D-East continues impressive run advancing 7 to regionals!

This past Saturday (2/24), the East grapplers made their way to ol’ Prospect Park and the District 1 West championships at Interboro High School. The pressure was on as nine Cougars had to find their way into the top 4 to qualify for next weekend’s SEPA Regional tournament at Oxford.  In the end, East finished in second place with 104 team points and successfully advanced 7 wrestlers to the next stage. Lukas Richie (126) and Josh Wileczek (195) claimed individual titles while Brett Horne (138) found his rhythm and took 2nd. Keanu Manuel (106), Matt Romanelli (160), and Zach Aceto (285) stormed back after semi-final losses to capture 3rd place, while Jett Lucas-Murphy secured 4th. Congrats also go out to Jack Lawton (152), who took a non-qualifying 6th place, and Spencer Uggla (170) who went 1-2; both wrestlers picked up big wins for the team’s overall point total. East wrestling fans admire the team for a great showing at Interboro, rising above expectations and holding firm to the “no quit” mantra. Good luck to the remaining seven as they travel to Southern Chester County in one week to grab a golden ticket to Hershey!
