When the numbers finally dwindled to a point where there were two middle schoolers who competed in one event each in the final meet of the 2015-16 season, Edgemont High School did what many other schools had done in the 1990s and early 2000s — it cut out its varsity gymnastics program the fo…
With a growing list of Section 1 winners, All-State wrestlers and New York State champions, the Edgemont wrestling program has a host of Panthers to put up on a pedestal. The latest Panther the coaches can use as a positive example hasn’t achieved any of that. And whether he does or doesn’t …
