Lyndonville High senior Tony Recco went 1-2 today to place sixth in the Division 2 (small schools) state wrestling champions at Albany.

Recco, who rebounded from an opening round loss to score a pair of consolation round victories on Friday, kept the momentum to begin today’s competition.

Recco opened the day by pinning Roland Lapoint of Northern Adirondack (Section 7) in 4:49 but then dropped a 5-0 decision to Matteo DeVincenzo of Port Jefferson (Section 1). Finally, he dropped a narrow 3-2 decision to Hunter Dusold of Locust Valley (Section 8) in the match for fifth place.

Recco, who won the states his freshman year and placed third a year ago, finishes the tournament at 3-3.
