This past weekend, Haverford High School hosted their annual junior varsity competition and Downingtown East sent their squad to rumble with the Fords! Other attending schools like WC Henderson, Father Judge, Upper Darby, and Ridley sent their future stars as well! It was a great day of action, and East finished with a number of place-winners! Sean Mullen (126), Alex Viscomi (132), and Billy Dyer (170) all claimed championships after going 4-0 on the day! Alex Hillestad (106), Alejandro Santiago (138), Connor Huntoon (145), and Jackson Swearhart (195) took silver medals, and first-year wrestler John Palladino (152) wrestled back hard to collect the bronze. Victor Cozzone (138), and Jeff Scott (145) all collected wins, but fell just short of the top three finishes. Collectively, the JV Cougars wrestled well and showed the improvement they’ve been earning with those hours in the practice room! Congrats goes out to the squad! Here’s to a bright future as these grapplers continue reach new levels!
