On Saturday 1/12, D-East returned to Souderton HS to compete at their annual Big Red Duals. Injuries have really taken a toll on the Cougars, and this event made sure they remember! East finished with a 1-3 record defeating Tunkhannock 60-12, but falling to North Penn 45-29, Souderton 47-33, and Pennsbury 49-26. The competition was tough, and the Cougars did what they could as all available hands were on deck. Keanu Manuel (106) and Kyle Mittelstadt (132) went undefeated on the day, while Lukas Richie (138), Will Vincent (145), Spencer Uggla (170), Zach Aceto (220), and Zach Sharaf (285) all finished 3-1. Congrats also go out to Billy Dyer (182) who captured his first two Varsity wins during the tournament! Again, the Cougars showed more effort than the scores reflect, but only overall team health will help fix that. Good luck to the team and coaches as next week brings their home opener and another date at the Denver Duals where they will compete with their little brothers, Lionville Middle School!
