Team of the Week: John Jay wrestling team

The John Jay High School wrestling team is going for a second Section 1 championship after last year taking the Division 2 title.

Bill Swertfager, the head coach, credits his positive-attitude approach to his success.

The coach's son, Mark Swertfager, a 140-pound senior, recently broke the school?s record with 154 wins in his career.

The team will send nine seniors to the section championships this weekend, looking to repeat last year?s success.
