ERMA – The Lower Cape May Regional High School wrestling team took full advantage of its first home quad in almost two years Saturday.
The Caper Tigers scored victories in all three matches, getting comfortable decisions over Pinelands (57-21), Timber Creek (60-19) while also edging perennial contender Wall Township (37-25).
Lower Cape May had seven wrestlers pick up three victories on the day, led by senior Nathan Stewart at 150 pounds, who won all three of his matches by fall, highlighted by a 14-second pin against Timber Creek.
Brock Zurawski (165) was also impressive, picking up two wins by pin and a third through the expiration of his opponent’s injury time.
Brayden Castillo (175), Brody Saltzman (190) and Marcus Hebron (215) each won two matches by pin while also picking up a forfeit victory apiece. Jadan Farrow (157) gained two wins by decision and also enjoyed a forfeit victory. And Connor Barikian (113) was a triple winner by fall, through major decision and via forfeit.
Another Tiger wrestler, Corey Achuff (Hwt.), won two of his three matches, picking up both victories by fall.
Lower Cape May is next in action Wednesday at home against Oakcrest.
