December 19, 2014, 4:08am

Annually one of the toughest in-season tournaments in the country, the Beast of the East kicks off for the 22nd time this weekend.  The prevailing headline is Nick Suriano's quest to win his third title and maintain pace to capture four with only one other wrestler in tournament history: Mark Grey (Blair, 2008-2011). Suriano leads #15 Bergen Catholic and the rest of New Jersey in what is the opening weekend for the Garden State.  For #2 Blair Academy (a private school in New Jersey) it is their second weekend of action as they come of...

History has been made, but it was not easy. First, it was David Taylor, now it’s Zahid Valencia. The top-ranked senior of St. John Bosco became the second wrestler in history to win the Walsh Ironman tournament four times since its inception in 1994. His quest for his fourth title began with a pair of falls over Tyler Stepic of St. Edward and Walsh Jesuit’s David Blanchard. He followed up with a major decision over Marmion’s 18th-ranked Nathan Traxler and a 7-3 decision over 3rd-ranked Xavier Montalvo in the semifinals. Last, ...

Ohio State v. Missouri Play by Play Another crazy TOSU dual coming down to criteria!  125-#7 Nathan Tomasello-Ohio State vs. #3 Alan Waters-Missouri 1st Period: Both guys in the middle and we are under way. Waters as expected on a knee, Tomasello pulls him up now Waters has a 2 on 1, Tomasello trying to clear.  Low single from Waters but go behind attempt from Tomasello who ends up on a leg.  Waters runs out of bounds and gets hit for stalling for fleeing the mat. Great single from Tomasello but WHOA, Jonesy Tilt by Waters for th...

2014 Walsh Ironman Preview I get tons of wrestling gear. Tons. So much so, I have to cull my collection from time to time, giving pieces away or throwing them out altogether. But a few years ago, when moving to one state or another (I've lived in six states), I lost my 1994 (the first ever) Ironman T-Shirt and it caused a moment of reflection. A lot of fans may be too new or too young to remember a time when national high school tournaments, particular in-season tournaments with national fields, were non existent.  In 1993 they didn't exis...
