Four from area win wrestling State Open titles

Shelton’s Pat Gillen and Sheehan’s Nick Giulietti extended their unbeaten wrestling seasons by claiming State Open championships. New Haven’s Tito Slaughter fell just short of accomplishing those same feats.

In a successful day of action for area athletes Sunday at the New Haven Athletic Center, Amity’s Alex Carpenter and Cheshire’s Kyle Copes also claimed championships, while Hand’s Ed Carroll finished as a runner-up.

A slew of others also advanced to Saturday’s New England championships, also scheduled to be held at the athletic center. The top four in each weight class qualified for that event.

Danbury won its 10th straight Open title, finishing with 98.5 points. South Windsor (84), New Milford (67.5), Hand (64) and Bacon Academy (57) rounded out the top five.

Law’s Jason Richardson (fourth at 119), Derby’s Tyler O’Connor (fourth at 130), Hand’s Brian Onofrio (third at 152) and teammate Joe DeMichele (third at 285) also advanced to the New England championships.
