Arujau ties Nassau consecutive wins record

Syosset's Nick Arujau is wondering what his next

Syosset's Nick Arujau dominated from start to finish in his 16-0 technical fall over Vin Fischetti of Monsignor Farrell in the 125-pound semifinals. His double-bar arms put Fischetti away at the 4:48 mark (he would have had the pin, but the referee whistled the action dead because his move was potentially dangerous).

In advancing to his fourth straight state final, Arujau won his 122 straight match, tying Wantagh's Paul Liguori for the longest winning streak in Nassau history.

He'll look to pass Liguori against Justis Flamio of Mahopac in the final. Last season, Arujau defeated Flamio 6-4 in overtime in the 119-pound state final.
