Salute To The Champs: Mount Sinai's Brayden Fahrbach
Mount Sinai junior Brayden Fahrbach wanted to prove himself this winter. Turns out, he couldn’t have left a bigger imprint on the state high school wrestling scene.
Fahrbach earned the No. 1 seed before the state tournament and became a Division II state champion after breezing through the 132-pound division.
“It’s different from any other match,” Fahrbach said after his title win. “Winning a state championship over any other dual meet match, it feels a lot better.”
Fahrbach beat Aidan Gillings from Newfane, 6-4, in the final match. In the rounds leading up to the final, Fahrbach beat his opponents by a combined score of 35-3.
After losing in the state finals his sophomore year at 126 pounds, Fahrbach won the Eastern States tournament at 132 pounds and capped a perfect 34-0 season with a state championship this year.
He has an overall record of 156-15.
