Condon put himself into the right frame of mind as he prepared to battle.

The members of the Shoreham-Wading River High School wrestling team did well to keep that in mind, but it wasn’t easy. It had to be dismaying for them to watch one of their own go down, one by one. It went that way through the first four bouts of Thursday’s Suffolk County League VI card as visiting Westhampton Beach built an early 16-0 lead.
