East journeys west to tackle the Hecker duals!

This past Saturday 1/17 saw the East-side Cougars pack the bus and travel to Garden Spot HS for their annual “Tom Hecker Duals.” The event commemorates the passing of a beloved Garden Spot coach and draws ten formidable teams from District 1 and 3. After the competition ended, the Cougars finished the day 4-1, again finding themselves against perennial power Central Dauphin in the final. They dropped the final 37-27, winning half of the contested bouts, but were unable to secure the bonus points needed to notch a win. On their way into the final, East collected victories against Dallastown 44-15, Upper Darby 49-15, LaSalle 54-12, and North Penn 58-18. Nik Zimmerman (120), Wade Cummings (126), James Meyer (160), Alec Horne (170), and Owen Morris (HWT) all went 5-0 on the day, while Bret Horne (106), James Strommer (113), Austin Lillis (145) and Billy McGinley (220) finished with 4-1 marks. At the JV competition, Jarrett Hansen (113), Phips Jules (182), and Josh Wileczek (195) all went undefeated with 3-0 finishes. Nice job to all DE wrestlers, and best of luck as more league action and a date with the District 1 Dual tournament approaches! Time to crank it up another notch!
