59th Annual Windsor Christmas Tournament
 


The Windsor Wrestling program would like to welcome all athletes, coaches, and fans to the 59th Annual Windsor Christmas Wrestling Tournament, the oldest wrestling tournament in the state. It is with great pleasure that we are able to continue the dream of Jim Howard and bring together some of the best schools and athletes across New York State for an elite competition that prepares all athletes for the top level. The Windsor Tournament is one of the few high quality single entry bracketed tournaments left that set the standard for the New York State Tournament.

Last year it was once again the team from Huntington retaking the crown for the 10th time in tournament history. They did it in fairly dramatic fashion when Ethan Dwyer secured a fall in the 106 final coming from behind in the match and putting his team on top of a tight title race.  They are now tied at the top with Ithaca for most team titles in the 59 year history. This year they will have a tough task again facing a field of 28 teams that welcomes in Oxford and Watkins Glen for the first time.  A two day format with tough matches both days best mimics the NYS Tournament and that is what will separate teams in this year’s tournament.

Back to defend their crowns this season are AJ Burkhart (Waverly), Ethan Dwyer (Huntington), Chris Cirigliano (BGAH), Dylan Wood (Walton), Sonny McPherson (Indian River), and Jack Buell (Sherburne Earlville).  Expect to see multiple State Champions in the 2 day event as we welcome back 2 in Burkhart and John Arceri (Huntington) who will be going for his 3rd Windsor Title this year.  The only question is which up and coming competitors will join them this year in Albany.

 Last year’s tournament hosted FIVE 2015 State Champions and 14 total state place winners.  The Christmas Tournament has long held the tradition of attracting the toughest competition.  Many athletes go on to place and win at the highest levels of the sport thus making the event “The Tournament of Champions”.
