GARDEN CITY — "We expect them to make the nationals, so, it really wasn't a surprise they did as well as they did," said Jamestown Community College coach Kris Schimek about three of his wrestlers who will be advancing to the NJCAA national tournament.

Cameron Page was second at 174 pounds, and Nick Jones (285) and Mike Zito (149) were both third in the NJCAA Region 3 Wrestling Tournament, which was held at Nassau CC on Saturday.

The national tournament will be held in Iowa in two weeks.

Page took second at 174 pounds with a 6-5 win to run his record to 30-7. Jones placed third by winning a 2-1 overtime decision at 285 pounds to increase his record to 19-14. Zito was third when he recorded a technical fall at 149 to bring his record to 19-14.
