Long Beach wrestles to conference title
(Page 2 of 2)
Donovan Berthoud/Herald
Long Beach's Keith Wildstein edged Kennedy's Hunter Zalud, 8-7, in the closest bout of the Conference 2B match on Jan. 23.

Adams said the come-from-behind 30-28 victory over the host Dalers was one of the highlights of the season so far. “We had to win the last four matches and we did,” noted Adams, who added Jacori and Alan Teemer, Marquet and eighth-grader Elijah Rodriguez (113) came through under pressure. “It was really exciting. We had to remain patient after falling behind. A win like that does a lot for a team’s confidence.”

Adams said he expects Long Beach to vie for the Nassau team dual meet crown along with leading contenders MacArthur, Locust Valley, Massapequa, Plainedge and Wantagh. The team semifinals and finals take place this Saturday at Clarke High School. Next Saturday, Feb. 8, the county will hold qualifier tournaments at six locations to determine participants in the championship meet Feb. 15-16 at Hofstra. “We have potential to send 20 kids to the county tournament,” Adams said.
