The NJSIAA district wrestling tournament took place on Saturday, and Verona, which wrestles in District 13, will be sending several grapplers on to the regionals, which start tonight in West Orange.

Verona had an overall 5th place finish in the districts, with first places for Paul Scully, Joe Cordasco and Frankie Greco, a second place for Joe Festa and a third place for Tom Cundari.  Scully scored a 6-2 decision over Mike Dalla Riva of Caldwell, while Cordasco got a 2-1 decision in his match with Jimmy Myers of West Orange. Greco got another pin to his credit, defeating Joe Galioto of Caldwell at the 5:30 mark.

The regionals are a three-day process. Tonight, the second- and third-place finishers from all 32 districts take to the mats at West Orange High School, starting at 6 p.m. Cundari, who is 23-5 on the season, will go up against Chris Fitzgerald of Ridgefield Park, while Festa, who is 28-2, takes on Anthony Martinez of Becton-Wallington.

On Friday, Scully will face Mark Mastropietro of Hasbrouck Heights and Cordasco has a match against James Dugan of Becton-Wallington. Greco, now 30-3, will take on another Becton-Wallington wrestler, Bryan Loughlin.
