They performed well and had fun.

Riverhead wrestler Mark Matyka 022517

Mark Matyka has a lot to be proud about, but his high school wrestling season ended in tears on mat No. 2 at Times Union Center in Albany Saturday.

Matyka appeared on the path to a Cinderella story. The Riverhead junior was a wild-card entry to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Championships. Then, after losing his first-round Division I match at 99 pounds Friday by a major decision, 12-4, to sixth-seeded Monsignor Farrell sophomore Terry Adams, Matyka battled back in the consolation rounds. Later that day he recorded 6-2 decisions over Malone sophomore Sam Searles and Clarence freshman Aiden Rabideau.

Jason Louser is a humble sort, but the Shoreham-Wading River High School sophomore was something else at the conclusion of the 500-yard freestyle race in the Section XI Championships at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood on Saturday. He was tired. Make that more than tired.

“He was exhausted, but he was relieved,” his coach, Joyce Brown, said. “That’s what I saw on his face, ‘Holy smoke, I’m glad it’s over.’ ” READ

Points were hard to come by in the first half of the Suffolk County Class A quarterfinal between Comsewogue and Shoreham. Neither side led by more than three points in the opening 16 minutes, which ended with Comsewogue holding a 17-16 edge.

Then third-seeded Shoreham won by 20 points.
