LOCH SHELDRAKE—SUNY Sullivan wrestling coach Anthony Ng has announced that two-time All-American Dylan Palacio of Cornell will be conducting a clinic at the Paul Gerry Fieldhouse on the Loch Sheldrake campus on Saturday, August 19.
The 10 a.m. clinic will be open to all age groups, with the recommendation that participants have at least one year of wrestling experience.
Mr. Palacio is originally from Long Beach, NY, where he won a New York State high school wrestling championship and placed three times in the state tournament. He was also a 2012 winner of the Eastern States Championships, which is contested each January at SUNY Sullivan and is typically one of the most competitive high school tournaments in the country.
While competing at Cornell, Mr. Palacio was a two-time All-Ivy League first team selection, a four time Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association finalist and two-time champion, and a four-time NCAA qualifier. He earned All-America honors by finishing fourth in the nation at 157 pounds as a junior in 2016, posting four straight wins over seeded wrestlers before losing in the consolation finals. As a senior, he finished sixth in the nation at 157 to once again qualify as an All-American.
Mr. Ng is excited about being able to bring a wrestler of this caliber to SUNY Sullivan, describing Mr. Palacio as colorful and animated, as well as successful.
“The points fly when he is out there on the mat,” Mr. Ng said. “I feel he will resonate well with the kids.”
The cost of the clinic is $15 per wrestler with registration in advance and $20 per wrestler at the door.
