Wrestling - Boys Varsity
Last year, the Sem wrestling team swept the National Prep Wrestling Championship with a score of 299.5, beating number two Blair by 43 points. This season, the tradition of excellence continues. Read the weight-by-weight recap below from our latest matchups.
106 Will Moss went 3-1, losing on a last second takedown against Malvern. In NJ, Beau Bartlett cruised to a title in his first high school event. Scrappy freshman Max Toman also placed fourth.
113 Jack Davis wrestled well in his debut. He beat a CHSAA State Champ from St Anthony's and went 4-0.
120 Jack Mueller went unscored upon and posted a 4-0 record. In NJ, Freshman PJ Crane reached the finals with a tight, hard fought 5-4 decision before earning a silver.
126 Trent Olson went 3-1, losing a tough bout to St. A's Michigan signee Ben Lamantia. Caruso finalist Peter Robinson fought his way to silver in a loaded bracket as well.
132 Johnny Busiello staked the claim as possibly the most improved Blue Knight, going 4-0.
138 Will Verallis was dominant against some good young athletes. If I had to highlight anyone for technical superiority it would be Will.
145 Danny Boychuck looked awesome moving up four weights. His only loss was to Malvern stud and multiple Prep Matt Lattanze. He has lots of time to get better.
152 Ryan Guers was injured in his first match and couldn't continue. At Caruso, we got strong performances from Jon Carrera who was runner-up and Colin Toggas who placed fourth.
160 Chris Weiler went 4-0 with a solid wire to wire win over one of the best ninth graders in the nation.

182 Christian Dietrich went 4-0 with some hard fought, grind it out wins.
195 Greg Kleinsmith went 4-0 scoring a multitude of nice leg attacks at a big boy weight. In Caruso, we had solid second and third place finishes from Zane Black and Aidan Mathews respectively.
220 Sophomore Cole Nye had a nice debut, going 4-0 and demonstrating some solid leg attacks as well.
285 Giant-slayer Michael Rogers went 4-0 with an early pin of a NY state qualifier and a nice takedown filled victory over a returning PAISWT finalist. We also crowned a champ at Caruso as Super Frosh Dillon Ryan won his first of many high school titles.
