22-23 Closes For The Cougars

District 1’s finest gathered at Souderton HS this past weekend for the Southeast Regional tournament. The target was one of five coveted places per weight class, and 16 participants per weight. If a wrestler could grab one of the five, he would travel to Hershey for the PIAA State Tournament in one week. It’s a difficult target to say the least, and our own Adham Abouraya (285) took on the challenge but fell short. He lost his preliminary bout by fall and had to default out due to some ongoing injuries. However, Adham kept East’s streak alive of qualifying for the Regional tournament and will have the valuable experience he needs for his senior season next year. The season will come to it’s official close for East at our final banquet on Monday 3/13 at Iron Hill. The coaches and boosters hope to see everyone there. Although the team had many ups and downs, there are pieces to celebrate and wrestling days to look forward to. Our team is young and there is much potential to be realized. Everyone involved must see the greatness in this sport and what it instills in young student-athletes that many other sports cannot. Realizing this leads to a positive culture, and a positive culture leads to success, together as one. INVICTUS
