The Chester County JV Championships fly high at Downingtown East!

Downingtown East HS and Downingtown East Wrestling hosted the annual Chester County JV Championship tournament on Monday 2/16. The event was packed with young talent from across the county, including PAC-10 competitors O.J. Roberts and Springford, and county neighbors, Garnet Valley and Ridley. The tourney had some of the most challenging brackets in its history, with wrestling lasting clear up to 7:00pm. From the host team, Connor Birzes (120) and Brendan McGinley (220) claimed championships, while Phips Jules (182) and Carter Regitz (195) came in runners-up. Josh Wileczek (195) ran through the wrestle-back gauntlet to claim 3rd place. Great efforts were put in by all East-side JV grapplers including Shea Milligan (126), Harris Alliger (126), Jack Lawton (126), Charlie Roos (126), Praneeth Ramesh (132), Wayne Salt (145), Luke Moran (145), and Jack Clay (152). Congratulations go out to the entire D-East JV contingent for an incredible 14-15 season! Time to refuel, prepare for the off-season, and set new goals to come back and contribute on the Varsity next year!
