Varsity Wrestlers are Conference Champs

For the first time since 1999, the Glen Cove High School Big Red Varsity Wrestling team won the Conference 3B Championship. Propelled by wins in four consecutive dual meets over Lawrence, Valley Stream South, Bethpage, and Manhasset, the team earned a first-round bye heading into the Dual Meet Championships, which begin on Friday, January 27 at a site to be determined. The County Qualifying Tournament begins on Saturday, February 4, at a location also yet to be determined. The County Championship will be held at Hofstra University, February 12-13.

The Big Red wrestlers also defended the “Cove Cup” at home earlier this month, fending off challengers Lawrence, Valley Stream Central and Great Neck South. They also hosted the inaugural Charles McCullough Memorial Wrestling Tournament back in December, in which they finished runner-up. Charles was an All-County Football player Nassau County Wrestling Champion for Glen Cove High School in 2002.

Senior Gorov Sodhi is the Captain of the Big Red Wrestling squad; Chris MacDonald is the Head Coach. Congratulations to the team and good luck heading into the championship meets!
