Farrell Wins First CHSAA State Crown Since 1990; 5 Champions Repeat

As I rode upstate to Athol Springs, NY with Monsignor Farrell Assistant Coach, Jason Bross, I was told the story of how the Lions’ coaching staff assembled one day approximately four years ago and looked to the future. With a talented, but still raw group of freshmen staring them in the face, the MF brain trust knew that the day was near that the Staten Island based school would again claim the hardware

msgrfarrelAs I rode upstate to Athol Springs, NY with Monsignor Farrell Assistant Coach, Jason Bross, I was told the story of how the Lions’ coaching staff assembled one day approximately four years ago and looked to the future.  With a talented, but still raw group of freshmen staring them in the face, the MF brain trust knew that the day was near that the Staten Island based school would again claim the hardware that had eluded them for nearly two decades.  A lot of insiders felt that 2008 would be the year that the Lions returned to the top of the hill.  However, having been left without the services of senior leader, Rich Benigno, due to unfortunate circumstances, the Lou DeStefano led Lions had to watch as Chaminade High School claimed their sixth consecutive Catholic State Crown. Since that day, every hour, minute, and second of the past year has been focused on one common goal, to win it all in 2009.  With a core group of four returning champions, and six additional CHSAA State placewinners returning from last year’s runner-up squad, it there was ever a time to believe that the CHSAA State crown was S.I. bounded, it was now….

And today, at a little past 6pm, belief turned itself in reality.  Led by five champions and four runners-up Monsignor Farrell had finally earned the right to call themselves the best Catholic league wrestling team in New York State.   The blood, sweat, tears, etc endured over the last 365 has yielded a gold mine.  And in this gold mine, was a community of parents, coaches, and overall friends of the program that were brought to outbursts of tears as they watched their boys realize their collective dreams.

Massapequa Live Coverage

LHW will provide live coverage of the Massapequa tournament starting at around 12PM. LHW plans to cover the finals with live internet radio, conditions permitting.

LHW provided live web radio coverage of the Massapequa finals. The audio was recorded; however, ustream, the content provider for the streaming radio, seems to have some glitches in their system, and the recording is not available.  I’ve contacted the provider about it, and they said they were experiencing problems with their systems last evening with archiving recordings.   I’ve contacted them about seeing if they could resurrect it.  If they do, I will alert everyone to the archived recording.

Marty agreed to host the radio recording at the last minute when the original cohost was unable to attend the event.  It was fun working with Marty on this broadcast.  His knowledge of the athletes helped the coverage and his love for the sport and the athletes showed through the broadcast.  Thanks Marty for helping me out on this one and for bringing your A game, and hopefully we can continue to work on future broadcasts together.

I’d also like to thank Paul Ligouri for cohosting the coverage after his final’s match.   He also did a terrific job.   I think it’s great having the athletes covering the events, and hopefully we can do more of that in the future.

I’m working on a weekly web TV program. I’m hopeful that we can begin our first program in January. The plan is to have a once weekly TV program every Sunday morning. If any of you have any talents in such a program and would like to contribute, please contact me at webmaster(at)lighthousewrestling(dot)com.
