Of course that means we all have a new non-NJ favorite college team. Do we get free shirts?


Some State Blurbs:

Cole Corrigan: Became the 8th State Champion all-time at TR South, which is 3rd most for a Shore Conference team, behind Jackson Memorial and Long Branch. He is also the 103rd State Champion from the Shore Conference.

Kyle Slendorn: Finished his career with 158 victories, which ties Dan Seidenberg of Raritan for the all-time Shore Conference record.

St John Vianney: Dean Peterson (2nd), Nicholas Caracappa (3rd), and Steven Giannios (4th) had the three highest State finishes in SJV history. It's also the first time the Lancers had multiple State Medal Winners.

Robert Kanniard & Nicko Cofone: Both wrestlers finished the season with 45 wins, which breaks the Shore Conference single season record of 44. Kanniard (2nd at 160) was the Knights' first State Finalist since Drew Doyle in 2007. 

Ocean Township: Jake Benner (2nd) and Alex Poniros (7th) gave the Spartans multiple State Medal Winners for the first time since Zach Hertling and Colton Bigelow in 2012.

Long Branch: Kevin Cerruti (7th) and Peter Wersinger (8th) are the Green Wave's first State Medal Winners since they had four in 2010.

Nick Addison: The junior placed 4th at 170, which matches the highest finish in Rumson history.

Joseph King: After going 0-5 in their previous meetings, King finally bested CBA's Richie Koehler to finish 5th at 120. King is the Cougars' 5th State Placer and first since 2014.

CBA: RIchie Koehler (6th) and Cameron DiGiorgio (8th) continued the Colts' streak of five straight years with a State Medal Winner.

Holmdel: Scott Dupont finished in 6th place at 152, the highest finish in program history for the Hornets.

Brick Memorial: Freshman Vin Santaniello (8th) made it 12 years in a row for the Mustangs with at lease one State Medal Winner.

Freehold Twp: Kyle Hillermeier (8th) recorded his 100th career victory and became the Patriots' first State Medal Winner since 2014.
