Stephen Dutton and Jesse Jantzen are tied for most wins in L.I. history

After pinning Anthony Forca of Smithtown East in 3:00 in the first round and earning a 17-2 technical fall over Nick Castellanos of Connetquot in the quarterfinals, Rocky Point's Stephen Dutton is now tied with Jesse Jantzen, a 2000 Shoreham-Wading River graduate, for the most wins in Long Island history with 221.

Dutton, a three-time defending county champion who is 43-0 on the season, will face Anthony Piscitello of Hauppauge (his former teammate) in this afternoon's 140-pound semifinal.

Jantzen is the only wrestler to ever win six Suffolk titles. He won four state crowns, while Dutton has won one (he placed second as a freshman and third as a sophomore).
