CRUSADERS WIN SECTIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!

February 11 – Morristown, NJ – The Bergen Catholic Wrestling Team won its 22nd North Sectional Championship in 32 years following its stunning defeat of #1-ranked and defending champion, Delbarton School 24-23.  Of course when #2 beats #1, one would expect a very close match and that’s just what everyone got.  This one was close that because it actually ended in a 23-23 tie.  The match needed to be decided by Criteria “J” Most Near Fall Points by either team.  The Crusaders had 6.  That earned the 24th point for the Crusaders.

Congratulations to Coach Dave Bell and all of his wrestlers on their terrific accomplishment.

BC will go for its 14th State Championship in School History on Sunday at Franklin High School as they take on Christian Brothers Academy of Lincroft on Sunday at Franklin High School.
