Stephan Monchery wins prestigious Eastern States Classic
Stephan Monchery became Middletown's first-ever champion at the prestigious Eastern States Classic wrestling tournament, an event that featured wrestlers from Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia and Pennsylvania. It took place at Sullivan County Community College.
Stephan, who wrestles in the 285-pound weight class, went 4-0 on the weekend with three victories coming by pins. His opponent in the finals was the returning New York State 285-pound qualifier and the state's top-ranked wrestler. Look for Stephan to take over that ranking after this performance.
A junior, Stephan has 132 career wins (fourth all-time) and has 89 career pins (2nd all time). It was a great team weekend and we share more details soon.
