Yianni Diakomihalis took 14 seconds to pin his opponent at 152-pounds and win his 200th consecutive high school wrestling match.
“Yianni already has the New York state record, and it’s something he’s going to build on the rest of the season,” said Hilton head coach Craig Gross. “We all look forward to seeing him extend it.”
