Chander leads Lawrence wrestlers
(Page 2 of 2)
Donovan Berthoud/Herald
Lawrence's Fred Thomas, a 152-pound senior, placed third in the Sprig Gardner and Ralph Jansson tournaments to open the season.

Three-time county qualifier Akil Mavruk had a late start to the wrestling season after Lawrence’s football team went all the way to a Long Island championship, but he picked up third in the Jansson at 220. “He’s got experience and strength,” DelVecchio said. “If he puts it all together and gets hot, he can go far.”

Senior Mark Rosen, who was second in the qualifier tournament last season, will also contribute at 220. At 285, sophomore Dimitri Samuels is ready to make a splash after finishing third in each of the two tournaments.

Others DelVecchio is counting on include sophomore Jesse Nacht (120), senior James Schneider (126) and sophomore Oscar Puk (138.)

Though seeded fifth out of six teams in Conference 3B, DelVecchio is optimistic the Golden Tornadoes can challenge Bethpage, Garden City and Lynbrook for the top spot. “We can compete with everyone in the conference,” he said. “It always comes down to who’s hot on a particular day.”
