continued "I only brought my top 10 guys there, so I was treating it like it was an individual tournament," said Schipano. "Our wrestlers went 38-30 over the two days, so I was pleased. We wrestled very competitively. We did not get pinned a lot, which was great."
Kunkle was Ravena's top performer at the Stuart Memorial Duals, as he posted an 8-0 record in the 220-pound division. Parker finished with a 6-2 mark at 170 pounds, and Powell finished 5-3 at 285 pounds.
Following Wednesday's league match against Albany Academy, Ravena will have another chance to test itself in a dual meet tournament when it hosts the Lewis Johnson Memorial Duals Saturday. The six-team field also includes Bethlehemn, Brewster, Onteora, Roy C. Ketcham and Hoosick Falls.
"It's a good mix, and on paper Brewster looks to be the powerhouse," said Schipano. "That will be an interesting match for us."
