Pound for pound, Syosset’s Vito Arujau proves he’s one of the greats
February 25, 2017


ALBANY — The Vito Arujau era came to an end Saturday night at the Times Union Center. He left us with a lasting memory, his four fingers extended from his right hand to show his four state titles. His shoes left in the middle of the mat signifying the end of his high school career.

Arujau left little doubt as to who was the best wrestler in the 138-pound weight class. The Syosset senior rolled through the bracket with two quick pins and a major decision before punctuating his career with an 8-3 win over Hauppauge’s Jake Silverstein before a crowd of more than 6,000.
