The following recap provided by Secaucus High School head wrestling coach :
The Secaucus HS wrestling team continues to improve each year and finished the 2017-2018 season with a record of 13-15. The team was led by freshman Carlos Triana (15-14), sophomore Alex Leon (29-3), sophomore Anthony Costantino (13-13), senior Louie Pinto (16-15), junior Derek Fernandez (18-14), senior Robinson Reyes (29-3), and senior Adam Badarelli (19-9).
- Reyes became the first wrestler since 2013 to win the Patriot Invitational Tournament.
- The team improved their win total to 13 this season.
- Reyes and Leon lead the team with 29 wins and are looking to get to the 30 win mark.
- The team qualified for the North 2 Group 1 State Sectional Championships as the sixth seed. They traveled to wrestle a tough third seeded Manville HS and lost 63-10. However, this has been the first time since 2009 that the HS wrestling team has qualified for the state sectionals.
After a successful dual meet season, the team will now begin the individual tournaments. Twelve wrestlers ended their season on Sunday at the Kinnelon HS Tournament. The varsity wrestlers will prepare for the District 12 Tournament at Livingston High School on Saturday, February 17.
Leon and Reyes are returning District medalists. All Secaucus wrestlers entering into the District Tournament will look to keep their season alive by coming in the top three and advancing on to the Regions and then to the State Championships in Atlantic City.
