Mineola Wrestlers Finish Season Strong

Written by Mineola American Staff Thursday, 20 March 2014 00:00

The Mineola Varsity Wrestling team had a strong finish to a good season. This is a young team that has only four seniors, with two coming into the year with one year experience between them. The real problem they had to overcome was that they were going to have to forfeit at least four weight classes every match, putting the team down by 24 points at the start of each dual meet.

 

This year’s team had no small boys joining the team so the 99, 106, 113 and the 121-pound weight classes went unfilled which give the opposing team six points for each weight. The boys finished the 9-9 with a team predominately made up of juniors.

 

The four seniors did a fine job led by team captain Jacob Escobar (19 wins) at 132 pounds, second-year wrestler Lorenzo Gulinao (15 wins) at 120 pounds and Milandip Toor at 145 pounds, who made it to the Nassau County finals. First-year wrestler Christian Martin had 12 wins at 285 pounds.
