Three of Stroudsburg High School wrestlers competed in the state tournament.

SHS junior Lenny Pinto became the 2nd state champion in the history of Stroudsburg High School and Monroe County with a pin in the finals.  Pinto was also voted the tournament’s Outstanding Wrestler.  It is a prestigious award that is essentially an MVP.

SHS senior Patrick Noonan defeated a two time state champion to advance to the finals.  Noonan finished in 2nd place with a 1-0 loss in the finals.  Noonan finished his career at Stroudsburg with 131 career wins.

This was the first time in the history of Stroudsburg High School and Monroe County that we have had two state finalists.

SHS junior Josh Jasionowicz finished with two wins in the tournament and was defeated in the blood round, which is one round shy of securing a medal.

SHS finished in 8th place in the PIAA which is a school record.  SHS’s previous highest finish was 17th in 2001.
