HFHS wrestler Petteys earns 100th career win

Hudson Falls High School junior Chris Petteys reached his 100th win milestone at the Dec. 28 Queensbury Holiday Wrestling Tournament.

Chris began wrestling for the varsity team as an eighth-grader and has competed in the 106-pound weight class and 99-pound weight class.

“Chris is the type of kid you have only once or twice in a coaching career. He’s a hard-worker and leads by example. He’s a leader both in the classroom and on the wrestling mat,” said head coach Michael Prendergast.

Chris also wrestles for club teams, helps coach the district’s youth wrestling program and is a member of the National Honor Society.

“His 100th win was awesome. I’ve been lucky to coach a few kids that have reached that milestone, and to know how hard he worked for that accomplishment, brought a smile to my face.  And he has a lot more to accomplish. He’s a very driven kid and he still has more goals to fulfill,” said Prendergast.
