On Wednesday 2/13, East wrestling traveled out to Bucks County to take on the Neshaminy Redskins in a final non-league dual meet of the season. The Cougars knew the ‘Skins would be tough and well prepared as one of the more successful teams in District 1, but the line was drawn and the challenge had to be met. Neshaminy had too much fire-power and the battered Cougars gave all they had in a 49-24 loss. Keanu Manuel (106) and Lukas Richie (132) picked up falls for East, while Zach Sharaf (285) collected a forfeit. Jett Lucas-Murphy (138) and Spencer Uggla (170) both won hard-earned decisions for East’s remaining wins. As the dual meet season concluded, the Cougars finished 10-12, falling short of the .500 mark. There were many misfortunes with the team this season, among them, significant injuries and the lack of experienced members, but there was always a willingness to learn and fight. Hopefully, these values will continue on in the post-season and the years to come as East looks to rebuild. Good luck to all of the wrestlers as the Chester County JV Championships and the inaugural District 1 West tournament loom!
