Pearl River, Nanuet Wrestling to Battle for Charity

The Pearl River and Nanuet wrestling teams will meet in the first ever Battle for the Belt 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16 at Pearl River High School.

The winning team will hold on to the official Belt for that school year, similar to the traditional Little Brown Jug the schools' football teams compete for each year. 

This year's match is also Pearl River's senior recognition and it will be dedicated to the memory of Thomas Scognamiglio, who was 16 years old when he died from Osteosarcoma in October of 2012. Scognamiglio would have been a senior at Pearl River High School this year. 

Proceeds from this year's Battle for the Belt will go to the Tommy Lollipop Project and the Tommy Scogs Foundation, both of which are dedicated to helping others in Scognamiglio's name. 

Doors will open for the event at 5:30 p.m. with the match at 6 p.m. There will be food, raffles, t-shirts and more. Admission will be $3 for adults and $2 for students in grades seven through 12. Students in grades six and younger get in free.
