Westchester County Championships
Sunday, Jan. 19 (Lincoln High School)
Somers/North Salem went home with four all-county wrestlers (top six) at the Westchester County Championships at Lincoln High School. The Tuskers also placed 10th out of 26 teams with 63 points.
“I feel we wrestled well overall but I don’t think we wrestled up to our potential,” coach Ron DiSanto said. “Some guys made small mistakes that cost them matches. Knowing that we weren’t at our best and still finished top 10 in the county was a good sign.”
Dominic Barrella, a North Salem eighth-grader, placed fourth at 99 pounds. He had a 5-1 lead in the semifinals but was pinned in the second period by Pleasantville’s Christian Perlleshi. Perlleshi went on to win the tournament.
“Dom has been having nosebleed problems so he has to wrestle wearing a protective mask,” DiSanto said. “It has been a challenging adjustment but he grinded through.”

BYSNS’ co-coach Joey Bonitatibus said he was extremely happy with his team’s performance, which saw it overcome two deficits, before Suchanek tied the game to force overtime.
“We were down two goals early, came back in the second period and tied it up,” Bonitatibus said. “We went down late in the third but never gave up and scored with half a second on the clock. Unfortunately one mistake in overtime caused the loss. I’m proud of this team for never giving up and putting their hearts into that game.”
The BYSNS are scheduled to return to action, 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, when they play rival Lakeland/Panas, at Brewster Ice Arena.
