Livingston Wrestlers Compete in State Tournament

NJSIAA Wrestling Championships in Atlantic City Credits: Tim LeCras

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ — Despite sending two participants to the NJSIAA state championship, Livingston High School failed to produce a podium finisher at high school wrestling’s highest stage.

Anthony Petrillo (38-2) brought his R3 region third place finish to the 126-pound division, and gave Livingston a brief moment of promise by winning his first bout on Friday over Anthony Donnadio of Hillsborough with an 8-5 decision. Immediately following his victory, though, Petrillo suffered a defeat at the hands one Cherokee’s Colin Wickramaratna in a tie-breaker. The final score resulted in a 5-4 decision. 

As Petrillo moved to the consolation bracket, he breathed life back into Livingston’s podium hopes, winning his first two matches. Petrillo ran into trouble again, losing his second match of the day and subsequently ending his season, to Nicky Cabanillas of DePaul in a 5-1 decision.

Newman entered the consolation bracket, where he suffered the same fate as his first match, losing to Cedar Grove’s Joseph McCarthy by a 14-5 major decision.
