HILLSBOROUGH: Wrestler more impressive than reported

To the editor:, I read with interest Justin Feil’s article about the Hillsborough High School wrestling team and the wrestlers who advanced past the district tournament. Congratulations to those wrestlers who qualified for the Regions and State tournament. What I found surprising is the omission of one of the wrestler’s accomplishments from the District tournament that received no mention from the author or the coach who was quoted many times in the article., Hillsborough’s 126 pound wrestler Anthony Donnadio was not only the sole champion from our town but was named the Outstanding Wrestler of the entire tournament as he defeated an opponent who had previously medaled in the State tournament. In order to win the Outstanding Wrestler coaches from all of the towns in the district vote for the best performer., In a time where we reward athletes for just participating in a sport, this omission is strange to say the least. So Anthony Donnadio although the school may not be proud of your accomplishments, those of us in the stands sure were. Congratulations on a great year., Tony Guidice, Hillsborough
