On Saturday 12/10, the Downingtown East Wrestlers headed westward and competed in the annual Ephrata duals. Despite the young and fresh nature of the team, the Cougars performed like journeymen and collected 4 dual meet wins before falling in the event’s final. They defeated Ephrata 52-18, Biglerville 45-21, Hanover 59-12, and Reading 35-30. In the final, East gave maximum effort, but struggled against PIAA state ranked Spring Grove and lost on a 54-15 score. Undefeated Cougars on the day were Connor Birzes (145), Josh Wileczek (195), and Brendan McGinley (285). Congrats also go out to first time varsity DE wrestlers Kyle Mittelstadt (126), Spencer Uggla (138), Jett Lucas-Murphy (145), PJ Grubb (170), Kyle Hodges (182), and Zach Aceto (220) for picking up their first wins in blue and gold and contributing to a great day for the team. The Cougars now have a week to train, re-focus, and set their sights on the newly scheduled Donegal Invitational next weekend. Best of luck to all!
