Final Brackets: Division 1 | Division 2

Eagle Academy's Nathanael Rose (Jr.) won the 195-pound Division 2 State Championship on Saturday in Albany. New Utrecht's Saidyokub Kakhramonov (Sr.) was a Division 1 finalist at 132 lbs. Winning his second Division 1 state title was Rich Sisti (Sr.) of Monsignor Farrell at 220 lbs. Rose's teammate Miguel Perez (Jr.) took 5th at 220 lbs. in Division 2.

On the strength of Rose and Perez, Eagle Academy placed 11th as a team in Division 2, the highest-ever placing for a PSAL team in either division, besting Brooklyn International's 12th-place finish in 2012.

The number 1 seed coming into the tournament, Rose rattled off four impressive victories to capture the second-ever PSAL crown, following RKA's Adis Radoncic's title last year. Rose, a junior, has a chance to become the PSAL's first two-time state champion next year. He was one match away from the podium last year.

Following up his 6th-place finish at states last year, Kakhramonov summoned the strength for two last-second victories en route to the finals where he was unable to pull off another herioc ending. He pulled the third-seed into a 5-point lat drop in the final 10 seconds to come from behind and win 10-6 in the quarterfinals and then dropped a granby roll into a reversal off of a restart with :10 on the clock to win 2-1 in the semis.

Sisti is the second-ever NYC wrestler to win two state titles, following Fordham Prep's Andrew Lenzi who was a three-time finalist and won titles as a sophomore in 2008 and as a senior in 2010. Lenzi now competes for the University of Pennsylvania.
