Greg Bingham Invitational
SLATE HILL – Oxford sophomore Joe Nelson padded his resume this season with yet another tournament title. A winner at Oxford’s Clyde Cole Tournament and at Walton’s Cuneen-Doane tourney, Nelson captured the Greg Bingham Invitational Sunday evening at Minisink Valley High School.
Nelson defeated well regarded Section IX wrestler Gerard Daly, 9-1, in the 99-pound championship finals. Nelson was subsequently named the tournament’s most outstanding wrestler. “There was a lot of anticipation heading into that match because Joe hasn’t had a lot of tough competition in Section IV this year,” said Oxford volunteer assistant coach, Andy Hadlock of the finals. “This was a good indicator for states.”
Nelson took Daly down and executed his patented bar tilt for back points. He nearly pinned Daly at the end of the second period in a dominant performance.
