 varsity wins.

That milestone is on Steele’s to-do list this winter.

“I want to win sectionals,” said Steele, who beat Shadick, 7-0, for his 98th career win. “I’ve never won sectionals, and I really want to do that. Getting 100 wins is also important to me. It shows I’ve been able to stick with it, and have some success.”

Green Tech’s Sheldon Allen (160) and Mechanicville’s Adam Erno (132) earned the Most Outstanding Wrestler honors.

Erno pinned Bethlehem’s Alex Lasnik in the 132 final for his third tournament title this winter.

Allen, the Eagles first sectional place finisher, pinned Douglas midway through the 160-pound final.

“It’s so important for us to bring back trophies,” said Eagles coach Kashon Holmes. “We’re still trying to develop a program, and any success we have, it means we get one more kid to come out for the team, I’m happy.

“Sheldon was sixth in the sectionals last year, and we’re looking for him to do well again. And, hopefully. some of the others will do well, too.”

Nick Mears (106) gave Ballston Spa a second champion, and Johnstown’s Joe Nellis, a former sectional finalist, went to 20-1 as he pinned his way to the 220 title.

KELLEY WINS THIRD TITLE

Shenendehowa senior Nick Kelley won his third individual title, helping the Plainsmen to their third consecutive second-place finish at the Eastern States Classic.

Kelley, the top seed at 138 pounds, had three first-period pins, beat Virginia place finisher Derek Arnold, 3-2 in the semis and finished with a 9-1 victory over Connor Lopresi of Lansing, a reigning state DII champ.

David Almaviva (145) was third, Levi Ashley (182) placed fourth, and Zach Joseph took sixth at 182 for Shenendehowa, which totaled 111.5 points, second to Wantagh’s 138.5.

Columbia senior El Shaddai VanHoesen pinned Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk’s Alex Soutiere in the 285 final, a matchup of 2012 state finalists. Colonie’s Austin DiCerbo was third, losing only to VanHoesen.

DiCerbo’s effort helped the Garnet Raiders to a fifth-place finish. Fellow big men Wayne Burt (fourth, 195) and Jason Johnson (eighth, 220) also placed, and 106-pounder Golen Cohan finsihed fourth.

LaSalle’s Brendan Goldup placed third at 152, Amsterdam’s Brandon Lapi finished fifth at 132; Shaker’s Blake Retelll (120) and Duanesburg’s Jeff Senecal (195) both were seventh; and Joey Butler (138) of Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Nick Gallo (160) of Schalmont and Queensbury’s Franky Nassivera (170) all finished eighth.

Guilderland’s Josh Logiudice ran his record to 26-0 by pinning Calvin Call of the host team in the 99 final at the Mount Anthony (Vt.) tourn­ament. The 11th-grader had a bye and two first-period pins.

Mike Lainhart lost in the 106 final, Colton White was third at 170, and both Brian Knodler (138) and Ryan Harris (160) were fourth for the Dutchmen, who placed fifth.

Fourth-place Averill Park had on champions, but Allan McNeil (113) and Jimmy Pasquariello (160) were finalists.

Salem had champs in Carter Merecki (120) and Daniel VanDyk was third at 126.

Section II champ Joe Sprung was the 220-pound champion as Berne-Knox-Westerlo finished fourth at the Unatego Tournament. Sprung pinned Austin Dean of Sidney in the final.

Matt Farnan (285) was third, and both Jim McGill (160) and Cody Fisher (138) placed fourth.

Jake Anderson was second at 126, and Harrison Proctor third at 220 for Schuylerville.

Kyle Mulcahy lost a 9-2 dec­ision to Hilton’s Vincent Deprez in the 138 final for Corinth’s best individual showing at the Clayton Barnard tourney.

Cassidy White was third at 113 with an 8-2 win over Anderson Rivera of Greece, and Tyler Mulcahy placed fouth at 126.

Jimmy Devine (145) was named MOW for Columbia’s best effort in the Yonkers Tournament.

Chris Morrissey (160) second; Will Martin (170), Johnny Devine (99) and Ryan Hart took third; Cody Dubuque (195) was fourth; Eric Nielsen (182) placed fifth; and both Matt McHugh (138) and Tom O’Neil (126) placed sixth.

holmes nets 36

Mekeel Christian Academy sophomore Macie Holmes tied a program record with 36 points Friday night as the Lions posted a 63-52 Western Athletic Conference win over Middleburgh.

Holmes produced 19 in the second half, when the Lions overcame a 29-27 deficit. Sarah Child scored 36 points for Schenectady Christian School (later named Mekeel) during the 2007-08 season against Schenevus.

“Most of her points came when she penetrated on the right-hand side and did a little scoop move,” said Mekeel coach Tahara Pleasure. “She must have had 20 points alone with that. They couldn’t stop her.”

Emily Taplin added 11 points for Mekeel (2-3, 5-5), while Amanda Roney topped a trio of Middleburgh double-digit scorers with 21.
