Anthony Schettino, Technology Teacher at The Green Vale School, competed freestyle in the Veteran's Division of the US Wrestling Nationals held in Las Vegas on April 20-21. After going 3-0 in the 69kg weight class, including a win over Greco Roman National Champion Evgeny Didenko of Russia, he ended up earning All-America Honors and taking home the Bronze Medal.
New to the US Nationals this year was a large team from Russia, to go along with a team from the Ukraine which has competed here before. It added a tremendous international presence to the competition. The New York Athletic Club earned the overall team title with combined point totals in all styles.
