SOMERS, N.Y.— Mahopac’s varsity wrestling team got its season started on the right track when it tied for second place in the 38th annual Eric D’Agnese Memorial Tournament at Somers Middle School on Dec. 3.

The round robin tournament featured a six-team field with champion Hauppauge, host Somers, Yorktown, Port Chester and Iona Prep.

“I was very pleased with the way we wrestled,” Mahopac coach Dennis DiSanto said. “We placed 10 in the top three and 12 in the top four.”

Senior Mike Muldoon led the way for the Indians, placing first at 120 pounds with a 4-0 record on the day.

“Mike was in control in every match and wrestled with a lot of confidence,” DiSanto said. “His conditioning is excellent and he is poised for a big season.”

Alex Rabinowitz (126 pounds, 4-1), Andrew Wright (160, 2-1), Tom Mahoney (170, 3-1), Jack McDonald (195, 3-1) and Joe Harney (220, 3-1) placed second for the Indians.

Garrett Semenetz (106, 4-1), Andi Berisha (113, 3-2), Tyler Roa (132) and Frankie Scauzillo (99) netted third-place finishes. Christian Brito (152, 3-2) and Nick Saeta (182) placed fourth.

“We made some mistakes we need to work on but we will improve as the season goes on,” DiSanto said. “For the first competition of the year we looked good.”

Mahopac will compete in the Section 1 Dual Meet Tournament with an opening round quad meet at Hendrick Hudson on Dec. 7. The other teams at the meet are host Hen Hud, Brewster and Fox Lane.

The Indians will also compete in the Yorktown Duals on Saturday, Dec. 10.

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
