Podium hopes: Three Cayuga County wrestlers aim high for state tournament
February 28, 2020


Cayuga County will be well represented when the NYSPHSAA wrestling championships begin at the Times Union Center in Albany on Friday.

Three wrestlers — Auburn’s Keyshin Cooper and Luca Pirozzolo, and Cato-Meridian’s Hunter White — are gunning for state titles. Cooper and Pirozzolo qualified for their respective Division I brackets by winning individual section titles, while White was the runner-up in his sectional bracket in Division II, but was awarded an at-large bid to states.

The three have been drilling together in preparation, and will find out Friday if their work can result in success at the state level.
