RAVENA-COEYMANS-SELKIRK — The RCS wrestling team celebrated its graduating seniors last week on Senior Night.

Five Indians will conclude their high school careers in June.

Each was given a posterboard with their name, the school colors of gold and green, and photos of their matches and accomplishments over the season as a keepsake.

The five senior athletes were honored on Senior Night and joined by their families as the team and community bid them a hearty farewell.

This year’s graduating wrestlers are J.T. Lyle, who competed in the 189-pound weight class; Franky Broadhurst, in the 126-pound division; Jaymie Carkner, in the 285-pound weight class; Antonio Piscitelli, in the 160-pound category; and Jorge Betancourt in the 215-pound weight class.

The day also had a special appearance by wrestler Alivia Ortiz, who performed the national anthem. Ortiz recently competed in the first-ever girls’ state wrestling competition and placed third in the state.

Huge shoutout to Gina Pelletier for providing the photos:
