Odds Are Favorable; JCC’s Skonieczny Looks To Come Home With Title
February 24, 2017


How good was Nate Skonieczny at the NJCAA Region 3/Eastern District 1 wrestling championships two weeks ago?

“One percent shy of perfect,” Jamestown Community College coach Kris Schimek said.

In other words, dominant as usual.

In being named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler at the Liguori Fieldhouse on the campus of Mercyhurst North East, the Jayhawk sophomore posted a pair of early round victories before recording a first-period fall in the title match at 149 pounds to earn a trip to the NJCAA Championships, which begin today at the Mid-American Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
