2020 Season Preview


Head Coach: Danny Franke (9th Season / Record: 119-122)

2019 Overall Record:  20-12  /  Shore Conference:  14-8  /  A-Central:  3-3
Sectionals: CJG2 Quarterfinalists
4th Place District 18
4th Place A-Central
17th Place Shore Conference Tournament


Down Low (106-132): The Hornets have a wealth of experience returning in the lowerweights, and some potential behind them, giving them a pretty solid group. 4-year starter, senior Nick Ammirati, who begins the season with 86 career wins, has finished 6th and 5th in the Region the past two seasons. He is looking to have a huge year down low for Holmdel, while also providing valuable veteran leadership, along with fellow seniors Thomas Ammirati and Branden Ericksen. Thomas, who is also entering his 4th season as a starter, won 17 bouts last year, and was a District Medalist in 2018. Ericksen won 18 matches last season, and along with Ammiratis, gives Holmdel a great senior presence down low. Juniors Anthony Peloro, a 13-match winner, and Brian Frothingham, who went 10-5 last season, also return. A very seasoned and deep group down here for Holmdel.

In The Middle (138-160): A pair of sophomores coming off strong rookie seasons return in the middle in Jaden Gallo and Luke DuPont. Gallo won 28 matches last season, and was a runner-up in District 18, while DuPont reached the 20-win mark. They're joined by returning starters, senior Ian Flanagan, an 18-match winner, and 17-bout winner, junior Matteo Pinnero, to give the Hornets a strong, experienced foursome in the middle.

Up Top (170-Hwt): More experience returning in the uppers as well, led by seniors Mike Pavlinetz and Victor Wladika. Pavlinetz, a 28-match winner, was the D18 Champ and 5th place R5 finisher at 220 last season. He's back at that weight this year and looking for even bigger things after finishing one win shy of a trip to AC. Wladika also tallied 28 victories last year, and placed 3rd in the Districts. They will be joined by fellow seniors Chris Bell and Tom Gao, and junior heavyweight Jake Leroux, giving Holmdel five starters in the five upper weight classes.


In his 9th season, this is head coach Danny Franke's most experienced lineup he has ever had going into a season. It is also the largest freshmen class he has had, giving the Hornets a large group of proven commodities and hungry youth looking to make an immediate impact. This team is going to have some solid depth, giving them the ability to do a lot of maneuvering with the lineup in duals. It's the depth and talent here that should have them right in the thick of things in this year's A-Central race. Outside of dual season, there are five wrestlers in the lineup that have qualified for the Regions in their careers. All, plus a few more, will be looking to get there this season, with several having a good shot at making the trip to AC. This could be a very big year for the Hornets.
