Two SWR High School varsity wrestling team members were crowned Division II Champions at the 79th annual Dr. L. Robert Fallot Section XI Championships recently held at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood.

Senior John Carl Petretti won the title in the 152 lb. weight class and freshman Connor Pearce took home the title in the 113 lb. weight class. Both wrestlers will now represent the Shoreham-Wading River Central School District and Suffolk County in the state tournament, slated for Feb. 23-24 in Albany.

“We are all proud to witness the strength and determination of these talented athletes and look forward to a successful state competition for them,” said Mark Passamonte, the district’s director of health, physical education, athletics and nurses.

Petretti has a 153-24 career record at Shoreham-Wading River and Pearce has a 47-10 record. Pearce also took the tournament’s award for the most pins in the least amount of time with four pins in 10:23.
