State wildcards: Ellefsen, Stramiello, Vespa in

Monroe-Woodbury freshman 106-pounder Marco Vespa, Monroe-Woodbury senior 113-pounder Anthony Stramiello and Goshen junior 220-pounder Ryan Ellefsen received at-large (wild card) berths Wednesday into the state Division I tournament next weekend.

The three wildcard qualifiers is the lowest total for Section 9 since four in 2008.

Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk counties) dominated the wildcard with 27 of 60 wild-card qualifiers.

Vespa went 1-2 at 99 pounds in the state tournament last year. Stramiello is looking for his first state win after qualifying in 2014. Ellefsen is making his first state trip. The three were all runner-ups in the Section 9

Valley Central junior Rob Satriano is the first alternate at 120. Monroe-Woodbury sophomore Dylan Earl is the second alternate at 99.

Section 9 Division II has yet to receive a wild-card entry since the system was implemented in the 2006-07 season.
