CYAN YELLOW MAGENTA BLACK ning, 4-2. In the first period,

Vanderveer scored two barrel roll takedowns while Adams had an escape. Leading 4-1, Vanderveer got a takedown in the second, then added an escape and a takedown in the third period to eventually win, 9-3.

Comparing his county finals bout and his Region 3 title bout with Adams, Vanderveer said, “He used the same method as he did in the county finals, but I just adjusted better this time. I decided to get more physical with him this time and get more aggressive.”

Top-seeded Mike Mergott at 173 faced defending champion Aaron Morton of Plainfield in the quarterfinals and came up with a 4-3 victory.

“I was a little upset because there was a mix-up in the seeding meeting and I was expecting to wrestle Attonito from Madison. But, I knew that he (Morton) wasn’t working as hard this year as he was last year. I wrestled hard, never stopped and just wore him down to the end.”

Mergott defeated John Dynan of Christian Brothers, 6-2, in the semifinals. In the finals, Mergott was defeated by Barry Stein of Union who had an outstanding tournament.

Highlander Tim Marcantonio, seeded second at 162, won by a 17-1, technical fall over Frank DeMorzio of Hanover Park then breezed past Eran Galipeau of Parsippany Hills, 16-7 to reach the finals. Unfortunately, for Marcantonio, his third attempt at Kevin Kolbeck of Roselle Park fell shy once again, losing 9-8.

Raider Gary Cousar placed fourth in the tournament after losing to Scott Shundler of Delbarton in the third-place wrestle off.

Big Pat Ekstrom of Cranford successfully defended his title at 217,

with a 6-3 decision over Carl Betz of Bayley-Ellard. Ekstrom defeated Mike Harms of Brearley in the quarterfinals in 1:14 and won by a 14-2, majority decision over Chris Cioffi of South Plainfield in the semifinals.

The top-three wrestlers in each weight class advanced to compete in the Super-Region tournament also held in Union on March 10. Survivors will then make the trip to Atlantic City to compete in the state tournament on March 12-13.

tempts at 72. His greatest asset was his team-leading rebounding ability, both offensive and defensive and his ability to blocks shots.

Primarily known for his defensive doggedness, senior Matt Rosen did, however, average 4.2 points per game, hit nine three-pointers and averaged 73 percent from the foul line. Senior Oliver Janney, also dogged on defense, hit 67 percent of his free throws.

Junior Brian Kemps played the first six games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. After Kemps’ injury, junior Jeff Weber increased his playing time and averaged 4.1 points per game. Weber hit 80 percent of his free throws and was second in three-pointers with 11.

“We had two devastating injuries which hurt,” said Everly. “Brian Kemps had a torn ACL/MCL early in the season and Anzelone broke both of his wrists towards the end of the season. With Boatwright out for five games, then Anzelone out for four or five, it made it hard. We needed our three big men (Langton, Anzelone, Boatwright) together to have success.”

Before Anzelone’s injury the Blue Devils got their continuity and became competitive. “From Plainfield on, we were in every single game,” pointed out Everly. “And, we almost

beat Scotch Plains without him.” Everly further commented on the effects of Kemps’ early-season injury, “He was really starting to develop and he had some offensive tools which we needed. He was also a good defender, a good rebounder, a tough kid who did all the dirty work.”

Junior Lawrence Persky averaged 2.6 points per game and hit four from beyond three-point range. Sopho

mores John Semenoro, Doug Minarik and Mark Kolvities had limited playing time and averaged 1.5, 1.4 and 1.3 points per game, respectively. Coach Everly saw some talent in freshman Jim McKeon, 3rd and used him more frequently toward the end of the season. McKeon averaged 2.9 points per game and sank four from beyond three-point range.

“Matt Rosen and Jeff Weber stepped up and did a good job for us after the injuries,” stated Everly. “On the bright side, we had the opportunity to play a lot of our younger kids and that will be a good progression for next year.”

Everly considered his prospects for next year. “It will be such an easier transition for us next year. We will have a young team led by a couple of seniors.”
