SCARSDALE, N.Y. Jacob Berkowitz made it a hat trick at the Scarsdale Wrestling Tournament, Saturday.
The Scarsdale senior won his third consecutive Scarsdale title and was named most outstanding senior wrestler, leading the Raiders to a third-place finish behind runner-up Yorktown and champion Garden City.
Berkowitz, the 2011 Section 1 Division I 171-pound champ, remained undefeated on the season. Following a first-round bye, Berkowitz registered a pin and technical fall. He punctuated his day with a 9-3 win over Pawlings Oliver Mold in the final.
Winning this year along with the most outstanding senior award was a great way to finish at our tournament, Berkowitz said. I was also pleased with the way I was able to chain wrestle.
Lately, I had not been feeling well, but I felt well today and I thought it showed in my wrestling.
John Tambunting won the 132-pound title with a 3-2 win over Yorktowns Kyle Santucci and Joe Koshakow claimed the 138-pound crown with a 6-4 win over Pearl Rivers Joe McDonagh.
Jacob Feingold (160) had the quickest pin of the tournament 10 seconds in his first-round match.
