Diekel, Aubin win at Eastern States

J ohn Diekel was one of only three local wrestlers to advance into the second round of the Eastern States Classic, held last weekend at Sullivan Community College.

Diekel, who was seeded sixth at 138 pounds, lost his first consolation match of the second day of the tournament, 14-3 to Thomas Dutton of Rocky Point.

On Friday, he pinned his first opponent before losing in the second round. He was able to advance to the second day of the tournament by defeating Dan Jones of Chaminade 6-4. He finished the tournament 2-2.

Al Aubin (120) opened the tournament with a victory before suffering two consecutive losses including a 1-0 defeat Scott Rodriguez of Fox Lane.

Chad Amerio (113) and Brandon Steves (160) were the only other wrestlers from Whitehall to compete in the tournament, which featured more than 100 teams and is considered more difficult than the state tournament. They both went 0-2.

Last Wednesday, the team fell 51-30 to Hadley Luzerne-Lake George. The win was their first this season.

The War Eagles dominated the heavier weight classes, recording pins at 285, 220, 195, and 182 pounds to open that match.

Austin Rich (106), Ryan Love (113), Aubin (132) and Steves (160) all pinned their opponents for Whitehall. Diekel picked up a win via forfeit.

The Railroaders host Adirondack League leading Salem today at 6 p.m. The team will compete in the Lansingburg Duals tomorrow and Saturday.
