MAMARONECK, N.Y. Mamaroneck wrestling coach Anthony Vitti made a strategic move and it would result in his team going on a run. Julio Garcias victory in the 152-pound match led to four consecutive victories, leading Mamaroneck to a 51-30 win over visiting Yonkers on Tuesday.
I knew there would be some line-up altering around 152, so we elected to insert Julio Garcia at 152 and got a big win for us, Vitti said.
Ben Miller (160), Dion Duran (170) and Youssif Hemida (182) were each bumped up a weight class by Vitti and the trio responded with pins. The Garcia win and three pins gave Mamaroneck a 21-6 lead.
Following two forfeits at 195 and 220 pounds Mamaronecks Edgar Aguilar finished his match with a pin 57 seconds into the second period.
