Irvington Tournament
Saturday, Dec. 14

Barrella, a North Salem eighth-grader, placed first at 99 pounds at the first annual Michael Tarulli Memorial Tournament at Irvington High School.

Barrella, who went 5-0 on the day, leads the Tuskers in both wins (12) and pins (9).

“Dom has been dominant so far,” said Somers coach Ron DiSanto. “He is relentless and always on the attack.  The tougher the opponent, the tougher he wrestles. I had never seen him wrestle before this season, since he goes to North Salem, and came up through the Ridgefield youth wrestling program. However, he was brought to my attention and highly recommended by the Section 1 wrestling commissioner Jamie Block. I knew he would be good but did not expect him to thrive like this so quickly.”

Lupinacci (145), Kim (160) and Gall (220) placed second, while Davidson (170) was third.

“Zach, Peter and Thomas had really good days,” DiSanto said. “They each came out with a loss and takeaways they can learn from. Robert Davidson had a breakthrough performance. It was the best I’ve ever seen him wrestle. He always had good technique but his instincts are clicking this season.”

Somers placed fourth overall out of 10 teams.

“It was a balanced team effort,” DiSanto said. “As a whole, the team is hitting their stride. They are wrestling with something to prove and working hard to make a name for our team this season.”
