The Cougars open the dual meet year at Ephrata!

Our Downingtown East wrestlers opened their competitive season this past weekend at the Ephrata Duals. Saturday saw the Cougars unveil their young starting line-up for the first time and achieve some positive results. They defeated Biglersville, Columbia, and Hempfield, but lost a tough one to Reading, and learned a tough lesson from Spring Grove. The day’s 3-2 record revealed some definite improvement as well as some clear needs to be addressed in the practice room. Seniors Jack Lawton (152) and Josh Wileczek (195) both went 5-0 on the day, while Keanu Manuel (106), Lukas Richie (132), Brett Horne (138), and Matt Romanelli (170) finished with 4-1 marks. Congrats go out to the Cougar grapplers for opening with a solid effort and setting the stage for next weekend’s first individual tournament at Archbishop Wood. Have a great week Cougars!
