Ironman Invitational 2018 – Results

#1 at 106 and #1 in our Fab 50, Terry Adams showed why. Others were less fortunate. The Lions made a weight class move by bumping Frank Gioia dow to 99 lbs. and Frank Kost down to 106 lbs. Both were ranked at their previous weight and both suffered losses today at their new weight. Another Farrell weight changed resulted in Jimmy Ryan moving down to 120 lbs. He was previously ranked #4 at 126 behind a tough group, but today he fell victim to Sal Jones of Luthern in the semi-finals 5-2. He also fell to Evan Matias of Rocky Point 6-1 in the consolation finals. Rocky Point crowned champions over NYC competitors at 152 and 170 lbs.  #3 ranked wrestler at 152 lbs., Anthony Lanza fell in the finals to Corey Connolly of Rocky Point and #7 Jeffrey Geller of MSIT fell to Micky Gold at 170 lbs. NYC transplant and Fargo All-American Terrance Parks now wrestles for St. Benedict’s Prep and he showed why is one of the top wrestlers in the country.

First Reaction

The Dave Ironman Invitational brackets have been released! The tournament is loaded with teams; however, interesting match-ups and weight changes could lead to an interesting day over in Staten Island. Before wrestling gets underway, here are some initial notes:

  • Frank Goioa of Farrell has moved down to 99 lbs. He is currently ranked #7 at 106 lbs. Frank Kost has moved down to 106 lbs. He is currently ranked #4 at 113 lbs. 
  • Jimmy Ryan has descended down to 120 lbs. He was previously ranked #4 at 126 behind Dove Bonjean Alpart, Matthew Mina, and Jayden Cardenas. We will see how the cut affects him today in his home gym as he will have Sal Jones of Luthern on his same side.
  • Middle School stud, Elias Emery is now wrestling at Xavier High School. He is a Harlem Jets product that will be wrestling at 145 lbs.
  • 160 lbs. will be fun. Vin Ndokaj takes to the top seed, but could see a tough Ryan Wannamaker early in the quarters. Waiting on the other side is another NYC product: Fargo All-American Terrence Parks now of St. Benedict’s Prep.
  • Justice Accetta of Monsignor Farrell and #8 Jeffrey Geller could meet early in the second round today.
  • Still no Daniel Adams…..
