Downingtown East reclaims lost title!

With a relentless team effort, the Downingtown East wrestlers took back a familiar championship over the New Year’s weekend! Returning to the 28-team Ralph Wetzel Classic at Hatboro-Horsham HS after falling several spots in the team finish last season had many of the Cougars anxious to get back. The team did not disappoint! After a hard-fought two days of competition, East reclaimed the team title with a haul of 175 points, surging above second place finishers Hatboro-Horsham who settled with 142. Keanu Manuel (106) and Lukas Richie (132) captured individual titles, while Brett Horne (138) finished with silver. Josh Wileczek (195) took home the bronze, Kyle Mittelstadt (126) and Matt Romanelli (170) came in 4th, Jett Lucas-Murphy (145) captured 5th, and Spencer Uggla (160) picked up a fall to secure 7th. In the Junior Varsity competition, Will Vincent (138) charged to his first title, while Billy Dyer (182) and Zach Sharaf (285) wrestled back hard for 3rd. Congratulations go out to the young Cougars for wrestling for each other, and putting together their best performance yet! ChesMont league competition starts after the holiday, so the celebration must be short-lived and the focus reset. Good luck Couga
