November 2017: Signing Day: Greeley Athletes Commit to D-1 Programs
by Mason Greenstein '21
November 8, 2017 was a special night for Horace Greeley’s left-handed pitcher, Brandon Neeck and wrestler Jacob Ferreira. It was the Letter of Intent signing event. Brandon Neeck signed his letter committing to the University of Virginia. Jacob Ferreira committed to Bucknell University.

Brandon is captain of the Quaker baseball team. Over his Greeley baseball career, Brandon had a lot of impressive statistics. In his junior year, Brandon pitched in 30 games. In those games, he had 50 strikeouts and finished his year with a 1.1 ERA. When asked why he picked UVA, Brandon said, “I wanted the best baseball program I could get, the best coaches I could get, the best education I could get, at the best college I could get and I thought UVA was the best combination of those things”. Brandon will be heading to Charlottesville as a starting pitcher and will proudly wear the Virginia Cavaliers baseball uniform.

Jacob was the first sophomore to become a captain of the wrestling team and he has been captain throughout his years wrestling at Greeley. Heading into the 2017-2018 season, Jacob has a record of 89-34. He also finished 8th in the Eastern States Classic and was a NYS qualifier. Jacob said, “I chose Bucknell because of their academic excellence, the great wrestling program, and its beautiful campus, I like the place.” Jacob will finish out his high school career and then head to Lewisburg, Pennsylvania to start wrestling for the Bison.

Congratulations to both of these impressive athletes and good luck to them in the future.

Greeley Wrestling has strong showing at Eastern States
by Matty Wasserman ‘21
Saturday, January 14- Three Greeley wrestlers, Jacob Ferreira, Aaron Wolk, and Matthew Schreiber competed at the Eastern States Wrestling Classic at Sullivan County Community College.

Schreiber won four matches in the 99 pound weight class, including one pin, and three decisions. Schreiber ultimately fell in the semifinals to the #2 seeded player, and eventual champion.
Aaron Wolk dominated his first two matches with a pin after only 1:13 of play, and a technical fall. However, the #3 seeded wrestler in the wieght class got the best of Wolk in the quarterfinals, on a close 5-3 decision.
Jacob Ferreira crused through his first three matches on a majority decision, pin, and decision, before losing in the finals on a heartbreaking 5-4 decision.

Overall, it was a good day for Greeley wrestling, who finished in a new school-record 7th place out of 160 teams in the tournament.
