Wrestlers look for a sweet victory at Team States

By Payton Brooks, social media editor

The Panther wrestling team has had an incredible season, but it’s not over yet. They are now seeking gold at the Team State Championship in Hershey, Pa.

They qualified to go to Team States at the District Duals tournament on Feb. 4. At the Duals, they won 45-21 against Titusville in the first round, lost 53-13 against Reynolds, and then beat Fort Lebeouf 32-25. The team earned third place, so they had to travel to Moshannon Valley on Monday, Feb. 6 to see who would get to make the leap to Hershey. The Panthers did it again with a 37-21 victory.

“I think we’re going to do well, and I think we’re going to put forth our best efforts,” freshman starter Matt Posego said.

The first match the Panther’s have is at 4 p.m. on Feb. 9 against Bishop McDevitt. You can follow all the action on Twitter @PantherPressSHS.
