CHATHAM, NJ - Connor Cortese notched pins at both 120 pounds and 132 and Will Larkey posted a win for Chatham in its triangular meet vs. Franklin and Highland Park on Saturday.

The undermanned Cougars, who are very thin at the heavier weights, lost to both Franklin and Highland Park, but the Chatham wrestlers who did take the mat for first-year coach Frank Siclari performed well.

Sophomore Cortese, who normally wrestles at 120, took on Highland Park's 132-pounder and won the fall in just 54 seconds, improving his record to 7-1.
