Seymour finishes fourth

LOCH SHELDRAKE — It was no picnic for the Peru wrestling team at the Annual Eastern States Classic at Sullivan Community College.

There were 116 teams represented and the Indians finished a very respectable 26th with 48 points. Wantagh won the event with 138.5 points.

The tournament featured both Division I and II wrestlers combined and is considered a tougher event than the state meet. There are between 20 and 40 wrestlers in each weight class and teams only send their best wrestlers.

Leading the way for Peru was Troy Seymour, who compiled a 4-2 record at 170 pounds. The two losses were the first two of the year for Seymour.

Seymour ended up taking fourth. He dropped a tough 3-2 decision to Greene’s Christian Dietrich in his third match of the event. Then, after two more wins, Seymour was decisioned, 6-2, by Half Hollows Hills West’s Joe Piccolo.

“Even through fourth place is nothing to sneeze at, Troy didn’t wrestle as well as he thought he could and wasn’t happy about it,” said Peru co-coach Mike Hogan. “He lost two tough matches. But, he has to get back to work and keep preparing for the states.”

Seymour was the only Peru wrestler to place.

Jordan Bushey went 3-2 at 138, Noah Phillips 3-2 at 145, Nick Forget at 126, and Luke McKee 2-2 at 220.

Peru’s Ethan Feazelle (106), Kyler Agoney (113), Tanner Phillips (132) and Caleb Feazelle (152) were eliminated on Friday. Brandon Goddeau (99) went 1-1 on Friday, but missed weight by a pound on Saturday.

“Our wrestlers really did wrestle well,” said Hogan. “These were the best kids they were going up against.

“We had six kids make it to today’s second round and that’s the most we’ve had since we’ve been coming here. It’s a meat grinder of a tournament and it’s a good opportunity for the kids to see where they measure up.

“Troy will learn from it and make the necessary adjustments. All our kids will learn from it and make the adjustments. It was no picnic down here.”

Peru has Champlain Valley Athletic Conference matches scheduled for this week against Beekmantown and then unbeaten Saranac.
