James Caldwell High School freshman Dean Caravela surpasses father's record set in 1986, as well as 2004 school record.
Breaking a school record is one way to make your parents proud. But what happens when that record was formerly held by your dad? James Caldwell High School wrestler Dean Caravela achieved 35 wins his freshman year, the most in a single season in the program’s history.

The West Orange Mountaineers rout the Science Park Chargers to advance in the prestigious Greater Newark Tournament. West Orange sets season-high marks.
West Orange has had its shares of ups and downs in the rigorous Super Essex Conference.
