KENILWORTH, NJ – Nicky Pallitto, a David Brearley Middle School Student, took first place in the 91 pound weight class and runner-up in the 96 pound weight class at the Nuway Winter Nationals held at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City. Coach Filiberto Colòn, a New Jersey standout wrestler and owner of the Colòn Trained Wrestling School in Belleville praised Pallitto’s almost flawless performance. “Nicky wrestled very tough having to wrestle competition up in weight. His hardwork he has been putting on the mat and in his strength training showed through his wrestling at AC Nationals." Colón stated that in his short coaching career so far, he hasn't coached a wrestler like Nicky at youth or high school level who can be told what combos to hit and then go hit them with near perfection on the mat. "I’m not only proud with his continuous success on the national level but his outstanding success in the classroom.”
