Downingtown East Wrestling closed out their 2015-2016 campaign on Saturday evening at the GIANT Center in Hershey, PA. The PIAA State Championships bring the strongest wrestlers from across this great state to battle for the illustrious medals awarded to the top 8 competitors in each weight class. After many bumps, bruises, and even tears, the Cougars finished their season with another state medal, a 5th place finish for senior captain Wade Cummings at 126 lbs. Wade went 4-2 at the tournament securing his second state medal and finishing with a career record of 181-14 wearing the blue and gold. His efforts and achievements will go down in Downingtown East wrestling history. Seniors James Strommer (113) and Alec Horne (160) also finished their high school careers in Hershey, going 0-2 in the event, but experiencing the thrill of unparalleled wrestling competition they’ll never forget. Congratulations and gratitude go out to these three Cougars, as well as their teammates, for a season filled with remarkable achievement and memorable moments! Good luck to all of the seniors as they step into the next phase of their academic/athletic careers and always remember that you will be in our thoughts! The coaching staff would like to personally thank the wrestlers, parents, boosters, and fans for making 2015-2016 a wrestling season for the ages. INVICTUS

Downingtown East Wrestling brings home some hardware!

As the snow could not stop the 2014-2015 PIAA Wrestling Championships in Hershey, PA, Downingtown East Wrestling marched forward and captured its second state medal in its 11 year history. Co-captain and 126 lb. standout Wade Cummings, claimed the 4th place prize and the honor of highest placing Chesmont League and Chester County wrestler with a tournament record of 4-2. Congratulations also go out to senior co-captains James Meyer (152, 1-2) and Billy McGinley (220, 3-2) who battled the toughest wrestlers in the commonwealth to etch their names in Downingtown East Wrestling history. The 14-15 season marked many milestones for the Cougars and their coaches, and their PIAA finish is a testament to their diligence and belief throughout the year. We’ll celebrate a memorable season next Sunday 3/15, with our annual banquet at Whitford Country Club, 5 to 8pm. Come with fond memories, an appetite for celebration, and a curiosity for what lies next for Cougar Wrestling: It’s never too early to plan for the next campaign! INVICTUS
