2017 Season Preview


Head Coach: Scott Pressman (10th Season / 211-118)

2016 Record: 18-9
4th Place District 21
State Sectional Qualifiers
Shore Conference Tournament Pre-Quarters
4th Place A-North
6th Place Walter Woods Tournament
8th Place Nottingham Invitational

With eleven starters back from last year's 18-win team, and some strong depth, the Braves are looking towards big things in 2017.

The big name back for Manalapan is senior 152-pounder, Ronny Ghaida. Ghaida, who led the team in wins in 2016, is a returning District champion and was an overtime loss away from reaching the Region finals a year ago. He anchors what should be a very strong stretch run from 126-152 that also includes returning starters Michael Goebel, Alex Baran, Matt Mustillo, and Anthony Coposky. Keep an eye on Baran this season as he is coming off a strong freshman year that saw him record 18 wins.

Up top, Manalapan has returning vets Justin Obermeyer (3rd D21), and Jake Staklinski (24 wins in 2016), both seniors, and junior Peter Benedetti, who is coming off a nice 16-win sophomore campaign where he split time at 220/Hwt. He's another that could be in line for a breakthrough year. Junior Trevor Radosevich got extensive experience in 2016, which should pay dividends as he mans the heavyweight slot.

Sophomore Paul Santomarco and Junior AJ Sortino combined for 37 wins last season. They're both back at the 106/113 positions which will give the Braves one of the better 1-2 combos at those weights in the Shore.

There's a lot to like in this lineup. It's experienced, it's balanced, and it has depth, which gives head coach Scott Pressman a lot of lineup options. This team is going to rack up wins, is a Top 10 contender in the Shore, and will be a tough out for anyone. The A-North division is tough, and the Braves will find out where they stand in it within the span of two days as they take on Colts Neck on 1/7 and Howell on 1/9. With Howell moving out of the CJG5 Section it opens the door for a new champ. The field, which includes Monroe, Hunterdon Central, and Old Bridge, among others, will all be in the hunt along with the Braves.
