Matt Casullo of Berne-Knox-Westerlo recorded his 100th career win in the 170-pound division of the Shenendehowa Invitational recently. He was also named the tourney’s Most Outstanding Heavyweight.

Also, Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk beat Watervliet, 60-19, on Thursday to clinch the Colonial Council championship with an 8-0 record.
