For the fourth time in his career, Edgemont’s Trey Aslanian is a section champ. His win on Sunday was probably one of the closer section finals that he’s been involved in, as he defeated another one of the more decorated wrestlers in the section in Nanuet’s Anthony Calvano with a 3-1 decision in the 120-pound Division 2 final. Usually, Aslanian has made it through the section tournament with relative ease, but he hopes that matches against quality competition such as Calvano will help him end his career on a high note. Aslanian has taken second in the state for two years in a row, so this will be his last shot at capturing that elusive state title.
