Selina wins national wrestling title!

Congratulations to SEHS senior Selina Moore on winning the 2024 women's 145-pound title during the April 5-7 National High School Coaches Association Championships in Virginia Beach!

A two-time placewinner in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association's Girls Wrestling Invitational, Selina earned a national title and All-America accolades after going 5-0 at NHSCAs.

Selina opened with a 14-8 decision over 2023 New Jersey state champion Olivia Georges in the round of 32 and followed with a pin of Virginia’s Ciyanna Okocha in 1 minute, 29 seconds. A 4-2 quarterfinal decision over 2024 Florida state champion Katherine Stewart set up her 13-4 major decision over 2024 Tennessee state runner-up Sally Johnson.

Buffalo State-bound Selina then beat 2024 North Carolina state champion Faith Bane, 3-1, in the 145-pound national championship match. Selina struck first in the final with a two-point takedown in the first period. Each finalist scored one point on escapes for the final margin. Local fire departments welcomed Selina back to Sherburne with a homecoming parade April 8, shortly after the solar eclipse.

S-E teammate Landon Andrade, who finished fourth at the Division II state championships this year, went 3-2 in the 285-pound weight class for junior boys. Landon trailed Hunter Means, 7-4, in his opener but pinned his West Virginia opponent with 30 seconds left to reach the round of 32. He then dropped a 7-1 decision to Missouri's Rylan Kuhn, who went on to place second overall.

In wrestlebacks, Landon followed a 5-0 decision over fellow New Yorker Kweku Arthur-Mensah with a 5-3 decision against Connor Reynolds of New Jersey. His run ended with a 14-5 major-decision loss to Delaware's Cael Denigris, who ended up fourth overall.
