CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Edgemont entered the Section 1 Division II Dual-Meet Championships back at full strength, which was bad news for the opposition. The Panthers defeated Dobbs Ferry, 60-26, in a quarterfinal then handled Irvington, 68-15, Wednesday, advancing to the final of the inaugural Division II Dual-Meet tournament.
Edgemont will host Nanuet Monday at 4:30 p.m. for the title.
In preparation for this tournament, Edgemont competed in the Tony Carlucci Dual-Meet Tournament last weekend. The Panthers found themselves in the same pool with Division I powers Fox Lane, the eventual champion, and Monroe-Woodbury of Section 9. Edgemont finished sixth, but was without a few starters due to injury or illness.
We felt we did pretty well, considering we were missing some of our starters, senior Danny Kornberg said. We got the experience we needed. We wrestled hard matches, especially against Fox Lane and Monroe-Woodbury. When we wrestled Monroe-Woodbury, we had one of our best matches.
When Edgemont returned to practice, Monday, the Panthers went to work, readying themselves Wednesday.
Wrestling against Fox Lane and Monroe-Woodbury, we watched the video to see what we needed to work on, Kornberg said. Once we did this, we made the adjustments and had good practices for this.
