Since taking over in the 2017-2018 season, Lourdes has had two Section One champions (Chris DiMeglio 19’ and Lucca Ardovini 18’). According to McHale, “We are possibly looking at three more this year alone.”
Currently, four athletes are ranked in Section One, Division 2 schools:
Jackson Wainwright 1st - 113lb weight class
Riley McHale 1st - 138lb weight class
Joe Krauza 1st - 182lb weight class
Predrag Skumpia 3rd - 194lb weight class
More notable achievements this season also include:
- Riley McHale and Joe Krauza are ranked in the top 14 of the NYS D2 Schools.
- Riley McHale leads the team with 28 wins, 22 pins, and 2 Tournament Championships. Riley was also recognized as the MOW (Most Outstanding Wrestler) of the Eric D’Agnese tournament where he had ZERO points scored upon him. Overall this season, Riley leads the team in having the fewest points scored upon him.
- Joe Krauza and Jackson Wainwright have also both won a tournament championship.
The program is in the planning stage of creating an off-season training program to keep the existing wrestlers training all year and invite prospective wrestlers to the program. Contact Coach McHale at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
