West Orange High School Wrestling Starts Off Strong


WEST ORANGE, NJ - The West Orange High School Wrestling team started off strong with an impressive showing at the Dover Holiday Wrestling Tournament, held Dec. 21-22.


The team placed fourth overall out of a field of 12, with a score of 109.5.


Junior Captain Damian Torres (126lbs), Senior Adonis May (195lbs), and Senior Amadu Kamara (220lbs) placed first in each of their respective weight classes. Freddy Alfaro placed fifth in the 182 lb. class.


Prior to the final rounds, a touching tribute followed by a moment of silence was held in honor for the late Christopher "CJ" Morgan, who won three Dover Holiday Championships titles over his career. CJ's father Chris, brother Colin, and sister Chase were present and brought to the middle of the gym prior to the tribute.


The varsity will head to Middleton, NJ on Dec. 27 for the Walter Woods Wrestling Tournament.
