Philipsburg, N.J. - Two Bloomfield Bengals placed in the District 9 wrestling tournament yesterday. Senior Danel Felix placed 3rd in the 132lbs. weight class. Junior Xavier Gulley placed 2nd in the 285lbs. weight class. Both wrestlers now move on the regions which take place in West Orange starting Wednesday. The top 4 place winners in each weight class there then move on to Atlantic City the following weekend. Coach Ryan Smircich was very proud of not only the 2 place winners but his whole team. " We have 28 freshman and sophomores on the team while only graduating one senior," Smircich told Tapinto Bloomfield. "Xavier wrestled tough in the semi final round against a Philipsburg opponent."
