NY Wrestlers Win Titles at MAWA Eastern Nationals

By BV, 05/10/17, 8:30AM EDT


A large contingent of New York wrestlers headed to the MAWA Eastern Nationals over the weekend.

Several of them drove back to the Empire State with titles, including four competitors in the Junior division - August Hibler (Pound Ridge), Braidon Woodward (Canisteo), Logan Haseley (Niagara Falls) and Jared Bilinski (Dolgeville).

Hibler recorded a pair of pins, a major and a 2-0 decision in the title bout.  Woodward was similarly dominant, with a major and a fall in his first two matches, before two decisions with a combined score of 13-2.  Meanwhile Haseley compiled a 3-0 mark with a 5-2 finals victory, while Bilinski registered two pins and two decisions to win Junior 140.

Also going unbeaten were a pair of grapplers in the Intermediate group - Brody Oleksak of Afton and Todd DeGroat of Vestal.

Oleksak began with a major before two more victories, including an overtime triumph in the finals at Intermediate 120. DeGroat pinned his way through the event, with none of his matches lasting longer than 2:02.

Meanwhile, multi-time state qualifier Trentyn Rupert (Berkshire) and Rich Brown (Islip Terrace) notched first place in Advanced and Open action, respectively.

Rupert won by fall in two of his three bouts, while Brown also captured three wins, including two in sudden victory.
