Moakley also officiated in the tournament.
``It was really nice,'' Highland coach Mike Young said. ``Whenever we win a tournament we have a tradition at Highland that everyone on the team puts their thumbprint on the trophy. We had all the alumni put their thumbprint on a big poster board (Friday night). It was nice to see some of the old guys.''
What Young's team has managed to accomplish since 1991, its first year at the varsity level, has been impressive.
That first year Highland went 8-11 with just 10th-graders. The following year the Bulldogs improved to 24-18.
Then in 1993 the success of the Highland program catapulted to the top as the Bulldogs went 50-7-1 and won the Golden League title while also finishing seventh in the team scoring at the Southern Section Division IV finals.
In 1994 Highland challenged for a Southern Section title, losing in the semifinals of the dual-meet playoffs to eventual champion John Glenn. The Bulldogs finished the year 36-1 and won also what would be the second of four straight Golden League titles.
John Glenn ended the Bulldogs' season again in 1995, this time in the championship match. Last year, the two teams met again in the title match with John Glenn also winning.
Young feels that this year's team is capable of matching the accomplishments of the school's previous squads.
``This team is as good as a lot of the earlier teams,'' Young said. ``Except we upped the dual meet competition this year. This team could go with any of them.''
Highland has several wrestlers enjoying impressive seasons.
Aldabert broke the school record of 141 career victories a week ago and now has 155 wins through this year.
Stuart Young, the coach's son, is developing into one of the area's most powerful wrestlers. He is 31-4 with 23 pins, including nine first-round pins this weekend.
Highland also appears to be getting stronger as the season progresses. The Bulldogs had several wrestlers get off to a slow start because they were competing on the school's football team, which advanced to the semifinals of the Division II playoffs.
