On Thursday, December 17th, the MTA Wrestling team began their official season by taking on the reigning champions of YU’s Wittenberg Tournament, the SAR Sting, in their first match. Despite their presumed underdog status, MTA began by having its wrestlers win by pin 4 out of the first 5 matches. The winning streak continued throughout the match, leaving SAR with only 1 pin and 3 major decisions. Special shout outs go to Izzy Frasco (’16), Yosef Kurlantzick (’16), Naftali Horowitz (’16), Yaakov Kurlantzick (’16), Alex Knapp (’17), Ariel Dubizh (’17), Chaim Dov Roffman (’16), Abie Veroba (’19), and Nadav Heller (’19) for their wins. After defeating the reigning champions, the Lions look forward to continue their winning streak this Monday when they will take on the North Shore Stars and Long Island Lutheran in their second and third matches.
