Berkowitz Wins Scarsdale Title, Senior Award

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 Pawling’s 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 Yorktown’s Kyle Santucci and Joe Koshakow claimed the 138-pound crown with a 6-4 win over Pearl River’s Joe McDonagh.

Jacob Feingold (160) had the quickest pin of the tournament – 10 seconds – in his first-round match.
