Recently, seven Madison wrestlers travelled to Herricks High School on Long Island to participate in a round robin tournament. In 30 matches wrestled, Madison came out on top 24 times. An impressive showing in a tournament full of quality Section VIII and Section XI wrestlers.

On December 29th, Madison is proud to host the 7th Annual Paul Goddard Tournament. This is a round robin format, and 17 Madison wrestlers will be competing, along with 14 other PSAL teams.

The New Year will start off with a bang, as Madison will travel to Monsignor Farrell for the always tough Dave Ironman tournament on January 4th. Konstantin Parfiryev will be looking to repeat as an individual champion, and hoping to join him on the podium this year will be Marc D’Chiutiis, who is closing in on his 20th win this season.
