The Cougars’ first 2019 league dual ends in defeat!

This past Wednesday, Chesmont league action opened up around Chester County. With many injuries and illnesses, Downingtown East hobbled down to Avon Grove HS to take on their first league opponent. The dual was brief, with few JV wrestlers, a number of forfeits, and a handful of pins. In the end, Avon Grove defeated East 36-35 and the Cougars left with heavy hearts. Keanu Manuel (106), Will Vincent (160), Spencer Uggla (170), and Zach Sharaf (285) recorded falls, while Zach Aceto (220), Kyle Mittelstadt (132), and Jett Lucas-Murphy (138) earned decisions. High honors go to senior captain Lukas Richie (138) who weighed a mere 135 lbs. and pushed up to the 147 lb. class to take on Avon Grove’s returning state qualifier and lost a razor thin 6-5 decision at the buzzer. He took the team on his shoulders to try and win the dual and should be praised for it. More dual action lies ahead in the coming weeks and hopefully the Cougars can get healthy, gather their wits, and focus on the future.
