Tioga won Division II title at NYS Wrestling Dual Meet Championships

Another month, another state title for Tioga High School.

The Tigers’ wrestlers followed in the footsteps of the football team with a triumphant performance in a state final Saturday night in Syracuse, continuing a dominant season with a 50-7 victory over Canisteo-Greenwood in the Division II championship round at the New York State Wrestling Dual Meet Championships.

Tioga, the state’s top-ranked small school, went 4-0 on the day, taking each meet in decisive fashion at Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena.

“I think we did everything well,” Tioga’s Mason Welch said in an interview with the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. “We executed as a team, we worked together and we supported each other. It was awesome.”

Tioga won the Division II title at the New York State Wrestling Dual Meet Championships on Jan. 29, 2022 at Onondaga Community College's SRC Arena.

During the pool round, Tioga was a 65-9 winner over Port Jervis and a 47-19 winner over Newfane, earning a spot in the semifinals.

Tioga rolled to a 59-12 victory over 2020 Division II state champion Falconer to advance to the final. Section 5 champ Canisteo-Greenwood was a 56-16 victor over Warrensburg-Bolton in the other semifinal.

The Tigers took 11 of the 13 matches against second-ranked Canisteo-Greenwood.
