Six Wrestlers Qualify for National Prep Tourney
The wrestling team entered the postseason with aspirations of improving further on last year's 10th place finish in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Tournament.
The team did just that, finishing fifth with 131 points.
In addition, the team improved in that it earned six qualifiers for the National Prep tournament and produced a total of eight place winners.
Billy Costello made the finals and finished second. Others: Gene Naumosky, third; Alex Koenig and David Giorno, fourth; Harold Anderson, fifth; James Frye, sixth; TJ Henry, seventh; and Jordan Steinhouse, eighth. Wayne Derkotch and Sam Shemtov earned team points. Alex Smith continued to show improvement, but narrowly lost his last match.
The six qualifiers leave Thursday afternoon to travel to Lehigh University for the national tournament.
