Mastic Beach, New York - On December 10, 2011 the William Floyd wrestling team hosted its sixth Annual Takedown Autism Tournament. Money raised by selling t-shirts, and breakfast and lunch items is donated to Autism Speaks.

This year over $2,000 was raised bringing the six year total to $22,000. The wrestling team will be presenting a check to Roseann Walsh, a representative from the Autism Speaks foundation later in the wrestling season.

Coach Tony Mecca holds the tournament dear to his heart because of his son Nicholas who was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old. He said, "We sponsor the tournament to get our wrestlers to think beyond themselves. There was some great wrestling at the tournament and I'm proud of my team. Wrestlers make sacrifices all the time but there is no greater gift then to sacrifice for others. A win for the wrestling team is a win for autism."

This year the William Floyd wrestling team won in the consolation to take 3rd place over Comsewogue, Smithtown West, and Mount Sinai.
