Ah, that's more like it.

After having to deal with rough, early-season sledding due to injury, illness and inexperience, Penn Charter's wrestling team fared VERY well Saturday in its first action of 2018.

In fact, the Quakers resembled a blizzard.

In the Lions Dual Meet Tournament, hosted by Academy of the New Church, PC roared to five wins and outscored its opponents, 277-82 The respective scores: Cheltenham, 58-21; ANC, 58-18; Lower Moreland, 51-15; McDevitt, 40-22; Westmont Christian, 70-6.

Four guys rolled to 5-0 marks — seniors Alex Koenig and Dante DiStefano, junior T.J. Henry and soph Jess Anderson. Seniors Jordan Steinhouse/Luke Mattice and junior Wayne Derkotch posted 4-1 records while soph Matt McGlinchey went 3-2.

Junior Sam Shemtov continued his improvement by providing stiff competition for high-quality foes.

Also, the freshmen racked up a 16-2 record in varsity matches. Nate Miner and Tone DeMarco headed that crew with perfection.
