D-East battles at District 1 Duals

Over the weekend, Upper Dublin High School hosted the final 8 teams in the annual District 1 Dual championships to determine qualifying teams for the PIAA State Duals. The house was packed and tensions were high! Friday night, the Cougars fell to 3rd seed Springford 43-18, but bounced back to defeat Council Rock North 45-21. The next and final day of this heated competition, East put forth a strong effort but eventually fell to Pennridge 36-28. Despite the results, the final standings show Downingtown East as one of the top 6 teams in the region and true contenders in that company. As the event concluded, James Strommer (113), Wade Cummings (126), and Austin Lillis (145) emerged 3-0, while Nik Zimmerman (120), Jude McDowell (138), James Meyer (160), and Billy McGinley (220) finished 2-1. Down in Delaware County, the Cougar JV squad competed at Penncrest’s annual “King of the Jungle” tournament. East finished with Jarrett Hansen (113) and Phips Jules (182) as champions while Connor Birzes (120) and Josh Wileczek (195) picked up silver medals. Congratulations go out to all of the Cougar wrestlers for delivering one action-packed weekend and making the most out of their hard work. Wrestling continues this week with remaining league competition and preparation for the individual championships. Let’s go East!
