The Cougars must claw their way past the Royals in repeat contest!

The District 1 Dual tournament began Thursday evening 1/22 at WC Rustin. The Cougars felt they were comfortably seeded against familiar foe, Upper Darby. There was nothing comfortable about it. The dual finished in a 28-27 score-line, with Downingtown East picking up the winning point on criteria. Although the Cougars claimed victory, mediocre performances, injuries, and inadequate preparation led to a complete “dog fight” in Bayard Rustin’s gym. Nik Zimmerman (120) and Wade Cummings (126) picked up falls for East, while Dalton Burt (152) and Brent Czajkowski (182) won gritty matches to help secure victory. James Strommer (113) once again defeated a strong opponent to contribute. If the Cougars learned anything, it’s that past results mean nothing and every match is a new beginning. So, best to always be prepared to climb uphill. There are no easy rides in this sport! Good luck this weekend!
