Both Yorktown and Lakeland/Panas earned their spots at
the sectionals, by virtue of impressive divisional performances,
at the Division III championships at John Jay High School on
Saturday, Feb. 8.
Yorktown quali ed seven of their grapplers for the sectionals,
including senior captain Andrew Finateri (120 pounds), who
placed rst at John Jay.
“It meant a lot to me because it was actually my rst time
placing rst at divisionals,” Finateri said. “I wrestled as well as I
did because I stuck to the plan my coaches put out for me, and
it resulted in great wrestling.”
Huskers’ Joe Tornambe (99, third), Chris Constantine (99,
fourth), Marc Pisani (132, third), John Falcone (132, fourth),
Dean Patierno (145, third) and Dillon Carter (152, fourth) also
quali ed for the sectionals.
Yorktown coach Eric Fama said that focus and hard work over
the course of the season has allowed his squad to continually
“We are proud of the kids who quali ed,” Fama said. “ ey
worked hard all year. We still have more work to do to nish the
season strong. Four out of seven kids will be returning next year
(Tornambe, Constantine, Falcone and Carter).”
Last year, the Huskers sent just ve wrestlers to sections,
“It’s great that we are sending seven people to sectionals [this
year],”Finateri said,because it “shows the program is improving.”
Lakeland/Panas had six of their grapplers qualify for the
sectionals based on their performance at John Jay. ey are
Gio Russo (113, rst), Austin Bergen (126, second), Connor
McGannon (182, third), Charlie Dubrawski (220, third), Pat
Hickey (285, third) and Spencer Maja (106, fourth).
Rebel coach Dave Bergen said having six wrestlers qualify for
sectionals is an improvement on last year’s result.
“We only got four guys through last year and two of them
graduated,” Dave Bergen said. “We have two guys (Russo and
Hickey), that are going back and four going for the rst time.
ese kids have been working hard and they earned their spots.
I am proud of all of them.”
Practice and good teammates put the Rebels in position to
perform as well as they did at John Jay.
“We have been really focused this past week,” Dave Bergen
said. “Everyone pushing each other to work harder and be ready.
We had a great regular season and it allowed us to be prepared
to compete today.”
Austin Bergen said it meant a lot to place second at divisionals.
“Last season, I couldn’t even make top four, so it really is a
big improvement,” Austin Bergen said. “I was able to wrestle so
well today because of my focus on this tournament all week at
practice and working hard every day to sharpen my technique.”
Lakeland/Panas (14-8) nished their regular season with a
54-27 loss at Putnam Valley on Feb. 4.
Joshua Frogel (99, forfeit), Niko Rezaj (145, pin), Declan
Fullerton (170, pin), Charlie Dubrawski (220, pin) and Hickey
(285, 6-3 decision), registered wins for the Rebels against the
Yorktown (9-16) ended their regular season a day later at New
Rochelle, losing 64-13, with Tornambe (99, forfeit), Finateri

wins for the Huskers.
