Dan Shafran, a senior at Kennedy High School in the Bellmore-Merrick Central School District, placed fourth at the New York State Wrestling Championships on Feb. 24-25. 

“This was the highest place finish for a JFK wrestler since Nick Laurino in 2006,” said coach Brian DeGaetano.

Shafran finished the season with a 42-5 record, which was a significant improvement from his record last year. 

He started wrestling in his junior year last season and wrestled mostly junior varsity and had a 5-7 record on varsity.
