The Cougars smother the Red Devils; Win 4th consecutive league title

The Downingtown East Wrestling squad captured their 4th consecutive Chesmont National title Friday night with a convincing 56-12 win over visiting Avon Grove. As they also celebrated “Senior Night,” the Cougars got pins from James Strommer (113), Jude McDowell (138), Austin Lillis (145), and Alec Horne (170). Wade Cummings (126) and Billy McGinley (220) collected major decisions to help pile up the points. On the JV front, pins from Josh Wileczek (195), Connor Birzes (120), Harris Alliger (126), and Phips Jules (182) helped propel them to a 44-16 scoreline and an undefeated finish in the Chesmont National to match their Varsity brethren. Congratulations to the team for finishing the regular season with a 22-4 mark, and a 5-0 record in the league. Good luck and best wishes to our Seniors, as well as many thanks to them for four remarkable years of service! Next up, the individual post season begins; it’s time to show up or go home as rounds of elimination face our best and brightest next weekend at the Chesmont League Tournament! Good luck Cougars!
