In a rare Friday night event, Downingtown East wrestling travelled to Octorara HS for the school’s first ever “George Heebner Invitational,” an 8-man individual tournament. The Cougars fought hard and managed to secure a 5th place team finish out of the 8 teams participating. Noah Pagaduan (145) was East’s lone finalist and he took the championship with a first period fall. Ryan Loraw (152) wrestled back to take 3rd, while Valen Piff (106), Connor Huntoon (172), and Tommie Grizzanti (189) took 4th. Rookie sensation Felix Mason (215) went 2-1 on the evening to take 5th. Great job to all the East grapplers and good luck this upcoming week!
