Posted by Washingtonville Wizards Wrestling on Feb 10 2019 at 07:29AM PST

The Wizards crowned 2 Section 9 Champions for the first time since 1991. Wizard Captains, Andrew Marchese and Tommy Maddox punched their tickets to Albany to compete in the New York State High School Championship Tournament. Andrew Marchese took home the 99lbs Section title by taking a commanding lead over returning 2017 Section 9 Champion Colby Amell of Saugerties, before Amell made the decision not to continue in the 3rd period. Tommy Maddox defeated Josh Sam of Middletown by major decision, shutting out his opponent 11-0. Great job boys and good luck at States!
Also placing for the Wizards were the following Wrestlers:

Senior, Chris Zappolo – 120lbs – 5th place – Recorded his 100th career win
Senior, Kenny Fanning – 285lbs – 6th place – 1st time ever placing in the Section
