The Cougar wrestlers put on a strong performance Thursday night at the first round of District 1’s 16-team play-off. Facing the Panthers of Quakertown, East won 10 of 14 bouts and wrapped up the dual with a 44-20 scoreline. Wade Cummings (132), Nik Zimmerman (138), and Alec Horne (170) registered pins for the Cougars while Brett Horne (120) won by technical fall. Lukas Richie (106), James Strommer (113), and Connor Birzes (126) added to the total with dominant major decisions. With the victory, East advances to the next rounds of D1 action next weekend at Upper Dublin HS. The stakes get higher and the competition gets hotter! Good luck Cougars!
