Monday, Jan. 25ESSEX, Vt. -- Mount Greylock wrestler Eli Coniglio picked up his 100th career victory over the weekend at the Mike Baker Classic.
Coniglio placed fifth in the 154-pound weight class, and the Mounties placed seventh overall (out of 10 squads) with 94 total points.
Coniglio reached the century mark in the quarterfinal round.
"He was patiently waiting for it," Greylock coach Ray Miro said of Coniglio's milestone. "His buddy, Sean [Derby-Kilfoyle], got [his 100th] a couple weeks ago, and Eli has been steady since. He ended up fifth [this weekend], but he was in a very tough weight class."
Dylan Hilchey had the highest individual finish for Greylock, placing second at 121 pounds. Derby-Kilfoyle (127 lbs.) finished fourth. Zach Bantle (173) was fifth, and Travis Hilchey (98) placed sixth.
Colin Dezess, Zach Larabee and Dylan Walker were each one victory away from placing.
Massabesic (Maine) claimed the Classic crown with 235 points. Greylock was the only Massachussetts school which attended.
