TIOGA'S COLE NAMED ZIFF LAW FIRM REGIONAL BOYS “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”
For the second week in a row, Cole was unbeaten, and helped Tioga to a title — this time the team’s third consecutive New York State Division 2 Duals championship.

Cole won his first three matches by fall, including two in less than a minute, but it was his match in the finals that was the most impressive.

Cole squared off with 2023 state champion Tommy Aiello of John H. Glenn, and pulled out a 10-7 win. He scored a five-point move in the first period, and had Aiello on his back for about 35 seconds until the buzzer sounded. He survived a few seconds on his back in the second period, and sealed the win with a takedown with about 15 seconds remaining in the third period.
