Going for the Gold 2013

On Sunday, February 3, 2013, the Hasbrouck Heights Recreation Department hosted their 7th Annual Invitational Wrestling Tournament.

Participating were 10 recreation department teams from: Hasbrouck Heights, Lodi, Ridgefield Park, Paramus, Union City, Garfield, Saddle Brook, Wood-Ridge, Hawthorne and Hackensack.

The Tournament was formerly the Andy Feintuch Wrestling Tournament, but the name was transferred to the Andy Feintuch District 5 Championship in 2010. This wrestling event was held at the Hasbrouck Heights High School Gym on February 17, 2013. The event was open to the public.

Winners from the February 17 meet, hosted by Hasbrouck Heights Recreation, will advance to the North Jersey Regional Championships in Hackensack, Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Concessions were staffed by Recreation Wrestling Parents, organized by Coleen Rinke. For more information call Recreation Director Robert Brady at 201-288-4143.

The Twin County Junior Wrestling League was co-founded by Andy Feintuch in 1976-77 with seven teams. Today there are over 55 teams competing in Northern NJ. These are all recreation and town teams and no club teams on the local level. For more information go to:
