Horde wrestlers show promise at Section II Tournament

A few Golden Horde wrestlers packed a lot of punch in a very long Section II Tournament at Queensbury High School on Feb. 10.

At 160 pounds, Brad Perry went 3-1 to place the highest for Granville, Coach Steve Palmer said. He won by 6-3 decision over Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk’s Luke Misuraca for the bronze medal match.

And in a repeat match-up of the previous week’s final Nathaniel Palmer placed fifth at 138 pounds in a major 9-1 decision over Tamarac’s RJ Rhodes.

At 132, Damian Duffy achieved a sixth-place finish after an 11-10 decision loss to Hoosick Falls’ Bobby Newton, and Dwayne Nadeau went 1-2 at 285 pounds.

“The tournament was one of the more competitive fields in the past years. The matches we lost were very close,” Palmer said, and he feels confident the team’s momentum will keep up.

“The performance by this group of guys will propel them next year,” he said.

The Section II Tournament was supposed to take place as a two-day event at the Glens Falls Civic center but had to be postponed due to the forecasted snowstorm.
