From Dan Butler, Athletic Director:

This past weekend marked the culmination of an outstanding season for the Hauppauge Wrestling Program. On the heels of a dramatic 1 point triumph at the Suffolk County Championships two weeks ago, that saw the Eagles capture the Team Title and place 7 student-athletes on the All-County Wrestling team, Hauppauge sent 3 wrestlers to the New York State Championships in Albany.
After two grueling days of competition, the Eagles placed all three wrestlers on the All-State Team. Junior Mike Tyrrell placed 4th at 182 lbs while Junior Luke Smith took 3rd at 113 lbs, his second consecutive All-State campaign.
Highlighting the Eagles successes of the weekend was Junior Danny Mauriello. Danny captured the State Championship at 152 lbs defeating his opponent in the Ultimate Tie-breaker to take home the title. Entering the Competition as the number 6 seed, Danny took down the numbers 1, 2, and 3 seeds on his way to the top of the podium. Furthermore, each of Danny’s four matches were decided in overtime, the first time this has ever been done at the New York State Championships.
We could not be more proud of the way that these three individuals represented our Athletic Program, School District and Community. A huge congratulations to the whole Hauppauge Wrestling program.
Go Eagles!
