PIAA Wrestling Scrimmages Week Two

This last weekend of November boasted the second window for PIAA wrestling scrimmages across the commonwealth. Our Downingtown East wrestlers travelled to PAC-10 powerhouse Springford, to take on the hosts, Quakertown, and Haverford Township. Once again, the gym was filled with talent and the wrestling was high-octane. After losing to Springford in last season’s District Dual semifinal, the Cougars found themselves in many familiar match-ups as James Meyer (160) battled Frankie Krauss and Alec Horne (170) went some tough rounds with Steve Rice. On the lower end, Wade Cummings (126) forced some highlight action with Springford’s PIAA medalist, Ryan Hayes. In the middle, senior Austin Lillis (145) did some terrific work against Springford’s Matt Krieble and Quakertown’s Tanner Seislove. Over in the “big boy room,” junior Brent Czajkowski (182) looked sharp against a room full of heavy bulldogs trying to sharpen their teeth. At the scrimmage’s conclusion, the team reviewed their day’s work and saw that much improvement had been made to go along with the bumps and bruises. Next weekend, the Cougars open up at the Ephrata Duals and the official whistles start to sound. Good luck Cougars!
