Knights Finish in 13th Place

 


 

2022 Crimson Knights Wrestling

Head Coach
Brian Fischer - 14th Season (Career Record: 160-105)

Where They Open
12/18: Robin Leff Tournament at Southern Regional

 

While Wall did lose five solid starters to graduation, they have a nice group returning, are getting back a pair of talented starters from 2020 that did not wrestle last season, and have some promising newcomers joining the fray, as they look for big things in 2022.

The lowerweights are projected to feature a heavy dose of underclassmen, so the Knights will look to 3rd-year starter Nick Vetrano, and senior Tommy Violanzis to provide a little veteran leadership to the young group. Sophomores Colin Roarty, the starter at 106 last season, and Matt Krokosz, got some valuable time in last season, and will be looking to build off that. Keep an eye on freshman Michael DiBiase at 106, who had a solid run in the youth level.

The Knights look to have a good run in the middle, led by sophomore Donovan DiStefano. DiStefano had a standout freshman season, placing 4th in the Region to qualify for the State Tournament. Junior Dominick Interrante has shown some flashes in his first two seasons, and could be a candidate for a breakout year. Fellow juniors Ethan Vigil, Chris Petruzziello, and Will Kinsella will also be looking to step up and contribute in the middle here.

The upperweights get a big lift with the return of a couple familiar faces to the lineup who did not wrestle last season, in senior Lou Pilla, and junior Michael Fumarola. Pilla was an 18-bout winner in 2020, and advanced to the Regions after finishing 2nd at Districts. Fumarola had a solid freshman year in 2020, recording 17 wins. Having that pair back, along with returning starter senior Danny Hyde, is a big boost, as the Knights will be breaking some youngsters into the upperweights.

The Knights have some returners that are capable of having very big individual seasons. They're going to be quite young at some parts of the lineup, so a lot of the team's dual success may rely on how fast the promising group of young guys can develop. There's definitely enough here though that the Knights should contend in B-North, CJG3, and be a Top 10 11 team in the Shore Conference.
