A big congratulations goes out to Mikey Evans as he is once again a Section VI champion. He is currently preparing to compete in the New York State Wrestling Championships taking place this weekend in Albany at the Times Union Center. Evans took first place at Lake Shore with three pins to claim the Division 2 title.
He is only the third wrestler in SGI history to qualify for the state tournament and the first to qualify more than once.
Other wrestlers that qualified and competed in the Division II championships at Lake Shore were Shilo Rogers at 106 lbs, Jared Hecht at 120 lbs and Nick Brown at 126 lbs. They all came up short and lost their opening round matches. The tournament was single elimination in the first round.
Good luck Mikey!
