On Wednesday 1/31, East wrestling hosted it’s final home dual of 17-18, as well as it’s last league match against Coatesville. The night was competitive, but also celebratory as the Cougars paid tribute to departing seniors and their parents. The journey for seniors Josh Wileczek, Brett Horne, Jack Lawton, Vanshil Thakkar, and Nico Medina has been challenging, but also rewarding and memorable. East defeated Coatesville 45-25, winning 8 of 14 bouts, and sewing up 3rd place in the Chesmont National division. Kyle Mittelstadt (126), Lukas Richie (132), Jett Lucas-Murphy (145), Spencer Uggla (160), Matt Romanelli (170), PJ Grubb (195), and Zach Aceto (285) all recorded falls while Jack lawton (152) secured a decision. Senior captain Josh Wileczek (195) suffered his second loss of the season in an overtime bout, but now knows what it takes to compete at a high level for six minutes and beyond. Many congratulations and thanks go out to the team, especially to the seniors and their parents who have supported them along the way. Good luck and God speed!
