Not a strong showing for NH this year with CT, MA, RI, and even ME doing better in 2016. However, we've got some up-and-comers in NH with several freshmen ready to step up and make noise at NEs next year.
Keep up the hard work!
Reyes was certainly worthy of OW consideration at NEs, and those voting should hold onto their ballots until the conclusion of all bouts. 170 was a very tough weight, as was 120 lbs. In Reyes' semi-final he had to go into OT2 for the 5-4 dec, using a backflip to earn his escape. (By the way, wasn't a backflip outlawed a couple years ago? When was that move reinstated as legit?)
I thought DelGallo would defeat McGonagle at 120 lbs. simply because DelGallo has been there before and is very accomplished himself. McGonagle will be fun to watch the next three years.
Another dominant performance came at 195 lbs. from Dylan Barreiro (Pinkerton, NH and D1 Kent State bound). The weight class was not as strong as 120 and 170, but Dylan is a 2-time undefeated NE Champ now, plus being a National Jr. HS Champ last year.
Let's see how all these guys do at Nationals soon. Good luck to all who compete there!
I thought the slam call against Reyes in the semis was pretty dubious.
May have cost him OW. Barreiro was the most dominant of all the champions but 195 was not especially strong which probably hurt his OW chances
Response to Reyes flip, it was not considered a backflip it was considered a somersault. His hands touch the front of the mat before flipping and then his hands touch the mat on the back end of the flip.
You can see the flip here.
