This past weekend (1/13) saw the Cougar grapplers head back up the Northeast extension to Souderton HS and the Big Red Duals. The 16-team event brings in competition from all over the region and beyond to battle it out for a dual meet championship. After a day’s worth of wrestling action, the Cougars took 5th place going 3-1 on the day. They defeated Penncrest 51-18, Pennsbury 56-19, and Methacton 46-25, but fell in the quarterfinals to host Souderton 27-36. Keanu Manuel (106), Lukas Richie (126), and Josh Wileczek (195) were undefeated on the day going a perfect 4-0. Jett Lucas-Murphy (145), Matt Romanelli (160), and Zach Aceto (285) all went 3-1. Congratulations to East for staying tough on a long day and continuing to improve despite the odds!
