On Wednesday evening, the East side Cougars began their Chesmont National campaign while visiting the black and red of Coatesville. By the evening’s end, it was the blue and gold who emerged victorious. The Cougars defeated Coatesville 45 -17 winning 10 of 14 bouts and securing 5 falls. Brett Horne (106), James Strommer (113), Nik Zimmerman (120), Jason Gibson (182) picked up falls along with junior captain Wade Cummings (126), who notched his 100th career win when the ref slapped the mat. In the bout of the night, senior captain James Meyer (160) continued his rampage in District 1 by defeating another regionally ranked opponent in Zach Dellicompagni, 5-2. And once again, East light-heavyweight Owen Morris topped another monstrous opponent in 284 lb. Chris Bermudez 7-5 to give the Cougars another fine performance in the line-up’s top shelf. Congrats to the team for breaking the league ice and collecting the victory, but now it’s time to move on as the “Rage in the Cage” approaches this Saturday.
