May - SectionOneWrestling.com Superman of the Month
Brian Realbuto, a 7th grader wrestling on the Somers High School varsity wrestling team, recently captured first place at the MAWA Eastern Nationals in Salisbury, Maryland. This impressive showing by Realbuto followed his first place finish at the MAWA East Region Championships Nationals qualifier at Quakertown, PA earlier .
During the 2006-2007 regular season, Brian was the Section 1 runnerup at 96lbs and almost became the first 7th grader to win a Section 1 wrestling title and represent Section 1 at the New York State wrestling championships.
Coming off a big first place finish at the MAWA Nationals and a strong showing at the 2007 sectional champioships, Realbuto will be the favorite to capture a Sectional title at 96lbs for the upcoming 2007-2008 season.
Congratulations to Brian Realbuto - SectionOneWrestling.com Superman of the month for May.
Honorable mention goes to Steve Rodrigues, who placed second and Joe Grippi who placed fourth at the MAWA Nationals.
