SHARON - And then there were four.
After the dust settled at the District 10 Class AA Wrestling Tournament at Sharon High School, Eisenhower and Youngsville will each send two wrestlers to next week's Northwest Region Tournament.
For Eisenhower, at 182 pounds, Trevor Spicer, and at 195 pounds, Jake Johnson, will make the trip after earning fourth place. Youngsville's Aaron Hoover and Jaykup Durlin both placed sixth at 113 and 220, respectively.

Eisenhower’s Jake Johnson, top, is one of four county wrestlers moving on to the PIAA Class AA?Northwest?Regional Tournament after a fourth-place finish in this weekend’s District 10?Class AA?Wrestling Championships at Sharon Area High School.
"Making it to the regional tournament is always a good thing, whether you're first through sixth, you still move on," said Eisenhower coach Kris Black. "Honestly, the difference between second and sixth can be a point."
After losing to the would-be runner-up in the semifinals, Spicer bounced back strong with a pin in the second period of his consolation semifinal match.
"Trevor wrestled a great tournament," said Black. "Coming in here, not many people thought he would've been in the top five, or even six, and to take fourth was just great, especially since he had a shot at making it into the finals. He was really close to winning in the semis."

Johnson also experienced the difference of just a few points in a 5-3 loss to the would-be champion; then again, although this time on the winning side, in the consolation semifinals where he scored a last-second takedown to win, 4-2, in overtime.
"Going into overtime, you have to be ready to do whatever it takes to get the win. He did it right at the end," said Black.
For first-year Youngsville coach Scott Ishman, sending two kids on means a lot.
"It's a good feeling," he said. "Being my first year, it's really great seeing them move on. Better placement would have been nice, but I can't be more happy."
As a freshman, Hoover has a few more years to worry about better placement, and a shot at becoming a rare four-time region qualifier.
"It's definitely a huge accomplishment for him," said Ishman.
Hoover battled his way back from a loss on Friday to a 12-4 major decision win against his opponent in the consolation quarterfinals to secure a trip to regions next week.
Durlin also used a big win in the consolation quarterfinals to secure a spot in the top six, though his win came in the form of a pin.
After losing a close match in the consolation semifinals, Durlin found himself in the fifth- and sixth-place bout against Parris Warner, an opponent he had beaten before. After three periods ended in a draw, the match went into sudden victory overtime, in which the first takedown wins. When that ended in a draw, the match went into a rideout overtime, and Durlin lost, 3-2.
"Jaykup beat Parris last week, lost this week, and he might face him again next week," said Ishman. "It was a tough loss for him here tonight. He was tired, it was a long weekend. But it's better to give up the loss this week rather than next week."
To move on to states, wrestlers must get in the top three at regions.
"Both guys are wrestling really well right now," said Black. "I think next weekend is a wide open tournament right now. Our guys have as good a shot as anyone there. Hopefully we'll have a good week of practice and be ready to go."
Youngsville is going ahead with the same mentality.
"Next week is wide open, you just have to be in the top three," said Ishman. "We're in good shape, it's just working on the things we saw here with style and fixing our little mistakes. We're going to target some big moves in case we get behind, at this point, hey, you have nothing to lose."
