Ken West's Argentieri set for states


Tonawanda News — Hineman agreed.

“Since he stepped off the mat at the end of last season, our goal was to get back to sectionals,” Hineman said. “We knew that if we wanted to win it this year, he would probably have to go through Burns again. When we went against Clarence earlier this season, we were able to take a few things from those matches and apply them to sectionals. Once sectionals came around, Anthony knew that he needed to take care of business and he did.

“To defeat a real good wrestler like (Burns) is very impressive and it’s a huge credit to Anthony,” Hines continued.

Being able to win a Section VI championship is a lofty goal that Argentieri feels proud of. But winning a state championship this weekend would be the icing on the cake for him and for the Ken West wrestling program.

“It would mean everything for us and for him,” Hineman said. “Just getting to states is a huge accomplishment, but winning a state championship is the ultimate goal. It’s pretty hard to reach that goal and he knows that it’s going to be tough, but I’m confident that he can pull it off and keep the momentum going for the rest of his high school career.”

“I think it would be huge,” Argentieri added. “Being the first state champion in Kenmore West history would be really big. Winning Section VI was nice, but doing something that’s never been done before is something that is really important to me. I think I’m up for the challenge.”
