Blair Wrestlers Compete in the Middlesex Invitational

12/06/2009 -
Blair went down to the Middlesex Invitational today and came back with two medals. Rodney Sharp took first place in the 285lb division, and Mark Cirello took third place in the 149lb division. Rodney began the day by pinning his first opponent, Joe Chiambrone, from Northampton. Then he outlasted Ben Grant of Deleware in triple overtime to make it to the finals. In the finals, Rodney found himself losing by a point in the last period, so he shot a high single and locked up a cradle on his opponent when he got him to the mat. The gutsy move locked up an 8-5 win over Matt Santini of Northampton.

After losing a shoot-out in his first match, Mark Cirello came back to win three straight matches and take third place. Mark fought hard on the day, especially after he went down 7-1 to his first opponent, Steve Armor of West Chester. In that first match, Mark came back only to lose 14-10. In the wrestlebacks, Mark pinned two of his opponents and beat another one 15-2.

Scott Collins also competed, and he pinned his opponent in his only win. Unfortunately, Scott lost two close matches. Finally, Dom Maurillo was winning 7-1 in his first match when he split his eye open and had to leave the tournament to get stitched up.
