Seahawks Win 1 in Commack Duals
Cold Spring Harbor’s varsity wrestling team found some success at the Commack Duals on Saturday, Jan. 11 with one close, 39-36 win over Central Islip.
In their first match of the tournament at the 120-pound weight class, Eric Zhou got an 11-4 decision win for the Seahawks.
Christian Tartaglia followed up, wrestling in the 126-pound weight class, and came out with a 9-3 decision win.
Things quickly started looking down for Cold Spring Harbor when Central Islip won five matches in a row, but then Eric Hansen and Alex Kaley both came out victors for the Seahawks in their duals.
The next few matches went back and forth, with Robert Incorvaia grabbing a win for the Seahawks.
Chris Mormile, Christian Phillips, and Jamie Schubauer won the last three duals of the meet to secure Cold Spring Harbor’s victory.
Although the Seahawks lost their next three meets of the Commack Duals, a few of their wrestlers did find individual success.
Incorvaia won all four of his matches of the tournament including 3 pins. He pinned Commack’s Jake Feigenbaun in 3minutes and 4 seconds. In Cold Spring Harbor’s meet against Half Hollow Hills West, he pinned Brandon Ottomano in 4 minutes and 56 seconds. And to finish his day, he pinned Dylan Gilks of Westhampton in 1 minute 16 seconds.
Head Coach Mike Ferrugiari said at the beginning of the season that Incorvaia would be a key component to the team, and he has proven so thus far.
Kaley recorded three out of four wins on the day. Tartaglia, Hansen, Mormile and Phillips each went home with two wins in the tournament.
They Seahawks wrestled against Carle Place on Wednesday night. Scores were unavailable by press time.
They are headed to Locust Valley High School tonight for a meet, starting at 6 p.m., and will host a tournament on Saturday, scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
