  Culley Bellino  


Class D Champion and MOW

submitted by fanofitsince98

You blink and you miss it -- that's how fast the wrestling season can feel sometimes. It feels like just a short time ago I was sitting down writing the first Match of the Week preview for the 2021-22 season, and now I sit here writing the final Match of the Week preview for the 2021-22 season. It's unbelievable! This is the tenth week of matches, and while we've got the postseason individual tournaments staring us straight in the face, we can't get there before finishing up a few more dual meets this week. Last week's headline Section 3 match saw the #1 and #4 teams in Section 3 D-2 square off, as #1 CVA took on #4 Canastota. Canastota, due in part to big wins from Jacob Napoli (285 pounds) and Culley Bellino (132), battled valiantly against the Thunder, and they even led 27-21 with four weights left. CVA, the Section 3 Dual Meet Champions, were just too strong though, and behind a notable win for Cooper Reed (126), clutch performances from Kace Cook (145) and Sixx Cook (152), and a close ending victory for Cole Wheet (160), the Thunder walked away as 42-27 victors.

Also last week, we saw the New York State Dual Meet Tournaments take place (and congratulations again to CVA and Indian River on a solid showing at the tournament), and while that pretty much signals the end of the dual meet season and/or the "regular season," there is still one more exciting dual deserving of a Match of the Week write-up. That dual includes the Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Red Devils and the #2-ranked Camden Blue Devils, and it's set to take place in Camden tonight at 6pm. This dual meet will determine the 2nd place finishers in the 6-team Tri-Valley League, and while both teams would prefer it to be a battle for 1st place, ending their dual meet season on a high note and as high in the league standings as they can should be plenty of motivation. Camden did not wrestle last week, but the week before saw them finish as the Section 3 Division 2 Dual Meet Tournament Runner-Ups, and along with being the #2 ranked Section 3 D-2 team by, they were ranked #23 in New York D-2 by VVS doesn't have the rankings prowess that Camden does, but they did take the team ranked just behind Camden in both Section 3 D-2 and New York D-2, Adirondack, to the limit in a 36-34 loss last week. VVS, who does hold a victory over Section 3 D-1's #3 ranked JD-CBA from early in the season, will be looking to find a way to knock off another impressive opponent to end their season.

What Vernon-Verona-Sherrill is bringing:

The strongest part of VVS's lineup is almost certainly their middleweights, as it features their two wrestlers ranked in the Top 5 of their weight class for Section 3 D-1 ( Those two wrestlers are Hunter Dubois, ranked #4 at 132 pounds, and Charles Foster, ranked #1 at 145. According to cnywrestling, Dubois is 21-4 on the season, while Foster is leading the team in wins at 31-4. Back in 2020, both Dubois and Foster qualified for the Sectional Tournament, and Foster finished 6th in his weight class as an 8th grader. Other 2020 Sectional Qualifiers for VVS included Trey Wickham (currently 9-7 at 126) and Logan Vanderhoof (18-12 at 160). Vanderhoof, who had three losses due to what looks like an injury default from earlier in the season, has to be just outside the Top 5 rankings for his weight class, while Wickham is probably VVS's most reliable lightweight wrestler (although he has not wrestled since mid-December). Going back to the middleweights, one can see that VVS has more depth to offer along with Dubois, Foster, and Vanderhoof, as they also have Kody Foster (20-13) at 138 pounds. Kody, an 8th grader on this young VVS team (just one senior has wrestled for them this season), might be getting stronger as this season goes on, and he joins Keian Collins (5-6 at 138) in adding depth to the Red Devils' middleweights and overall lineup. Along with Collins, VVS has a couple other wrestlers right around the .500 mark, including Seth Roundy (11-12 at 172) up in the heavyweights.

What Camden is bringing:

While it was apparent that Vernon-Verona-Sherrill is coming into Wednesday evening with a solid amount of depth in their middleweights (132 to 160), Camden is no slouch in that area either. The Blue Devils bring #4 Sean Seymore (24-8 at 138) to the mix, as well as Jack Chase (17-13 at 138), James Christmas (14-12 at 152), and Lyle Walker (19-11 at 160). Seymour and Chase have both qualified for Sectionals in the past, and this middleweight group with Christmas and Walker should help Camden counter VVS's middleweight strengths pretty well. Camden is also pretty strong in the lightweights (102 to 126) and heavyweights (172 to 285), and along with Seymore they've got four more ranked wrestlers in the Top 5 of their weight classes. One of those wrestlers is #1-ranked Trey Kimball (20-1 at 126), a 2020 Section 3 Champion and former State Tournament Qualifier, and the other three are #5 Carson Mantelli (17-11 at 102), #4 Kolton Kelley (25-5 at 110), and #3 Joshua Salsman (26-8 at 215). The lightweight trio of Mantelli, Kelley, and Kimball could play a big role against VVS, but so could a heavyweight group that features Salsman, 2020 All-Section 3 wrestler Steven Minor (10-9 at 189) and John Danaher (20-15 at 215, a Top 5 wrestler at times this season). With the solid amount of depth throughout their whole lineup, it's tough to decipher which part of the lineup is Camden's strongest, and it might be more important to note that their depth could help them shift their lineup around at times to create the best matchups for themselves.

Final Thoughts:

It's bittersweet, as usual, to be looking at the final Match of the Week for the season. However, this is a privilege that we were not afforded for the 2020-21 season, so feelings towards the end of this season's dual meets are pretty grateful and upbeat. As for VVS and Camden, this is an exciting Tri-Valley League matchup to end the season. VVS sits at 11-5 and is looking to begin (their win over JD-CBA) and end their season with big dual meet victories, while Camden is 9-4 and looking to show they are more than deserving of their #2 ranking. I think the Red Devils can probably take away more points in the middleweights than the Blue Devils, but Camden's advantages in the lightweights and maybe more so in the heavyweights looks like it could push them ahead in this dual.

[Section III News] xx Syracuse Silver Hawks Rugby
January 27, 2022, 07:25:30 AM by webmstr
The Syracuse Silver Hawks have been around since 2005 and are committed to building a top-notch program. We compete against teams from Buffalo, Rochester, Grand Island, Corning and Albany.  We also try to schedule a scrimmage against a down state team.  Last year, we had three Upstate NY All-Stars.  And, we are sending five kids to France this summer to train in a rugby camp there.  The flyer also mentions our new college scholarship program.

We practice three days a week - usually from 500-630 pm or 530-700 pm.  We are currently zeroing in on practice locations.  It is possible that we will practice at the Carrier Dome from mid-March to mid/late-April.  Then we will hit the fields at O'Connor Park, located at the corner of Velasko Road and Onondaga Boulevard (across from Western Lights Plaza)  This has been our home field for years.

All of our coaches are USA Rugby certified and we teach safe, rugby tackling.  This is a great sport for all wrestling athletes.  Our wrestling connection has been strong over the years.  Notable recent Silverbacks include Tyriq Block from Solvay - a section 3 champion wrestler.

Please spread the word.  Anyone can contact me - and (315) 506-9645 - for more information.
