Wentland waits for state chance

Nick Wentland didn’t have to be asked.

Wentland was going to be in Minisink Valley’s wrestling room working out with teammate A.J. Aeberli like he has been all season.

Aeberli is heading to his first state tournament after winning the Section 9 Division I 160-pound title two weeks ago.

Wentland, who placed third in the section, is playing the waiting game. He is the first alternate at 170 pounds.

On Friday morning, Wentland will wait somewhere near the scale at the Times Union Center. If one of the 16 wrestlers in the 170-pound bracket misses weight, Wentland, a senior, will wrestle in his first state championship.

“It (stinks) that I didn’t get the wildcard (four awarded in each weight),” Wentland said. “There’s nothing I can do about it. I can’t dwell on it. I just have to keep my head up. If I get in, I get. If not I get to watch all of my buddies wrestle. It’s still going to be a good time.”

Minisink Valley qualified five wrestlers. Seniors Gerard Daly (120) and Chris Truglio (138), Aeberli and freshman Connor Greiner (106) won section titles. Senior Mike Raccioppi (145) earned a wild card.

Wentland went 37-8 this season and missed out on a wild card by four points.

“He’s a hard-nosed, hard-working kid,” Minisink Valley coach Kevin Gallagher said. “He’s the picture of a teammate. He’s left a legacy for the younger wrestlers on what a teammate should be like and how hard you should work. I’d love for him to get into the tournament.”

If Wentland doesn’t get into the tournament, he will still be involved in state-tournament weekend. He and his Minisink Valley teammates will be acknowledged before the Saturday’s finals as the state’s No. 1-ranked, dual-meet team this season.

Wentland plans on competing at the Senior Nationals in late March in Virginia Beach, Va. He wants to go to college for diesel mechanics at Alfred or Ohio Tech.

“I couldn’t see myself without wrestling,” Wentland said. “It’s a bond with the coaches, my dad, my parents.”

State tournament preview videos: Chris Truglio, Quinn Zsido

Minisink Valley senior 138-pounder Chris Truglio and Cornwall senior 170-pounder Quinn Zsido have a good chance of returning from Albany with a state medal this weekend.

Truglio enters his third state tournament Friday with a 40-0 record.

Zsido is looking to become the first Cornwall wrestler since Paul Paquin to place in the state in back-to-back seasons. Paquin won state titles in 1996 and 1997. Zsido took sixth at 170 last season.

Truglio and Zsido talk about their mindset heading into their final state championship.
