The Long Beach Gladiators is a traveling wrestling club for athletes in grades 1st-12th. Coach Miguel Rodriguez, along with an extensive staff of highly experienced, highly trained coaches, work with the Gladiators "Elite" and the Gladiators "A" Wrestling teams to enhance the quality of wrestling in Nassau County and New York State. This team will be for advanced wrestlers who would like to improve their wrestling skills in Folkstyle.
Congratulations to JACORI TEEMER and ELIJAH RODRIGUEZ for winning New York State Wrestling Championships this past weekend at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY. TEEMER became the first Long Island Wrestler in history to win 5 state titles! He defeated Matt Grippi (a 3X state runner-up) 8-2 to win. He is only the second wrestler ever to win 5 titles in state history. He was voted the Most Outstanding Wrestler of the tournament. RODRIGUEZ won the 220 lb. title and became the first state champ at that weight class since James "Scotty" Graham in 1987. LONG BEACH now has 16 New York State Champions which is the most of any team in Nassau County history. Long Beach finished in 3rd place in the state. Great job! The boys will next compete in the high school national tournament in Virginia Beach, Va the end of March. A BIG thank you to the over 20 Long Beach Alumni who came up to root the team on. See links below to follow results.
