Niagara Wheatfield's Mathews brothers shoot for three state bids
February 10, 2022


SANBORN - Rick Sweney loves to find siblings to mold. He loves the competitiveness that brings sibling rivalries.

Sweney has built wrestling programs on siblings over the last five decades and Niagara Wheatfield has seen the rewards. The Falcons have had plenty of brothers battle it out, with the high point being Angelo, Bob and Joey Malvestuto all reaching the 2008 NYSPHSAA tournament.

Niagara Wheatfield has a chance to duplicate the feat 14 years later, with Te'Shaun, Tremell and Trevon Mathews vying for state bids at the Section VI Division I state qualifier on Saturday at Starpoint High School.
