Paris Wins County Wrestling Title

Livingston High School senior wrestler Austin Paris ripped his way through the Essex County Athletic Directors’ Association Wrestling Tournament last weekend. The Lancer 195 pounder pinned each of his opponents and continued to establish himself as a dominant force at his weight in northern New Jersey.

After receiving a bye as a result of his top seed, Paris took on Jamal Joseph from Irvington in the quarterfinals. A scoreless first period was a bit misleading, as Paris relentlessly attacked Joseph’s legs with outside singles and doubles, but the Irvington grappler was able to use the out-ofbounds line and stalemates to his advantage.

In the second period, Paris took control. He chose the defensive position and immediately escaped, scored a take-down and went to work on top. Paris locked up his farside cradle and pinned Joseph in 3:27.

Snowstorm Turns Out to Be ‘No Storm’

Thanks to a lucky spike in temperatures, a snow and ice storm predicted to hit northern New Jersey last weekend had far less impact than originally feared.

Meteorologists had been tracking two weather systems that hit New Jersey onThursday evening and Saturday evening. The first event brought just a dusting, as had been predicted. The second event had potential for up to a foot of snow in some parts of the state Saturday evening, followed by a day of rain on Sunday that could leave up to two inches of ice on roadways and power lines.

Fortunately, temperatures stayed warm enough to keep snow and ice totals down. Livingston was “on the border” of a line between a predicted three to six inches, and six to 12 inches of snow. But the storm dropped just 1½ to two inches of snow before turning to rain on Saturday night.
