The club took 140 wrestlers to Niagara Falls this past weekend to participate in the Annual Super Six Tournament. Needless to say with those numbers the Club dominated the tournament. They won every division except the Open and Schoolboy Freestyle, which were won by the host Club. The Value of this event is to bring the diverse club together for the event. For all the new members it is the first trip and the first insight to how the club operates.
The coaches saw a lot of good technique from many of the new wrestlers as they are becoming more comfortable with freestyle. Most of the MVWC wrestlers also competed in the Greco portion of the tournament, many for the first time. The club now has a number of new Greco converts.
For the next 2 weeks practices will continue. A possible competition night may be held at Fulton. On April 8, the club will compete at the Holland Patent Qualifier. This event will be followed by the Montreal International, with an overnight stay.

Empire Games Trials Results
The club had its' worst results in the Empire Games trials in the past 15 years. Normally the Central Region (Section 3-4) team is made up of 50-60% Mohawk Valley wrestlers. Those teams have virtually dominated the Games, the past several years by normally winning both High School freestyle and greco, and most recently winning both open divisions. The Club has been very proud of its' members contribution to achieving these results.
This year many members of MVWC decided ,to not attempt to qualify for the Games. Apparently these members felt that a local meaningless folkstyle tournament had more importance than the long established prestigious Empire State Games. A few high school wrestlers, did participate; with a fair number of former and active open members of the Club. Credit is deserved, and given, to those who did participate in both styles at the trials.
Competing at the Games this year are: (* denotes winner)
HIGH SCHOOL FREESTYLE: *George Burkinshaw, *Winky Shepard, Ryan LeBlanc, *Paul LeBlanc, *Kyle LaPan, Tony Pisano, Darrick Smith, *Rob Northup
HIGH SCHOOL GRECO: *Bob Best, Matt Cosgrove, *Jose Cruz, Kieth Lobdel, Tony Pisano, *Jeff Lashomb, Kyle Chase, *Rob Northup, Chad Hayden
OPEN FREESTYLE: Andre Young, Jay Nicholas, Pat Smith, *Andy Boice, *Chris Horning, Chris Cowen
OPEN GRECO: Allan Boice, Marty Barletta, *Andy Boice, Gary Cook, *Chris Horning, Trevor LeBlanc, *Chris Cowen
This year, the Empire Games will be held for the 27th year in Binghamton on July 28-31. This years team will be made up of about 35% Mohawk Valley wrestlers. The group will resume practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning July 13. Hopefully this small, but dedicated group of Club wrestlers will help Section 4 and Shamrock WC, as they carry the burden, for the Central Region honor.
