East Meadow's Power wins county title
(Page 2 of 2)

East Meadow's Matt Power, right, defeated Calhoun's Julian Arroyo, 6-0, to win the Nassau 138-pound wrestling title on Feb. 12.

Tropiano finished the season with a record of 27-2. He had strung together more than 20 wins before the loss to Hernandez. “Mike’s season was interrupted several times,” Critchley said. “He had an ankle injury, a patella injury, and bronchitis that forced him to miss the dual meet team playoffs. But he finished strong, winning the qualifier and getting to the county finals. Hernandez is one of the best kids in the entire county. The only way to beat him is to catch him with a big move.”

Smith, who led the Jets on the season with 38 wins, upset No. 1 seed Nick Rondino of Syosset in convincing fashion in the quarterfinals, 8-1. He then knocked off Baldwin’s Sal Trigona, 4-0, in the semis, and led Sewkumar by a point with less than a minute to go. “Adam had a great tournament,” Critchley said. “He lost a heartbreaker that could’ve gone either way. He’ll be back.”
