Northport High School junior Matthew Marlow won his second Division I New York State championship in a row on Saturday, February 25, further cementing his Northport High School athletic legacy as the first wrestler to accomplish this. Marlow defeated his opponent from Wantagh 5-0 to earn the title.

Earlier in the season, Marlow won several matches before advancing to the 118-pound weight class finals. He also took home the top spot at the Eastern States Classic in January where he did not surrender a single offensive point. Marlow is coached by Head Coach Robert “Thad” Alberti and his father, Assistant Coach Andrew Marlow.

“Matt's performance this weekend was nothing short of spectacular,” said Alberti. “He's a very unique wrestler in his aggressive approach and unwavering commitment to winning. We as a staff are overjoyed that his lifetime commitment is paying off. Matt is a humble athlete and deserves the recognition.”

If all goes well, Marlow will become a three-time All-American wrestler this year. He looks forward to continuing to seek out the top competition in the country to further challenge himself.
