MILLBURN, N.J. - The Madison varsity wrestling team finished in the middle of the pack at Saturday's District 10 Wrestling Tournament at Millburn High School.

More importantly for the Dodgers, they will be well represented at this week's Region 3 Tournament.

Five Madison wrestlers will make the trip to Union High School ready to compete for a spot in the individual state championship meet in Atlantic City.

Donovan Mantone led the charge for the Dodgers, defeating Barringer's Victor Rivera by pin to win the 220-pound title.

Joining Mantone in the regional match will be: Zach Evans - third place in 145-pound group; Dom Luppino - second place in the 170-pound bracket; and Yanni Kostidakas - second place in the 285-pound chart.

The top three wrestlers in each of the 14 weight classes will advance to the NJSIAA Individual State Championship Match at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall from March 7-9.
