PIAA Wrestling Scrimmages Week One

The first weekend of official PIAA wrestling scrimmages filled the gym at Downingtown East with numbers of anxious grapplers ready to turn on the heat. DE wrestled Norristown, Father Judge, Springfield (D), Octorara, and Lower Merion during a high intensity Saturday morning of drilling and live wrestling. Highlights included a heated battle between senior captain James Meyer (160) and PIAA place-winner from Judge, Idris White. A little further down the mat, junior Owen Morris (220) took on regional place-winner Shaheed White of Norristown while teammate James Strommer (113) banged heads with Shaheed’s favorite lightweight, Eric Fuentes. Nik Zimmerman (120), Wade Cummings (126), and Jude McDowell (138) also helped set the tone with lots of action in the neutral position and some grinding rides on top. Look out for Freshman Brett Horne (106); his development jumped a level as he put on a notable display against an array of lightweight opponents. Great job by all DE wrestlers today, including our returning football players, and good luck with practice week 2! Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, but not too much!!!
