The Hampton Bays wrestling team was busy last week: After losing a close match, 42-36, at Port Jefferson on January 23, the Baymen came back to defeat Stony Brook, 61-8, at home on Friday. Then, on Saturday, Hampton Bays took part in the very competitive John Glenn Duals at Elwood/John Glenn High School on Saturday.
The Baymen’s top three wrestlers—junior Cody Nolan and seniors Kevin Giron and Eddie Perez—all had very good weeks. Nolan won three of his matches, two by pin and one by decision. Giron and Perez also won three matches, two by pin.
Shawn Bowen and Ralph Oswald both won two matches throughout the week, and Travis Flynn, John Nolan and Erik Ramirez all picked up victories as well.
Hampton Bays will finish off the League VII dual meet season this upcoming week. After having already faced Smithtown Christian on Wednesday, the Baymen will finish with Bayport/Blue Point at home on Friday at 6 p.m.
The Baymen will then have a full week to prepare for the Suffolk County Division II Championships, which are Saturday, February 9, at Center Moriches High School. Matches are scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m., and there will be a $6 admission to the gym for the day.
