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.

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
