2020 Season Preview


Head Coach: Ken MacIver (4th Season / Career Record: 276-95) 

2019 Overall Record:  15-12  /  Shore Conference:  12-9  /  B-South:  4-3
Sectionals: SJG2 Quarterfinalists
8th Place District 29
Ties 3rd in B-South
36th Place Shore Conference Tournament


Down Low (106-132): Dante Powell is coming off a 21-win season, and could be primed to have a huge year as a senior wrestling out of the 106-spot. Also back down low is senor Mike DiPianta, who racked up 29 wins in 2019. Powell and DiPianta provide strong bookends as several new starters are broken into the lowerweights. Jorge Ramos, Anthony Cogliano, and Alizer Ruiz have experience and will see a lot of mat time, and a promising group of freshmen are in the mix here including Anthony Ryan, Matt Fronzak, and Christian Baccigalupi.

In The Middle (138-160): The Bengals have some good experience returning here with double-digit winners James Circle, Mason Bayer, and TJ Crudup all back in the fold. Kevin Fazio and Jared Schworn got some varsity action last year as freshmen, and newcomer Joe DiFrancesco, a junior, is looking to make an impact in the middle, as well.

Up Top (170-Hwt): Senior Griffin Jackstadt, who has committed to play football at UPenn next year, is the anchor at heavyweight. He was one the Shore's top heavyweights last season, winning 29 bouts, the District 29 Title, and was two wins away from a medal in Atlantic City. He'll be joined in the top of the lineup by fellow seniots Rashidi Alleyne and Matt Giarratano, who give coach MacIver some good veteran leadership up top as a pair of sophomores are broken into the lineup in Luis Salto and Ryan Buckley.

There is a good senior class here, and several more with good varsity experience, that provide a strong nucleus to go with the new starters cracking the lineup. The Bengals have improved their record each year since 2016, and with a nice balance to the lineup, they can look to try and keep that streak going in 2020. Individually, the potential is here for several to make strong post-season runs. Jackstadt will be in the hunt for a spot on the podium in AC this year, and Powell and DiPianta both have the potential to have big runs, as well. And look for that group in the 152-182 range to really push each other in the room as they all look to have big years. If this team stays healthy, they really can put together a pretty solid year.
