Get To Know State Wrestling Champion Aaron Wolk ’19

by Mason Greenstein ‘21
Aaron Wolk won the wrestling state championship in the 170 pound weight class. Aaron was the first State championship wrestling winner for Greeley since 1995. I decided to sit down with him and speak to him about his wrestling career.

I know you will be attending D1 Brown University, why did you choose Brown?
They have the open curriculum so it makes it really easy to choose classes. I really like the coach and the team. I visited and talked to the coach multiple times. I’m 40 minutes away from Foxboro and being a Patriots fan, that’s pretty exciting.

What was your high school wrestling record and how many pins did you have?
My record is 157 and 26 and I had 112 pins.

What is your trademark move, what do you do to execute that move, and was that the move you used to pin the guy in the championship match?
My trademark move is the cradle. When I cradle my opponent, I bring his head towards his knee, and lock my hands so that the head and knee stay together. I then pull the guy onto his back. Yes, that was that the move that I used in my championship match.

When did you start to wrestle?
I started in second grade with Coach DeBellis’s youth program.

How did you get into wrestling?
My mom signed me up for Coach DeBellis’s youth program, I kept doing that and the youth tournaments until about 5th grade.

Who do you credit for your success?
Obviously my parents, and my Greeley coaches - Debellis and Tortora. And my club Empire Wrestling Academy in Somers with coaches Degl and Dassan.

What has wrestling taught you?
Time management is a big one. I have a lot of homework both during the season and out of the season too. Perseverance too, especially with injuries. It's hard to come back from an injury but to be the best you have to.

The Greeley Student Boosters thanks Aaron for the interview and we wish him luck at Brown. Congratulations on an amazing Horace Greeley wrestling career!

Greeley Sports Boosters Gifts Support Training Staff, Athlete Health. More Planned with AD Jason Semo

Greeley Sports Boosters has gifted the Horace Greeley Athletic Department with several items used by the training staff to treat athletes from all teams. After the required approval by the Board of Education, the Boosters purchased the first series of items to improve the athletic experience:
  • Portable Training / Taping Table
  • Hydrocollator and Heating Pads
  • Vacuum Splint Set – for stabilizing significant injuries to a leg, arm, wrist or neck
Taping Table Athletic Trainer Rachel Marino taping an ankle on the new table

“The convenience of having the portable table has helped me more effectively treat injured athletes without leaving the sidelines of the basketball game. I’m looking forward to being able to evaluate student athletes on the sidelines on the fields. In the past, the training staff has to address injuries on the ground or on a metal bench. It was not an optimal way to treat our student athletes.”

Hydrocollator
Heating pads in the controlled Hydrocollator heat bath

“We now can treat athletes with heat therapy according to protocol. Before receiving the hydrocollator from the Boosters, we had no effective way of taking care of athletes needing warm therapy.”

Athletic Director Jason Semo added, "The Greeley Sports Boosters organization is a tremendous asset to our athletic department. Aside from financial assistance that supports various projects that enhance the overall pride throughout the district, the Boosters serves a great source of support between department and community through constant conversations and a full collaboration of ideas."
