Four earn wild-cards
Four area wrestlers received at-large berths to the Division II state wrestling tournament, which runs Feb. 22-23 at the Times-Union Center in Albany.
Three hail from Unatego as Codie Nichols (145 pounds), Kevin Thayer (152) and Leland Slawson (160) advanced after top-three finishes in their respective weight classes during the Section Four D-II Tournament at the Broome County Arena in Binghamton last Saturday.
Thayer and Slawson earned runner-up finishes and Nichols placed third for the Spartans, who have an automatic state qualifier in 182-pound Section Four D-II champion Ryan Marszal.
Mike Beers, who fell to Marszal in the 182-pound sectional final, rounds out the area at-large selections. Also a wild-card pick last season, Beers will join teammate and 113-pound sectional champion Dylan Wood at states.
Other Section Four Division II wild-card picks are Odessa-Montour’s Joe Rorick (106), Maine-Endwell’s Kobe Garrehy (113), Whitney Point’s Sean Ballard (120) and Jordan Torbitt (145), and Marathon’s Dillon Hurlbert (220).
Marzsal and Wood were two of five area wrestlers who won sectional titles last weekend for automatic state berths. Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton teammates Chris Cirigliano (106) and Mark Viviano (195) won Section Four D-II crowns last Saturday, when Cooperstown’s Mikey Boyle earned the 120-pound Section Three D-II title at Onondaga Community College.
