Sullivan West's James DeAveiro was honored as one of the two Bulldog seniors on the ELS team. He recorded his 61st career victory via a win by a fall over Highland's Jake Duncan. DeAveiro is 5-0 this season with zero points against.

Bold holds: ELS defeats Monticello, almost takes down unbeaten Highland

By Richard A. RossLAKE HUNTINGTON -- What a difference a year makes. Last year when Sullivan West, a part of the combined Eldred, Liberty, Sullivan West Division II wrestling team, hosted its one and only wrestling match, none of the Bulldogs got to wrestle as Chester had no opponents in any of their corresponding weight classes. This year however with ELS going head to head with undefeated Highland, there were nearly a full compliment of matches on the docket.
At the outset of the evening Sullivan West Athletic Director Dave Franskevicz honored Sullivan West senior grapplers Nathaniel Edwards and James DeAveiro who then posed for pictures with their parents. This is Edwards' first year on wrestling. He has been on golf for four years. DeAveiro has an impressive wrestling resume that includes being a three-time county all-star, four years on varsity wrestling, 62 career wins, placing second in Section IX as a junior and third in Section IX as a sophomore. He also was a three-time county all-star in football and was chosen to the Section IX all-league team this year. In Baseball DeAveiro is a two-time county All-Star and a three-year varsity starter.
Adding to his resume DeAverio won by a ...read more
