Section VI Division 2 State Tournament Preview
February 21, 2018


Section VI Division 2 sends fifteen sectional champions as well as an additional fifteen wildcards – the most among all NYS small school sections – to this year’s state tournament. A total of 30 wrestlers in the Division 2 tournament could set the team up to win the area’s first ever intersectional state title in the 60-year history of the NYS tournament. Section III (CNY) small schools have won the last four Division 2 titles in Albany. Only four Section VI place winners return from a year ago in Fredonia’s defending state finalist Hector Colom and the Falconer trio of Dylan Ingrao, Dan Torres, and Corey Keefe. Defending small school tournament champion Central Valley Academy (III) returns three place finishers to Albany, all of whom are seeded first. Falconer returns the fifth most state tournament team points out of all teams and adds Robbie Penhollow as a representative this season. All four Falconer wrestlers are seeded second in their weights, putting the Golden Falcons in prime position to potentially win the tournament team title as well as crown individual champions. Three of the fifteen weight classes feature three Section VI wrestlers.
