Byron-Bergen junior, Smith, has sights set on Division I wrestling scholarship
January 29, 2023


Malachi Smith has a goal to earn a Division I scholarship to wrestle at a Division I school and, based on his trajectory at Byron-Bergen, you would be foolish to bet against him.

As an eight-grader he took sixth place in Section V B2 division. As a freshman he advanced to third place. One year ago, in his sophomore season, he was second in B2 at 172 lb. and in the Section V Championships before eventually finishing seventh at the New York State Intersectional Championships and State Qualifier.
