Amityville Wrestler Off to States
Amityville Memorial High School junior Deonte Wilson will represent the district at the New York State wrestling championships on Feb. 24-25 at the Times Union Center in Albany.

Deonte captured the Section XI championship on Feb. 12 at Suffolk County Community College in the 285-pound weight class. He had a 33-2 record this season, and now has 132 wins in his four years on the Amityville varsity squad.  

“It’s not easy to get to the state championship,” said wrestling head coach Greg McCoy. “Deonte gives us the chance to get our fourth state champion for Amityville, and first since 2002.”

Deonte, a three-sport athlete who also is on the football and track teams, has been training for the upcoming tournament with former state wrestling champion and past Olympic alternate Kyle Seminara, as well as former Amityville head coach Bill Maisel.
