The high school’s varsity wrestling team placed three wrestlers at the League V championships, held on Feb. 4 at Rocky Point High School.

Juniors Zach Cabrera, Stephen Donahue and Nick Picece all placed fourth overall, Cabrera in the 113-pound weight class, Donahue in the 160-pound and Picece in the 120-pound.

In one of the toughest weight classes in the tournament, Picece used a cross-face cradle on fifth seed William Smith of Rocky Point for the pin in 4:41 to complete a come-from-behind victory.

Cabrera pinned his first two opponents, including an exciting win in 2:23 over fifth-seeded Dakota Aguanno of Eastport-South Manor, to earn a spot in the L Robert “Doc” Fallot Memorial Suffolk County Wrestling Championship, held at Suffolk Community College’s Brentwood campus on Feb. 11 and 12.
