Coach Andy Fitz celebrates his school record with his father, and previous record holder, Vince Fitz.

On Feb. 7, 2024, Del Val Terriers wrestling beat the Gulls of Point Pleasant Beach 81-0.

Del Val has won eight of the last ten sectional titles, and this is the third in a row for the team. This win was big for coach Andy Fitz as well, as he set a new school record.

Fitz’s 285 wins is the new school record for a wrestling coach. Vince Fitz, who had held the record until his son passed him, was thrilled for his son.

“Wonderful, it’s as good as it gets,” said Vince Fitz. “I’m the only guy who’s ecstatic to have his record broken.”

Fitz also broke his father’s record at the same school: Del Val.

“I’m real proud of Andy for continuing the 62 year tradition of success here in wrestling,” said Vince Fitz.

Coach Fitz kept his focus on the rest of the season.

    Hey Vince,
    I am pleased to read about both your and your son’s successes at Delaware Valley! You should be justifiably proud of the formidable dynasty you have created there. I am retired living in Cape Coral, Florida.
    Your HCHS sparring buddy,
    Joe Hager
