Bergen Catholic closed-out the 2014-15 wrestling season by becoming just the third team since World War II to crown four individual state champs.  The Crusaders, the #1 team in New Jersey, went a perfect four-for-four in Sunday's championship round.

Junior Nick Suriano led the way by winning his third straight state title.  His victory in the 120-pound final was his 121st straight victory.

BC finished the state tourney with eight total place winners.

The last New Jersey team to crown four state champs was High Point HS in 2011.  In 1949, Newton HS had four individual state champs.
