Albany High junior Shawn Berman wins Section II wrestling championship

Albany High junior Shawn Berman continued his outstanding season Feb. 12 by winning the Section II Division I wrestling championship at 96 pounds.

 

Berman, who set a new school record for victories on his way to the Class A title Feb. 5, swept his four matches in the large-school division at the Section II meet to improve his season record to 41-1 and his career record to 109-19. Berman (pictured at right atop the medal podium Feb. 12 in the Glens Falls Civic Center) advances to the state tournament for the second year in a row. Last year he became the first Albany High wrestler in eight years to make it to states.

 

The state tournament will be held in Albany at the Times Union Center on Feb. 25-26.

 

“Shawn is a very hard-working young man,” coach Nick Lettieri said after Berman won his third consecutive Class A title Feb. 5. “He is extremely coachable and is a well-rounded, good kid – funny, friendly and intelligent.”

 

Berman broke the school record of 103 career wins set by Greg Jones in 1986. Mr. Jones now is principal of New Scotland Elementary School. Berman is 105-19 in his wrestling career. You can read more about him online in a Jan. 30 Times Union article.

 

Berman was one of three Falcons to compete in the Section II tournament Feb. 5. Ta-Kiem Cowan took fourth place at 145 pounds, and DeShon Tucker took sixth place at 189.
