Perry goes to championships

B y Andrew Muse

Brad Perry’s senior wrestling campaign came to an end after a valiant effort at the NYSPHSAA Wrestling Championships at the Times Union Center in Albany this past weekend.

Perry made it to the quarterfinals at 170 pounds and went 2-2 overall at the championship.

“This tournament was definitely the marquee event of the season,” Head Coach Stephen Palmer said. “It was an extremely respectable finish for being in one of the toughest weight classes in the state.”

In his first match he faced Joe Turono of Clarke; it was a close match, 8-6, but Perry’s defense prevailed against the elusive Turono. In his next match Perry faced Ryan Marszal, who matched up against Perry well and took the victory 9-3.

After the loss Perry moved to the consolation bracket where he wrestled Colby Staley of Saranac and pulled out a very close match winning 3-2. Advancing to the next round of the bracket he was pitted against Kyle Ross, who capitalized on a couple of errors by Perry and won 10-2, eliminating Perry from the tournament.

The appearance at the state championships capped a tremendous season of accomplishments for Perry who went 41-5, including 20 wins by pinfall and three tournament championships at various events during the season. Perry racked up 117 wins as a member of Granville’s wrestling team.

“Brad puts things into perspective well; it’s an achievement to even make it to the state tournament,” Palmer said. “There are some great accomplishments that he achieved this year; I’m really happy for him.”
