Chesmont League wrestling continued Wednesday night (1/24) and the Cougars travelled down to Avon Grove to take on the Devils. The two teams have been at a few of the same competitions this season, but have not crossed dircect paths. With Chesmont placing implications, East was able to hold the line in a back-and-forth affair that saw them put on an average, but winning performance. The Cougars won the dual 43-31, and Keanu Manuel (106), Kyle Mittelstadt (126), Matt Romanelli (160), Spencer Uggla (170), Josh Wileczek (195), and Zach Aceto (285) collected falls. Lukas Richie (132) and Brett Horne (138) earned decisions to round out the scoring. Alex Hillestad (113) delivered a great performance as he staved off a major decision despite being undersized. Although it wasn’t their greatest outing, the Cougars know the season is long and more challenges await them. It’s time to get back to fundamentals and prepare for next week’s league conclusion at Boyer Gymnasium.
