Varsity 845 wrestling all-stars: WOY Damani Burns chooses Cortland

Damani Burns’ favorite moment of his senior wrestling season was his final match.

Burns defeated Shoreham Wading River’s James Szymanski 8-0 to place third in the state last month.

“It just had a lot of emotional value behind it,” said Burns, the Varsity 845 wrestler of year. “It was the last time I was going to put on a Newburgh singlet and the last time I would have these coaches (Chris Leggett and Matt Dunne) in my corner. It really had a lot of meaning to it. I didn’t go in nervous. I went in excited.”

Burns’ wrestling days aren’t over. On Monday night, Burns decided that he will wrestle at Division III Cortland this fall. Burns, who received interest from Division I North Carolina State, was one of Cortland’s top recruit. He visited the school over the weekend.

For more on Burns’ story and his record-breaking season, read the wrestler-of-the-year piece here.

Burns made the Varsity 845 all-star team for the second straight season. Minisink Valley seniors Gerard Daly and Mike Raccioppi were selected for the third time. Here are the top 15 pound-for-pound wrestlers in the area. Link: http://bit.ly/1G2jT0a

Virginia Beach Nationals third-day results: Truglio takes fourth

Minisink Valley senior Chris Truglio’s marvelous run at the Virginia Beach Nationals came to a close with a fourth-place finish at 138 pounds.

Truglio was edged by three-time Maryland state champion Marty Margolis 5-3 in the consolation final.

Truglio picked up his sixth win of the tournament, pinning Jahi Jones of Oxen Hill, Md. in 5:59 in a consolation semifinal.

What a tournament for Truglio. He defeated Anthony Juckes, a five-time New Mexico state champion, and Riley Loveless, a two-time Utah state champion along the way. Truglio was defeated 7-4 in a quarterfinal by Commack’s Mike D’Angelo, a New York state finalist.

Truglio highlighted the tournament, which saw five other area wrestlers earn all-American (top eight) honors.

Delaware Valley (Pa.) freshman 220-pounder John McCarthy finished fourth. Three of McCarthy’s four wins came by pin.

Minisink Valley junior 160-pounder A.J. Aeberli finished sixth with a 5-3 record. Aeberli defeated state champions from North Carolina and Texas this weekend.

Monroe-Woodbury sophomore 170-pounder Kendall Elfstrum beat Hilton’s Mike Spallina 8-3 in overtime to place fifth. Elfstrum was 6-2 this weekend. All six of Elfstrum’s wins were by decision.

Monroe-Woodbury junior 195-pounder Nick McShea, a state finalist last month, beat Ben Stacey of Father Ryan, Tenn. 12-3 to finish seventh. McShea was 5-2 with two pins this weekend.

Minisink Valley 285-pounder Andrew Fenner placed eighth in the freshman division.

Section 9 remembers Dan Barnes

Tony Tocco knew he didn’t have much time to teach Dan Barnes how to be a lacrosse player.

Barnes, who was a first team Varsity845 linebacker at Kingston during his senior year in 2002, decided to pick up lacrosse during his final few months of school. Tocco, coaching Kingston’s varsity team at the time, figured Barnes would make a fine faceoff man. Anything beyond that would be gravy.

But that wasn’t the Dan Barnes way.

“The long and the short of it, he broke every Kingston team record we had in that one year,” said Tocco, who’s now the head coach at Rondout Valley. “Faceoff percentage, ground balls in a game, ground balls in a season. He was just an animal.”

Barnes, after a year-and-a-half battle with melanoma, passed away on Monday at the age of 30.

After graduating from Kingston in 2003, Barnes went to the University at Albany on a football scholarship. As far as Tocco remembers, Barnes wasn’t a can’t-miss prospect on the gridiron. He was the kind of kid that could help a program on the scout team, perhaps someday as a special teams player.

By his junior year, Barnes was starting at linebacker for the Great Danes. In the fall of 2006, his senior year, he was a team captain.
Living in the athlete dorms at UAlbany, Barnes knew some of the lacrosse players. Every once in a while, they’d pick up the sticks and play around.

Albany’s lacrosse players encouraged him to try out for the team and set up a date with head coach Scott Marr.

Barnes first squared off against the team’s No. 2 faceoff man. He won all 10.

Next up, Albany’s top faceoff specialist. Barnes won eight out of 10 and Marr was ready to give him a spot on the team, right then and there.
Barnes, however, wasn’t ready to do anything half-measure. He wanted a guarantee that he wouldn’t be wasting his time by trying to juggle studies in history, political science and Spanish.

This is how Tocco recalls Barnes telling the story.

“He looks at Scott Marr and he says, “Listen. I play varsity football here. Being able to say that I’m on the lacrosse team doesn’t really do anything for me. I’m going to be honest with you, if I’m not going to be a contributor to your program, I don’t need another jacket. If I’m just going to be on the team, I’m going to tell you thanks for the opportunity but I’m going to respectfully decline.”

“I said, “Danny, what happened?”

“(Marr) looked at me like I was insane. “No, you are now our faceoff guy,” Marr said.

Barnes was an American East Conference All-Rookie selection that season.

After college, Barnes went on to earn a master’s degree in international relations at the Complutense University of Madrid. He most recently worked at DARA, an independent humanitarian organization based in Madrid.

Tocco remembers Barnes as “happy, creative and artistic.” Above all, it was his desire to rise to the challenge.

After those early lacrosse practices in the spring of 2003, Barnes would sneak back into Dietz Stadium after dinner. He’d find the facility manager, unlock the locker room and drag a bucket of lacrosse balls onto the field.

He’d take 200 shots left-handed, trying to prove his coach wrong. He could do it. He learned how to do it, even if it meant teaching himself.

“Maybe three games into the season, he demands the ball from Ryan Bolles,” Tocco said. “He moves to the other side, gets and under-and-over call and has to sweep to his left hand. He drives to the cage lefty and just rips top cheddar. He comes jogging off the field and says, “Hey coach, how’s that for a left hand?”

Tocco’s son, Alec, is entering his senior season on the Rondout Valley team. He has been a presence on the sidelines during his father’s practices ever since he was a young child.

So a 6-year-old Alec Tocco was in awe of Barnes during the magical 2003 season in Kingston.

Alec Tocco was already organizing a HEADstrong game for Rondout Valley’s game against Kingston coming up on April 25. HEADstrong is a resource for families affected by a relative with cancer.

There were some ideas as to what to call the game. The Black and Blue Game. A Chunk of The ‘Gunks.

None of those seemed to make sense anymore. There was only one option.

It will now be known as the Danny Barnes Memorial Game.

Scoring trending down in Section 9 baseball

With baseball season around the corner, I decided to pick up a project I had first started working on a few years ago.

When the BBCOR bats were used starting in the 2012 season, it was assumed that scoring would be down in high school baseball. That proved correct.

I went back through the Varsity845 database and found all of the scores from the 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons. With this data, I was able to figure out the average number of runs scored per game.

(I used all of the baseball scores we received, which include out-of-section competition, postseason contests and Delaware Valley (Pa.) games. We don’t always get every Dutchess County game reported, but we still get just about 400 games per year so it’s a pretty big sample size).

In 2011, the last season of baseball prior to BBCOR becoming standard, local teams combined to score an average of 12.5 runs per game. In 2012, there were just 11.6 runs scored per game.

That’s where I left off a few years ago. But run-scoring has continued to decline.

In 2013, local teams combined for an average of 11.0 runs per game. Last season, the figure dropped to 10.3 runs per game.

Here’s a summary:

2011: 401 games; average final score 9.1-3.4; total runs per game 12.5.

2012: 416 games; average final score 8.7-2.9; total runs per game 11.6.

2013: 409 games; average final score 8.1-2.9; total runs per game 11.0.

2014: 404 games; average final score 7.8-2.5; total runs per game 10.3.

If you want to check out the raw data for yourself, it’s posted here.

What does it all mean? Well, it’s hard to tell.

Doing this by average isn’t a perfect method. Those 32-0 games certainly skew the results a little bit doing it that way.

And there are all other sorts of things to keep in mind when trying to find causation for the decline in run scoring. Do umpires have bigger strike zones that are helping pitchers? The incredibly short season, plus wacky weather forcing teams to play four games in four days might explain some of it as well. The OCIAA series scheduling – which isn’t done in every area of the state – could play a role that wouldn’t been seen in other sections.

But it is interesting that scoring in Section 9 is down each year over a period of four seasons.

Are pitchers getting better thanks to individual lessons? Are coaches putting an increased emphasis on defense and is that saving runs? Is it just a cyclical period of stronger pitching and weaker hitting in Section 9. Could a new generation of hitting stars be waiting in the wings?

Or is it simply the BBCOR effect?

It’s an interesting debate. I’ll be keeping track again this season and I’ll keep you updated.
