La Salle's Pino pushing hard for State Tournament success
February 28, 2020


TROY, NY − The La Salle Institute wrestling room is hard to find, it is pretty small, and boy, is it hot.

Exactly the way Head Coach Zach Taber likes it.

"It's amazing. Our room is a little small, I would like it to have another section mat, but we are right next to the boiler room, we get it up good and hot in here," said Taber. "It doesn't take long to break a sweat. It is exactly what wrestlers need, an environment like this. This is our little space and you can truly feel that when you walk in here."

That tiny little piece of La Salle wrestling has been bouncing with excitement with senior Nick Pino preparing for his debut at the Times Union Center this Friday for the New York State Wrestling Championships. Pino will be the first La Salle wrestler in five years to fight in the New York State Tournament.
