Fun Fact
The Hornets have broken the single season record for dual wins for the last three consecutive seasons.

Where They Open
12/15: @ Ewing Tournament

Circle The Date
1/18: vs Middletown South  -  The Hornets have won the last three bouts against the Eagles, two by criteria, and the third by two points.


Tern starters return, and a strong group of newcomers look to make an immediate impact in the lineup, as the Hornets, coming off a 27-win campaign, look to continue their winning ways in 2019.

The lower half of the lineup (106-145) looks to be a big strength. Despite there only being one senior, it is still a very experienced group. Dean Gallo is that lone senior, and is looking for even bigger things in his final year after going 35-5 with a 2nd place finish in the District last season. Also back for Holmdel are Nick and Thomas Ammirati. Nick also recorded 35 wins last season, and was one win away from AC last season. Thomas finished 2018 with 25 wins, and was a 3rd place finisher in the District. Rounding out the returning starters in the lower half are Branden Ericksen, Matteo Pinnero, and Ian Flanagan, all double digit winners as underclassmen last year. As for the newcomers, keep an eye on a couple of freshmen with familiar names looking to make an immediate impact in Jaden Gallo and Luke DuPont.

There is good experience returning in the upper half of the lineup as well. Senior heavyweight Victor Kizenko placed 3rd in the District last season, and could be poised for a big year. The junior trio of Chris Bell, Victor Wladica, and Mike Pavlinetz are returning starters that combined for 54 wins last season. Two more returning starters are at 195-220 in senior Dean Kaplan and Jake Leroux. Junior Tom Gao got valuable mat time in last season and helps provide some depth, while Kai Roden, who saw varsity time in 2017, and Thomas Ilvento, who missed last season due to injury, both return.

The Hornets are coming off a great 2018 with their 27 wins, and the program's first Sectional Final appearance. They have upped the schedule a bit, so matching the 27 wins might be a challenge, but the potential is definitely here to have another very successful with a lot of guys capable of making some big noise
