SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – High school wrestling action continued this past weekend, and the Arthur L. Johnson High School Crusaders placed sixth overall in the NJSIAA District 12 wrestling tournament that took place on Friday and Saturday at South Plainfield High School.

Sophomore Christopher Fuschetto advances to the next round of the state tournament with a first place finish in the 126 lb. weight class. He holds a 33-0 record on the season and a career record of 66-4.  This is Fuschetto’s second trip to the Region 3 tournament, and he goes in as the No. 1 seed in his weight class.

“Chris is very physical and intense,” Coach Michael Siter said of Fuschetto’s style. “Chris makes wrestling look easy when he is on the mat."
