Dellavecchia, a 2015 graduate of East Islip High School became the first Long Islander to reach the NCAA Division I wrestling finals since Shoreham-Wading River’s Jesse Jantzen won the 2004 title at 149 pounds.
Dellavecchia is 11-0 on the season. He won four matches in the tournament to advance to Saturday’s final at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis. The senior pinned Deakin with a half nelson after a scramble mid-way through the second period.
