The Sachem East wrestling record book just added a touch of brotherly love.
Sean O'Malley's 10-3 decision over Floyd's R.J. Paquette at 145 pounds on Friday gave him a school-record 122 wins, breaking the mark previously held by his older brother, Danny. The elder O'Malley, a 2009 Suffolk champion, wrestles at the University of Maryland.
O'Malley, ranked among the top 145-pounders on Long Island, debuted on the Flaming Arrows' varsity as a 96-pound eighth-grader.
"He is somebody who came up through our kids program, so we've always expected him to do very well," O'Hara said.
While he has already supplanted his brother on the wins list, Sean O'Malley would like to add another county title to the family trophy case.
"Now he is doing his best wrestling," O'Hara said. "He is looking forward to the challenge of the league and county championships."
