JSZ Year in Review: Top Wrestling Matches of 2018
Jersey Sports Zone is about capturing great video highlights. As we get ready to turn the page towards the 2019-20 school year, we take one more look back at the top games captured by our cameras. Our series continues with wrestling. Plain and simple, New Jersey high school wrestling never disappoints. The state produces legit Division I talent year in and year out, and the 2018-2019 season was no different. Our list is a mix of the most viewed dual meets and state championship bouts from the season. #10: St. John Vianney’s Dean Peterson wins the 113-Pound State Championship It was a year to remember for Dean Peterson. The super sophomore rolled through his opponents all season long to a 39-0 record and his first state title. #9: Hunterdon Central’s Brett Ungar win the 106-Pound State Championship Brett Ungar and Tyler Klinksy each hadn’t lost a match all season long, but that would change when Ungar earned a major decision on his way to a state title. #8: Wall’s Rob Kanniard wins the 160-Pound State Championship Rob Kanniard might have had the most dominating season ever in New Jersey high school wrestling. He completed an undefeated 46-0 season, did not allow a single offensive point to be scored on him and won his first state. Kanniard now heads to Rutgers University to wrestle. #7: Howell 30 South Plainfeld 28 Howell and South Plainfield boast two of the most storied public school programs ever in New Jersey. The two powers clashed for bragging rights as the top public team in the Garden State. #6: Bergen Catholic’s Jacob Cardenas wins the 195-Pound State Championship Jacob Cardenas became the seventh wrestler in Bergen Catholic history to win multiple state championships after defeating Paramus’ Kyle Jacob, 6-3, in the state final. #5: Pope John’s JoJo Aragona wins the 138-Pound State Championship JoJo Aragona was ranked as the consensus No. 1 138-pound wrestler all season long and proved it once more by winning his first state championship. #4: Bergen Catholic 48 Delbarton 17 | Non-Public A North Sectional Final Bergen Catholic won 10 bouts and cruised through Delbarton to win its eighth-straight sectional crown. #3: Camden Catholic’s Lucas Revano wins the 145-Pound State Championship Anyone that’s seen Lucas Revano wrestle knows he has a thing for theatrics. Revano won his second consecutive state championship with an overtime pin. #2: St. Joseph (Mont.)’s Sammy Alvarez wins the 126-Pound State Championship It was the most heart-pounding, tense bout of the night in Atlantic City and it did not disappoint. In the first overtime period, Alvarez blocked, shrugged and spun for two against Robert Howard to win his first ever state championship. Alvarez, now committed to Rutgers University, also was named Most Outstanding Wrestler. #1: Blair Academy 45 Bergen Catholic 20 Bergen Catholic’s defeat of Blair Academy in 2018 was one of the most wild wins in all of America. The Bucs, however, used that loss as motivation to get revenge on Bergen Catholic at Lehigh University and secure their spot as the No. 1 high school team in America.

Jersey Sports Zone looks back on the top viewed moments from the 2017-18 wrestling season. From nationally ranked duals to the drama of Atlantic City, here’s our Top 10 list: #10: Point Pleasant Boro 35 Jackson Memorial 16 Point Pleasant Boro honored its 50th season as a wrestling program by bringing back some of the school’s all-time greats and the current Panthers did not disappoint winning nine matches against a Jaguars team that won a sectional title last year.

Watch some great Shore Conference action from the Launch Pad: #6: Long Branch 30 Brick Memorial 29 – Central Jersey Group 4 Finals Daniel Santos-Silva scored a dramatic two-point takedown with 10 seconds to go in the 3rd period of the final match of the night to give Long Branch a thrilling one-point win over the Mustangs.

A pin by the Mustangs Ean Mueller at 170 pounds gave Brick Memorial a nine-point swing and a 29-26 lead.

Watch Basketball Highlights from February 6th
Don Bosco Prep – 61 Bergen Catholic – 59 A buzzer beating three-pointer by Bergen Catholic’s Matt Zona decided the first matchup between these two rivals earlier this season, and the 2nd meeting would go down to the wire once again. This time, Don Bosco Prep was able to avenge that loss and come away with a 61-59 win at home. Ron Harper Jr. battled the flu and scored 14 of his 16 points in a sensational 2nd half performance for the Ironmen. Marcellus Earlington added 15 in the win. Watch Highlights of Bosco – Bergen below! Jersey Sports Zone’s coverage of Bergen Catholic is brought to you by Equinox Fitness Clubs. Equinox is the reason we can bring you great Crusaders highlights and features all year long No. 1 Roselle Catholic 70 No. 11 Linden 55 After an exciting 69-67 game against No. 5 Patrick School, No. 1 ranked Roselle Catholic and LSU commit Naz Reid were back in action Tuesday night to take on No. 11 Linden. The Lions were able to outscore Linden 20-7 in the opening quarter. In the second Roselle Catholic was unstoppable, playing good defense and rocking the rim to take a 42-26 lead at half time. RC would go on to winch match up 70-55 thanks to Khalil Whitney and Colby Rogers who both scored 13 points. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez has the call: Gill St. Bernards 97 Immaculata 62 Needless to say, the Immaculata Spartans were the underdogs in this matchup, seeing as the Gill St. Bernard’s Knight came into tonight 15-3. However, in the first period, the Spartans gave the Knights some trouble thanks to the offensive stylings of senior forward, Stephen Dwyer. In fact, the first quarter the score was only 22-15 Knights. Fortunately for Gill St. Bernard’s Alex Schachne was electric from the three point line contributing 27 points (6 3FGs), and Paul Mulcahy tacked on 22 more for the Knights 97-62 win over the Spartans. Full highlights now available: Bridgewater-Raritan 59 Hillsborough 45 Crosstown rivals, the Hillsborough Raiders and the Bridgewater-Rartian Panthers met tonight for an aggressive game between two long-term rivals. In the first, the Raiders tied the game up thanks to an offensive push by star guard Elissa Nsenkyire, but in the second half Jordyn Hawthorne, and last week’s game ball winner, Teresa Wolak, went off and each score 14 points for the Panthers.
