On top of things
Zach Ishman gets the jump on Saegertown’s Donald Baron during their 160-pound match on Monday at Youngsville High School. Ishman would go on to pin Baron, but the Eagles fell to the Panthers, 49-24.
"We put our good (wrestlers) against theirs and I think we did well," said Youngsville coach Scott Ishman. "They brought some of their studs looking for easy points, but you can't take it away from them. That's why they're ranked (third in District 10 Class AA). I thought the kids wrestled hard, and now we're looking towards playoffs."
With the regular-season schedule completed, the Eagles will now travel to Union City High School on Friday to compete in the Section 1-AA Tournament.
