In the Region 4 Tournament, Philips won his pre-quarter final round Wednesday night against Raja Ahmed from North Plainfield with a technical fall in 2:10 (16-0).  On Friday, he wrestled junior Connor Robinson of North Hunterdon in a quarterfinal match and won it with a decision, 3-0.

That win put Phillips in the semi-final match where he lost to his good friend and training partner CJ Composto from Westfield.  Composto ended up winning his second Region 4 Championship.

After losing to Composto, Phillips dropped down to consolation semi-final match where he still had a chance to place in the top four and qualify for the Atlantic City Championship.  Unfortunately, he lost a heart breaker, 1-0 to Patrick Adams of St. Peter’s Prep.  According to his father, Phillips “…composed himself for the fifth-place match” and again beat Connor Robinson, this time 11-2. 

During the season Phillips was seeded second in District and took second in District 14 losing to Anthony White 5-2 in the finals. White went on to take second in Region 4. Phillips finished in second at Morris Knolls; first place at Whippany Park; and second in the Union County tournament.
