Rangers win tourney

James Johnson, Staff Writer

(December 30, 2007) SPENCERPORT Spencerport wrestlers wear an "S" on their gear but the Rangers don't always look super.

Spencerport's Paul Glover, left, defeated LaSalle's Ken Altarac in the final at 215 pounds.

But the bottom line is that often the Rangers find a way to win and may once again be one of New York state's top teams.

Paul Glover, a junior at Spencerport, rallied in the third period to edge La Salle Institute's Ken Altarac 5-4 in the 215-pound final of the Teike-Bernabi Wrestling Tournament on Saturday.

Glover trailed 4-2 with 1:18 remaining in the third period. An escape followed by Glover's single-leg takedown of Altarac at the edge of the circle, just before time expired gave Spencerport fans more to cheer.

"Our style were different so it was kind of a clash," Glover said after he improved his record to 16-0 this season. "I took a deep breath (after the referee awarded the decisive points).

"It was a relief."

Glover, who transferred from Gates Chili two years ago, became a two-time Teike-Bernabi champion.

"We were talking before the tournament about how in the finals this place is just crazy," Glover said after he improved to 16-0 this season. "There are so many people here.

"When I won, I saw and heard them cheering. It's the best feeling I've had in my life so far.''

First-place finishes by Justin Melia at 112, Nick Terenzi at 130, Bryan Bourne at 160 and Glover helped Spencerport again roll to victory. The Rangers scored 222.5 points, 93.5 more than runner-up Johnson City's 129.

"This is the most important time of year for us," Bourne said after he improved to 17-0. "This is when we'll have to start peaking.

"The last two weeks, we've been working really hard. The team has been great in the room. If we can continue that, we can have great success in the near future."

The Rangers can determine where they stand in the state rankings during the Union-Endicott Duals next week.

By then, Shenendehowa senior Hunter Meys (221-10) may own the national record recognized by the Amateur Wrestling News for varsity pins.

"I've been working hard for a long time," Meys said. "Pinning is the way I like to win, so it's very gratifying."

Meys has 188 pins after he defeated Morrisville Eaton's Ethan Childs (14-3) 43 seconds into the 189 final. A three-time top-six finisher at the state tournament, Meys finished 38-0 last season after he pinned all four of his opponents at states.

"This is one award he is excited about," Shenendehowa coach Rob Weeks said. "He's pretty laid-back, unassuming. If you see him, you wouldn't think he's the kid we're talking about. He has curly hair and glasses. He used to be called Harry Potter (by friends)."

Greece Athena senior Alex Marianetti (18-1) heard cheers after the 119 final. Marianetti, who finished fifth at states in '07, became a two-time Teike-Bernabi champion after he handled Shenendehowa's T.J. Popolizio, 9-2. Popolizio (11-1), a 2007 state finalist and Brown University recruit, was undefeated.

So was Shenendehowa junior Luke Popolizio, also a state finalist last year, until he lost 6-4 to Athens' David White.

Lancaster's Mark Lewandowski pinned Spencerport's Paul Morabito in the 135 final. Morabito opened the season with 18 consecutive wins before he faced Lewandowski.

Cheektowaga's Jared Messina and Clay Reeb, plus La Salle Institute's Zach Clemente did keep their unblemished season records intact.

Warsaw's Ian Paddock, a two-time state champ, was in attendance but did not wrestle. Paddock is sidelined for the next week or two with bruised ribs.

"It's nothing that serious," coach Rob Hirsch said.

"He's got to heal and then he'll keep going."
