Patrick Feeley, Johnston, 103 pounds
The freshman proved to be the best 103-pounder in the state. He compiled an impressive 40-1 record and convincingly beat Coventry's Kevin Mao, 9-1, in the state title match. Feeley then went on to capture the New England crown.

Greg Amoroso, East Providence, 140 pounds
The Townies got a big lift this year with Amoroso in the lineup at the 140-pound slot. He notched an 11-6 victory over Warwick's Kyle Woodbine to win the state title.

Matthew Martin, East Providence, 112 pounds
Martin capped his junior year with an exciting 2-1 statechampionship win over Bishop Hendricken's Nathan Myers, the New England champ. Martin, a veteran on the mat, finished the year with 43 wins against just 2 losses.

Alex Rey, Cranston East, 119 pounds
Rey helped lead Cranston East to the state title with a 16-4 semifinal win over Chariho's Jeff Murphy, and a 7-2 triumph in the state championship match over Bishop Hendricken's Mark DeCiccio.

Richard Boudreau, Warwick, 145 pounds
Boudreau led Warwick this season by tallying 46 wins while suffering just 3 losses. He won the state title with an impressive, 8-4, win over Cranston East's Luis Felix.

Dan Fogg, Chariho, 125 pounds
This senior finished the year with a 46-6 record and captured the state crown by edging Exeter/West Greenwich's Josh Clare, 3-2. He is also a member of the 2002 All-Academic Wrestling Team.

Joseph Gravina, Warwick, 189 pounds
Gravina makes the All-State team for the second consecutive season. One of the Hurricanes' top wrestlers, Gravina cruised through the state tournament with a 19-6 win in the semifinals over Ponaganset's Eric Martell, and pinned Mount Pleasant's Tyrone Tilson in the state finals to bring the 189-pound crown to Warwick.

Joey Bellini, Burrillville, 152 pounds
To say that Bellini was a valuable asset for Burrillville would be an understatement. The sophomore had a strong season and highlighted the year by pinning La Salle's Zaid Muhammad in the state championship match.

Marquis Brewster, Cranston East, 130 pounds
Brewster racked up more than 40 wins en route to bringing home another state title for his championship Thunderbolt squad. This gritty grappler went 43-3 and placed fourth at the New England Championships.

Matthew Cuccio, Cranston East, 215 pounds
Cuccio was one of state champion Cranston East's best wrestlers. His record, 40-1, speaks for itself. His state championship, 7-5, win over West Warwick's Casey Factor was the highlight of his junior year.

Evan Gauvin, North Providence, 160 pounds
Gauvin's name was on the tip of everyone's tongue in North Providence this year. He was the Cougars' top wrestler and proved it when he pinned Pilgrim's Scott Blanchard for the 160-pound state title.

Jason Miele, La Salle, 135 pounds
Miele was a key cog in La Salle's fine-tuned wrestling machine. He was 47-3 on the mat and won the state title by pinning Bishop Hendricken's Chris Valliere.

Chris Hannon, North Kingstown, 275 pounds
Perhaps the most dominant wrestler in the state, Hannon finished the season undefeated, going 32-0 in dual-meet action by rarely being put on his back. He captured the state championship by pinning Warwick's Eric Gendron, and went on to place fifth at the New England Championships.

Matthew Robinson, East Providence, 171 pounds
Robinson was a workhorse both on the wrestling mat and in the classroom. The senior won the state crown with a 13-10 decision over La Salle's Matt Richards. He is also a member of the 2002 All-Academic Wrestling Team.
