NJSIAA STATE TOURNAMENT
WB3: Vinny Kain (138)

Senior Vinny Kain's season, and Manalapan career, came to an end at Boardwalk Hall on Friday. Kain picked up a pair of wins in the Wrestleback rounds, but ultimately fell a pair of wins short of a spot on the podium.

PQ: Anthony Mucciolo (144)  /  Ardit Gola (165)  /  Donny Tibbet (175)

Vinny Kain became the Braves' first wrestler to reach the Region finals since 2020, clinching a trip to Atlantic City and giving the Braves at least one State qualifier in each of the last eight seasons.

The Braves upped their all-time total to 116 District Champions, which is 11th most in the Shore Conference.

Senior Andrew Mucciolo, a runner-up at 120, recorded his 100th career victory during the tournament, making him the 9th wrestler in program history to reach the century mark.
