Livingston High School Wrestling Team Opens Season with Strong Performances

The 2019-20 Lancer wrestling season is under way, and the team began where it left off last year. In the opening dual meet of the season, Livingston topped Morristown, 40-28, before competing at the Hopatcong Tournament and the Patriot Invitational.At the latter, Lancer Max Lee was named “Most Outstanding Wrestler” of the tournament.

Defeats Morristown

The shorthanded Lancers, missing a number of starters due to injury, travelled to Morristown for a Friday night meet. After forfeiting the 220 pound weight class, Lancer heavyweight Azel Bishop energized the Livingston faithful by using a half nelson to score a come-from-behind pin in the third period to get his first varsity win. “That was huge for our team,” said head coach Ernie Cuneo. “We’ve got a kid wrestling in his first match ever and he gets us six. We don’t end up with the W tonight without Azel getting us going.”

His employees and fellow firefighters donated a number of gifts for the drive. “Since opening my company early this year we have found different ways to give back to the communities we serve. We decided that putting a smile on a child’s face, at a time when they need it the most, was one of the things we wanted to close the year out with,” Rivera explains.
