Donegal serves up the main entrée: BEEF! 

This past weekend (12/17-12/18), DE Wrestling braved the first ice and snow of Winter to go out and face the monster known as the Donegal Holiday Tournament at Donegal HS. Known as Mt. Joy, the town hosted wrestlers from throughout the state, but the only visible joy came from those who stepped on the line and made it through the battle. Teams like East Stroudsburg South, Troy, Upper Dauphin, Notre Dame and Canton travelled the miles to compete. In the end, the Cougars placed 6th out of 16 teams, finishing with 118.5 points. Lead by champion Brendan “Beef” McGinley (285), they had 8 total place winners with Lukas Richie (120) placing second, Brett Horne (132), Connor Birzes (145), Jake Neubaum (152), and Josh Wileczek placing 4th, Zach Aceto (220) placing 7th, and Jack Lawton (160) finishing 8th. Beef McGinley highlighted the tourney as the very last match where he defeated the top seed  Brandon Tomeo of Camp Hill 12-5. Congratulations to the Cougars for being the highest finishers from District 1 and continuing to compete at a high level despite their overall youth and inexperience. Next up, the Ralph Wetzel Classic in Hatboro; time to once again ready the troops! Merry Christmas to all!
