Red Hook Wrestling couldn’t break through at the 2012 NYSPHSAA Wrestling Tournament held in Albany’s Times Union Center. All three of Red Hook’s grapplers, two juniors and a senior, dropped their opening quarterfinal matches and were overwhelmed in wrestlebacks.
Declan Dwyer-McNulty, wrestling for the Raiders at 113, lost to 4th seeded William Koll in a third minute pin and went on to lose in a 16-1 Technical Fall to Stony Brook High’s Hunter Hulse. Red Hook’s 170 pounder Mike Rauch was beaten in his quarterfinal match, 16-0, by Frewsburg’s Nick Mitchell, but won a tight second elimination match against Ogdensburg’s Andrew Cole before being bounced out by Brad Burns of Hoosick Falls, 8-2.
Ricky Treu, wrestling at 145, dropped his opening match to Clifton’s Jake Demmon and lost a close match to match to Jordan Farnmicola of Locust Valley.
