NORTHAMPTON WRESTLER JAGGER CONDOMITTI COMMITS TO NEBRASKA
Northampton junior Condomitti makes early commitment to Nebraska
Jagger Condomitti has two years left to get a pair of PIAA Class 3A wrestling titles.
The Northampton junior won’t have to agonize for those two seasons about his future.
Condomitti announced on social media Tuesday that he has committed to the University of Nebraska.
“After many difficult discussions and sleepless nights, I am proud to announce that I have decided to further my academic and athletic career at the University of Nebraska!” he said on Twitter.
Condomitti was a state fourth-place finisher last season at 145 pounds. He also was instrumental in the Konkrete Kids’ run to the District 11 and PIAA 3A team tournament runner-up finishes.
Thanks to a large group of graduates, Condomitti will be among the leaders the next two seasons for Northampton coach Seth Lisa. He also gets to spend his last varsity seasons alongside his brother, Dagen, who is a freshman in 2019-20.
Condomitti, who has an 81-20 record in two seasons for Northampton, will join Bethlehem Catholic graduate Mikey Labriola at Nebraska. The redshirt sophomore was sixth at last season’s NCAA Tournament and fourth at the Big Ten Championships.
Also, Easton grad Bryan Snyder is the Cornhuskers’ associate head coach.
Bringing home the hammers: Stroudsburg senior Patrick Noonan and East Stroudsburg North senior
Avia Bibeau brought home the hammers last weekend at the 2019 Journeymen Fall Classic in Schenectady, New York.
Noonan won four matches by a combined 34-11 score and a pin en route to the 130-pound title. He beat Sunkist Kids Monster Garage’s Tim Levine 12-2 in the final.
Bibeau won the girls’ 134-pound championship with two pins, two technical falls and a decision in the final. Two of her five wins came against 143-pound competitors when tournament officials decided to allow several to drop down a weight class.
One of Bibeau’s victories was against the Canadian national champion.
Other area competitors were: Faith Christian’s Eric Alderfer (3-2 at 113), Pocono Mountain East’s Steve Storm (1-3) and Easton’s Isaiah Reinert (1-3).
Also, DuBois 3A state champion Ed Scott won at 145 pounds. Frazier 2A PIAA champ Thayne Lawrence was second at 160.
