Sabato's 3 Stars: Crumpler establish top-tier status with 2nd-place finish
February 28, 2022


Sometimes we forget championships aren't everything. You hear all the time second place doesn't matter. Heaven forbid someone takes third, fourth or fifth. That nonsense won't fly here.

Reaching the finals of the state wrestling tournament is an incredible accomplishment, and Niagara Falls' Jaden Crumpler proved he was a hair away from winning the whole thing in his first trip.

Crumpler was the lone Section VI representative in the Division I final and one of three in either division. That gives him the top star of the week.
