2021 Holmdel Wrestling

Seven starters, including four District Medalists, two of whom went on to advance to Atlantic City, were lost to graduation. As a result, the Hornets will undergo a bit of a makeover in 2021.

The upper half of the lineup is where the Hornets have the majority of their experience returning, headlined by a trio of returning District Medalists. Matteo Pinnero enters his 4th year in the starting lineup for Holmdel. The D18 runner-up 
has steadily improved each season, and can provide senior leadership in the middle of the lineup.

At 170/182, the Hornets have a solid 1-2 punch in returning Region qualifiers, junior Luke DuPont, and sophomore Thomas Cleary. DuPont is a 3-year starter who has picked up 44 wins in his first two years. He's had some big wins in his career and is working towards a big run in 2021. Clearly also has the ability to put together a big year. Coming off an impressive freshman season in which he won 26 bouts and placed 3rd at Districts, Cleary has put in the work to achieve big things in 2021.

The Hornets will have experience from 195-Hwt, as well. Senior heavyweight Jake Leroux has been in the lineup since his freshman year, and will be looking to have one last big run this season. Fellow senior Hazem Zaky is also a returning starter and gives Holmdel a veteran combo in the 220-Hwt slots. Sophomore John Steele will also looking to build off the experience gained from seeing extended action as a freshman.

Down low, the Hornets have senior Anthony Peloro. Peloro who is coming off a 16-win 2020 season, has been a regular in the lineup since his freshman year. He, along with Zach Rabkin, a 14-match winner in his rookie season last year, provide the Hornets with some experience in the lowerweights for what will be a cast consisting entirely of underclassmen outside of Peloro.
