Voorhees High School’s wrestling team, coming off its emotional victory over Nutley in Friday night’s North 2 Group III final, couldn’t sustain that momentum Sunday morning at Sun National Bank Center in Trenton.
Paramus advanced to the state Group III final against Delsea Sunday morning with a 40-25 semifinal triumph over the Vikings, who finished the season 14-7.
“Paramus is a tough, physical team — very solid, well-balanced, well-coached,” said Voorhees coach Eric Hall. “Our kids wrestled their best and we got beat.”
The Vikings whittled an 18-point deficit down to 30-25 courtesy of a 1-0 decision from 113-pounder Liam Cutri-Frenchl, a fall from 120-pounder Harley Sacks and 126-pounder Kyle DiNapoli’s 12-2 major.
