ROSELLE PARK, NJ --  Roselle Park became only the second high school wrestling program to win 1,000 matches when it beat the Raiders, 44-23, in a match originally scheduled to be held at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School.

Roselle Park's lighter weight wrestlers led the day, as Michael Fleck was the only Raider below the 170 weight class to win his match. Fleck and Nick Palazzolo were the only Scotch Plains-Fanwood wrestlers to win by pin at the match. 

With the loss, the Raiders dropped to 9-4. They will host Kenilworth next Friday, Jan. 26 at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School.
