BELLEVILLE, NJ – Santino Imparato, of Belleville High School, who is a member of Buccaneers’ varsity wrestling team, recently earned the 2018 Investors Bank Best Teammate Award. Santino was recognized during ceremonies held at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center. Best Teammates are selected by athletic directors and coaches from high schools in the Super Essex Conference (SEC). Each SEC high school selects one student-athlete who consistently leads by example, arrives early for every practice, works hard, inspires team spirit, and positively encourages players to do their best on the wrestling mats and during the off season. SEC high schools selected 33 students as Best Teammates.
