Hills West's Grimaldi Heading To Harvard

Wrestling standout fulfills life-long dream to attend Ivy League school.

Half Hollow Hills West wrestling standout Tyler Grimaldi will take his talents to Harvard next fall.

New York Wrestling News reported that Grimaldi, a top-five wrestler across New York, became the second top Long Island grappler to select a college, following Matt Leshinger of Sayville, who is headed to Columbia.

In making his decision, Grimaldi told New York Wrestling News that he was drawn to Harvard by the coaching staff and the fact that he felt the university was a place where he could succeed in all aspects of life.

“Ever since I was a little kid I promised myself and my parents that I would go to Harvard and that that dream had finally come to fruition,” he said.
