East scratches away and snags 5th place at District 1 Central tournament!

Once again, the Cougars surpassed expectations and left a clear mark at this season’s District 1 Central tournament at Quakertown High School. East’s nine qualifiers let it fly and secured a 5th place finish out of 20 teams amassing 93 points. Lukas Richie (113) took his second title in two weeks with a solid 7-4 victory in the finals. Brett Horne (126) and Connor Birzes (138) wrestled strong back through the consolations to take 3rd place finishes, while Brendan “Beef” McGinley pushed himself into the championship finals, but was unable to compete due to injury and settled for 2nd place. Josh Wileczek (195) fell one place short of advancement taking 5th, but will serve as the first alternate should his number be called. Congrats also go out to Jett Lucas-Murphy (145), Jake Neubaum (152), Jack Lawton (160), and Zach Aceto (220) who were able to register wins, but unable to get in the placing rounds. Coaches and fans would like to wish the remaining four the best of luck at next weekend’s regional tournament at Souderton. May Cougar pride carry you all the way to the top five and a ticket to Hershey!
