The north country was well-represented at the 2023 New York State Public High School Athletic Association wrestling tournament at MVP Arena in Albany this past weekend.
Four wrestlers from the area made it to the state semifinals and one, Copenhagen junior Chase Nevills, captured a state Division II championship at 118 pounds on Saturday.
Gouverneur’s Vandavian Way, Carthage’s Ryan Munn and Lowville’s Sean Kelly each advanced to the semifinals. All three fell in the semifinals but Indian River’s Manny Gonzales recovered from a quarterfinal loss to finish in third place. Kelly and Way each placed fourth.
Here’s a look, in pictures, at some of the north country competitors on the mat this past weekend.
