About the Wrestling Program

I am proud to report that the Storm King Wrestling Team finished in 7th place at the State Championship Tournament on Saturday at Brooklyn Poly Prep. The tournament consisted of the top teams in NYSAIS, the New York State Association of Independent Schools. Our boys scored 89 points which left us only 6 points shy of reaching our goal of a top 5 finish. The wrestlers exhibited excellence and elegance prompting the tournament director Jim Regan from Martin Luther School to remark as to how well the Storm King Boys represented themselves and the entire Storm King community. Storm King won as many places as any other school including champion Brooklyn Poly Prep, Dalton School, Trinity School, and Long Island Lutheran School. The following boys won medals in the tournament:

Sebastian Zucker 2nd place
Alex Gillespie 3rd Place
Carlos Regueral 3rd place
Nick Budich 3rd place
Ricky McMahon 4th place
Milo Crosby 4th place
Can Tetik 5th place
Mark Katz 5th place
Misha Medvedev 6th place
Uzay Polat 6th place

Ten of the thirteen boys entered in the tournament placed which is unprecedented for our program. Igor Zelenko, Igor Kilimpsov, and Emmanuel Davis wrestled valiantly in defeat turning in some of their best performances of the year against New York’s top competition. The coaches and I are proud of the efforts of our guys, not only for their grit under very difficult circumstances, but also for the grace under pressure that every boy exhibited. Six boys qualified for the National Prep Qualifier at Blair Academy next week.
