Head Coach: Mike Kiley (8th Season / Career: 105-31)
A-South / CJG4 / District 22 / Region 6

Where They Open: 12/14 @ Central Regional
Opening Tournament: 12/16 - Beast of the East

 

 

Harvey Ludington, who has committed to Arizona State, is a 2-time State Finalist, winning a title in 2022. He has amassed a career record of 76-3 through his first two seasons, has won a pair of District and Region Championships, and was a Beast of the East runner-up a year ago. He headlines one of the Shore's top upperweight groups that also features junior Ben Szuba and sophomore Trey Tallmadge.

Szuba was 3rd on the team in wins last season with 25. Szuba won the D23 title at 190, and advanced to Atlantic City after placing 3rd at the Regions. Tallmadge shined in his rookie campaign for Memorial, winning the D23 title at 165, and also making the trip to AC by finishing 4th at the Regions.

Seniors Mason Pirnik and Thomas Prince anchor the middle of the lineup. Pirnik was another of the six Mustangs that competed in AC last year after placing 4th at Regions at 150. Prince was a Region qualifier after finishing 3rd at Districts at 144. Pirnik and Prince provide the veteran presence in the middle as the Stangs break in some new starters. Among the new faces is freshman Jack Marotta, an Intermediate State qualifier in 2023.

There's a strong cast down low, as well, led by yet another returning State qualifier in Michael Napolitano, who punched his ticket to Atlantic City as a freshman after winning the D23 title at 106, and taking 3rd at Regions. Junior Gavin Martin won his 2nd District title last season, and was a win away from making it to States, finishing 5th at Regions.

Also back down low are seniors Ryan Henderson and Jack Torre. Torre was 9-1 in limited action last season, with 7 of those wins coming with bonus. He could be in line for a breakout season in his final year with the Stangs.

Freshman Sonny DiMatteo figures to be the 106-pounder. He has the potential to be one of the top young lowerweights in the Shore, entering the varsity ranks after finishing 2nd at the Intermediate State Tournament in 2023.

Brick Memorial once again figures to be in the hunt for the A-South and CJG4 crowns. They'll get their crack at the 3-time defending A-South champs, Southern, almost right out of the gate as the Stangs head down to Manahawkin on December 20th. The Stangs are also on the road for their rivalry match against Jackson Memorial late in the season on January 31st. They also have a big non-conference date with perennial Group 1 power Paulsboro on January 20th, as part of the Shore Conference Showcase at Southern Regional.
