Kyle Casaletto (H.M. @ 125) put in the extra hours in the gym and wrestling room. The Southern Regional senior did all the sweating. He overcame minor injuries and faced tough wrestler after tough wrestler all season long.
Casaletto got his hand raised in the center of the mat after winning his third District 24 and Region 8 titles. He finished in second at the prestigious Beast of the East tournament and was runner-up in the state tournament for the second straight season.
Casaletto is also The Press Wrestler of the Year.
One thing Casaletto won’t do is take credit for his success.
“I would have never thought as a freshman that I would be a two-time state finalist,” Casaletto said. “My coaches really got me to where I am today. They really did a good job of coaching me and without them, I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish any of my goals. They got me to the level I wanted to be.”
