2017 Season Preview

Head Coach: Rob Nucci (16th Season / 299-88 at Raritan)

2016 Record: 17-5
#8 in Shore Conference
4th Place District 22
State Sectional Finalists
Shore Conference Tournament Quarterfinalists
A-Central Champions
2nd Place Hawk Classic
3rd Place Neptune Classic


Fair warning, this preview may contain several awful puns in regards to the "Rockets" preparing to "launch", "blast off", "take off", etc. I just can't help myself sometimes. The reality is, however, that with the injection (1) of young talent over the past couple of seasons, Raritan appears to be on the launch pad (2) towards big things in 2017.

Every starter from 106-152 from a year ago is back. Fueled (3) by Region 6 runner-up Russell Benson, the Green Machine should have a punishing stretch in the lineup that includes senior captain Jimmy VanFechtmann, juniors AJ Erven, Christian Sookdeo, Andrew Bohal, sophomore Anthony Aquilano, and senior Vito Aleo, a 23-bout winner last season. The Rockets should be solid at the 1-2 spot of 106/113 with D22 medal winner Charles Barrale, who racked up 24 wins during his frosh year, and Robert Taddeo manning those spots. Don't sleep on Taddeo at 106 who should make a name for himself this season after being behind Barrale on the depth chart at that weight last year. Promising newcomers Mike Lonnay and Carmen Rafalko give head coach Rob Nucci some options down low in the event the team needs to do some lineup juggling.

The bulk of the losses to graduation in 2016 came in the upper half of the lineup. Senior Ryan Dickens and junior Ethan Wolf combined for 35 wins and are the lone returning starters. They're battle-tested and are on the radar (4) to have big seasons. This group also gets a huge boost (rocket boost, I'm counting it, 5) with the arrival of George Burdick who won 25 matches as a 170-frosh at Keansburg last year. The senior duo of Alex Dalmau and Dylan Kansky will inherit the heavyweight slot after backing up Wolf and the graduated Aaron Daniels.

The young guns that have entered the program over the last couple of seasons are now a year older, and looking to blast off (6!) into the Shore Conference's elite. This is a team that always puts the work in during the off-season, and this year was no different. They are capable of putting together a very special year, and they are going for it. The schedule is LOADED. There's the A-Central showdown with St John Vianney, non-divisional matchups with Wall, Long Branch, and Colts Neck, and a non-conference slate that includes Phillipsburg, Camden Catholic, North Hunterdon, and Wayne Valley. Raritan has won the A-Central title in 11 out of the 12 years since the creation of the division. We'll circle the date of 1/18 with their trip to SJV as the main hurdle. Beyond that, the team has its eyes on February success and figures to have to, once again, cross paths with Delaware Valley for a Sectional Title and a potential trip to the Group Championships. If they can stay healthy, the sky is the limit (7!!!) for this team.
