12/20: Patriots Finish 12th at TCNJ Pride Open

Medal Winners

3rd Place

160: Nino Gagliano





Head Coach:
Mike Gaeta (2nd Season / 12-14)

2014 Final Record: 12-14
7th Place District 21
13th Place Walter Woods Tournament
3rd Place TCNJ Pride Tournament

Lower Half (106-145): The Patriots have a nice group of experience returning in the lower half that will help as they break a few new freshmen into the lineup. Among the returners are junior Mike Plaska, a 20-bout winner as a sophomore, and senior Vinny Fontana, 22 wins in 2014, who should be very tough at 113 this year.

Upper Half (152-Hwt): There is a strong upperclass presence in the upper half of the lineup, led by returning District 21 runner-up Nino Gagliano at 160. Among the other seniors returning are 16-bout winner Jake Elias at 195, and Michael Romano, who returns to the lineup after posting 24 wins as a sophomore in 2013. Senior Romeo Valentin and junior Taylor Larkin will be looking to make strong contributions in 2015 after getting good experience in last year.

Outlook: With so many upperclassmen in the lineup, the sting of losing eight regulars from last year to graduation shouldn't be that bad. There's a couple potential nice 1-2 punches with Fontana and Plaska at 113-120 and Gagliano and Romano at 160-170. Those four should continue to rack up the wins, as well as provide leadership to their respective areas of the lineup.  The top of the A-North division is tough, but with this many upperclassmen in the lineup, you'd expect the Patriots to be thinking about winning now, and setting themselves up for strong postseason runs.  Could be a surprising team here considering the age factor.
