Impressive Weekend for Wrestling
The varsity wrestling team had a busy two days and much went well. Friday, the Quakers doubled the score on Germantown Friends School, 48-24, and Saturday's result was a third-place finish (among 13 teams) in a holiday event at Radnor.
Chris Johnson, Harold Anderson and Gene Naumovsky — juniors all — were able to start their seasons vs. GFS and each guy claimed victory. Sophomore Alex Koenig and senior James Frye also earned wins for coach Pete Shaifer on the mat. Non-mat wins? They went to sophomore Jordan Steinhouse, freshman TJ Henry, junior Billy Costello and senior Adam "He's a Beast" Cohen via forfeits. GFS' only points resulted from forfeits.
At Radnor, only seven PC guys were able to compete. Five placed first or second. The winners, in impressive fashion, were Naumovsky (pin in final), Koenig (likewise) and Frye, who captured what Shaifer described as "incredible match" to reach the semis. Anderson lost in a final and Costello placed third after having to shut things down due to an ankle tweak. The JV squad was well represented by sophomore Luke Mattice and freshman Sam Shemtov, who won their weight classes. Sophomore Alex Smith looked great in one of his triumphs.
