Heine Falls In Suffolk Tournament
Wrestling at 220 pounds, Pierson’s Kevin Heine won his opening match at the Suffolk County Division I Tournament at Walt Whitman High School on Tuesday, pinning Jon Wilson of East Islip in 2 minutes and 32 seconds. Heine, who is undersized and could have wrestled at a lesser weight, went on to lose to John Vigh of Sachem East in the following round. He advanced to “wrestlebacks” to compete for third, fourth and fifth place, but was pinned in his first match by Vin Feola of Walt Whitman at the 3:25 mark, bringing an end to his senior season.
Heine was the lone wrestler from the East Hampton team to advance to the county tournament.
