Guilderland wrestlers grapple in state tournment at TU Center in Albany

The Enterprise — Michael Koff

Peeking through Josh LoGiudice’s underarm is Plainview freshman Peter Pappas, who upset the second-seeded Guilderland wrestler, 8 to 1, in the first round of the 106-pound weight class at the state competition last Friday. Pappas went on to place second in the tournament, and LoGiudice, a senior, didn’t place, but won two matches in the wrestlebacks.

Guilderland seniors, best friends, and training partners, Josh LoGiudice and Mike Lainhart, wrestled at States for the second consecutive year.
