The Horde wrestling team is at the top of the heap as the Section II Finals at the Glens Falls Civic Center approach this weekend.

A number of wins including a 48-0 victory over Springfield, Vt., last week have placed the boys in a good spot. During the Class C 13-team tournament on Saturday, Granville took home a strong fourth-place finish. Junior Nathaniel Palmer went undefeated again for the second weekend in a row to clinch his second Class C title at 138 when he beat Tamarac’s R.J. Rhodes by 4-1 decision, Coach Steve Palmer said.

Along with Palmer, Brad Perry, Dwayne Nadeau and Damian Duffy will join him in the State Qualifier this weekend.

“If we had a few more wins there, we could have held out against Watervliet for third place, but coming back with some pins to go ahead with fourth ,which included beating out Galway who beat us a couple of weeks ago, is a good way to end the season,” Coach Palmer said.

At 285, Dwayne Nadeau added heavily to the team score by pinning Tamarac’s T.J. Levigne in 2 minutes and 11 seconds for third place, while Damian Duffy, at 132, fell to Hoosick Falls’ Colby Davendonis in a 6-3 decision for fourth, Palmer said.

“Brad Perry lost a gut wrenching decision to Garrett Wright, 4-3 in the finals for a second place finish,” his coach said. “The team had a strong showing in the wrestle-back rounds to add to their high place as a group.”

The Horde had three fifth-place finishers and three sixth-place finishers. Dylan Martindale, 106, pinned Joey Armstrong, of Cairo-Durham, in 1 minute and 36 seconds, and Mat Decker won by forfeit over Tom Peabody from Hoosick Falls.

Zach Devino pinned his last opponent, Fort Ann’s Tyler Cardinale in just 43 seconds. Devin Cohan, 99, Ben Fox, 152, and Anthony Arbuckle, 195, were the sixth-place finishers.
