EAST HANOVER, NJ- Two national ranking wrestling websites, Flowrestling and Intermat, have placed Hanover Park’s Nick Raimo as the sixth best wrestler in the nation at the 126lb weight class for the 2016/2017 season.
Raimo, only a 10th grader, has already been a two time winner in the Fargo Cadet Nationals held in S.D. were he finished 1st in the Freestyle and Grecco weight classes of 120lbs in 2015 and 126lbs in 2016.
Raimo is currently part of the Hornets’ 14th ranked squad in New Jersey. Hanover Park is also the top of Group 2 and Nick and his teammates are hoping to keep up the winning tradition that the program has created.
Raimo has another advantage with his Head Coach, James LaValle, being a former N.J. three time state champ and giving him advice. Currently Nick's season record stands at 10-1, along with a second place finish in the Beast of the East Tournament held in Delaware last month.
