here comes the states

W restling

Good news for Golden Horde wrestling fans and senior 285-pounder Eric Hastings. As I noted in my article posted on the website, Hastings has made the state tournament after a controversial loss to Hudson Falls’ Luke Albrecht.

A bit of clarification there.

I had the contact as forearms across the neck that got Hastings docked a point and later both wrestlers warned. Turns out it was head to head contact, head butting, as the reason behind the disputed call. Both wrestlers were coming together pretty hard and it looks like Albrecht moved in as Hastings did and they came together forehead to forehead. The fact remains no warning was given and a point was awarded pretty suddenly.

So Karl Palmer will have a bit of company when he makes another bid for a state wrestling title at 140 pounds. Stay tuned, we’ll have some kind of coverage from the Times Union Center both days between myself and new Whitehall reporter Bill Toscano.
