Cheektowaga’s Renaldo Rodriguez-Spencer dominated the 132 pound weight class at the annual Niagara Frontier Wrestling Officials Association and won the Ilio DiPaolo MVP Trophy as a result. Rodriguez-Spencer pinned all five of his opponents including a first period fall over Lew Port’s Ryan Kromer in the first period of his championship finals.
Webster Schroeder of Section Five was the tournament champion with two finalists, followed by Falconer, Lew-Port, Kenmore West, Lancaster, Lockport, Niagara Falls, Iroquois, Eden and Cheektowaga rounded out the top ten.
Thirty-seven teams participated in the two day event held each year at Niagara County Community College and run by the Niagara Frontier Wrestling Officials Association. Proceeds of the event are used to support wrestling in Section Six.
