Happy New Year for Wrestling

Penn Charter's wrestling squad can't wait for 2016. Mostly because 2015 ended in wonderful fashion.

All but two guys are now active and 12 competed Tuesday in a tournament in Virginia. In 2014 the Quakers placed fifth in that event. This time? No. 1, baby! Billy Costello, Harold Anderson, Adam "He's a Beast" Cohen, James Frye, Alex Koenig and Gene Naumovsky won championships and all were dominant. TJ Henry, Sam Shemtov and Luke Mattice placed second while Jordan Steinhouse and Chris Johnson were third and fourth, respectively. Alex Smith looked great in the his first match, battling and frustrating the eventual runner-up.

Coach Pete Shaifer said of the experience, "The work over the holidays has paid off. Needless to say, the team looked impressive and is looking more and more confident."
