On Saturday 1/11, the Cougars once again travelled up to Souderton HS to take part in their 16-team “Big Red Duals.” The event is a true grind and the East grapplers felt it from the first whistle. They finished the day in 4th place going 2-2 as a team. They defeated Souderton 72-9 and Northeast 58-15, but fell to Central Dauphin 55-12 and CB East 43-26. The day had its share of ups and downs, but the team definitely learned a few lessons. Going undefeated 4-0 on the day were Keanu Manuel (113) and Zach Aceto (285). Finishing with 3-1 records were Ryan Loraw (106), Bo Horvath (152), Spencer Uggla (170), and Matt Romanelli (182). Next up for East is more league dual action with returning league champs WC Henderson. Good luck Cougars!
