Greenwich's Whittle Wins Shoreline Wrestling Title

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — Ryan Whittle snapped a tie score in the second period and went on to win the 170-pound title in the 48th annual Ted Murphy Shoreline Wrestling Classic on Saturday at New Rochelle High School.

Whittle, the second seed, beat fourth-seeded Brenden Nunziata of Arlington (N.Y.), 12-8, in a decision. Nick Pennella finished fifth in the 195-pound weight class, pinning Brookfield's Kirk Laurie in 44 seconds.

Whittle, a Greenwich wrestler, and Nunziata were even at 6-6 after the first period. Whittle began the second period in the defensive position and escaped quickly, taking a 7-6 lead. He added a takedown later in the period, extending his lead to 9-6.

The match was halted twice for extended periods of time as the Arlington coaches attended to Nunziata, who was bleeding heavily from his nose.

Whittle advanced to the final with a pin in his quarterfinal match and a 6-2 win over Iona Prep's Brian Anderson, the third seed, in a semifinal.
