Wrestler Goes It Alone After College Drops Sport

02/04/2010 -

Peter Morano wrestled for Coach Paul Gallo at New Canaan High School for three years and then enrolled at Wagner College on Staten Island where he made the team as a walk-on in the 174-pound class.

"I went 0-12-didn't win a match in my freshman year," Morano said.

But in the off-season he worked hard and returned to the team as a 6',0" 195 sophomore where he compiled a .500 record. He credited his improvement to "maturing more than anything else," wrestling in the 184-pound weight class in his second year.

With two years remaining his wrestling future looked promising. But just as Morano was hitting his stride, the mat was pulled out from under him.
