The Cougars carve a path to the big dance!

The first weekend in March traditionally ushers in Southeastern PA’s District 1 Regional wrestling tournament. This past weekend was no different. Over 60 high schools from the four counties sent their district’s best to compete at the regional for a berth at the following weekend’s PIAA State Tournament, the penultimate event. From East, the remaining four of Keanu Manuel, Lukas Richie, Spencer Uggla, and Zach Sharaf put their training to the test. In the end, East finished in 9th place out of the entire 60 team field, qualifying two wrestlers for the state tournament. Senior co-captain Lukas Richie finished out his District 1 career with the 132 lb. championship and a gold medal. At 106 lbs, Keanu Manuel took 4th place and also booked his spot at states. The magical run of junior Spencer Uggla at 160 lbs. resulted in a 6th place finish, one place shy of a birth. And Zach Sharaf at heavyweight, with just two years of wrestling under his belt, went 0-2 at the tournament, but proved his potential is there. The final week of competition is upon us, and DE Wrestling and community would like to congratulate our regional competitors on a great performance, and wish our state qualifiers the best of luck up on the mats at Hershey! See you in Chocolatetown!
