DE Wrestling goes to the Ephrata Duals

On Saturday 12/6, the Cougar grapplers went to spring water country to take on a host of challenges at Ephrata’s annual Winter duals. East finished the day with a 3-1 mark, defeating Garden Spot 48-18, Daniel Boone 59-12, and Biglerville 50-14, but fell to Mifflin County 27-38 in the final. It was a back and forth battle between the two teams, but Mifflin was able to get the bonus points needed to distance themselves and secure the win. Going 4-0 on the day were Brett Horne (106), James Strommer (113), Wade Cummings (126), and Billy McGinley (220). Suffering only one loss were Jude McDowell (138), Austin Lillis (145), James Meyer (160), and the break-out wrestler of the season so far, Owen Morris (HWT). The highlight wrestler of the event was Nik Zimmerman (120), who earned a 2-2 record, but worked above and beyond to compete at one of the most difficult weight classes in the tournament. On the JV mats, congrats to Jarrett Hansen (113), Shea Milligan (126), and Josh Wileczek (220) for going undefeated and setting the pace for East JV squad! Now that the smoke has cleared, it’s time for the Cougars to lock in and focus on next week’s competition, the prestigious “King of the Mountain” tournament in Lock Haven, PA. See you in Mattown USA!!!
