DE Wrestling “three-peats” as Chesmont Tournament champions!

chesmont2015Congratulations go out to the Downingtown East Wrestling team as they secured their 3rd straight Chesmont League Tournament championship with a total of 205 points. Held at WC Rustin high school, the event brings together the Chesmont National and American teams to put their skills to the test and see who rises supreme. The Cougars ended the event with 4 champions: Wade Cummings (126), Austin Lillis (138), James Meyer (152), and Billy McGinley (220), who all won by fall. Jude McDowell (132) and Alec Horne (170) finished with silver medals after tightly contested matches. Nik Zimmerman (120), Brent Czajkowski (195), and Owen “The Horse” Morris (285) battled through wrestle-backs to take consolation bronze. Other place finishers were Brett Horne (106) who came in 4th, James Strommer (113) who took 5th, and Jason Gibson (182) who collected 6th after an injury. Dalton Burt (152) and Jack Clay (160) battled but came up short of the podium. The Cougars will advance 12 out of 14 wrestlers to next weekend’s District 1 Central tournament at Wissahickon HS. Good luck to the advancing wrestlers and job well done to the D-East program for continuing their hard-earned success!
