West-ern Wayne continued its historic wrestling campaign this weekend at the District Two Championships.
Under the watchful eyes of Coach Dante Terenzio, the ‘Cats clawed their way to a 4th place finish in the overall Class AA standings.

Morgan Fuller, Beau Fuller, Joseph Ingaglio, Matt Rosensweet, Conner Rosen-sweet, Garrett Enslin and Manny Mirailh will all represent the school at this year’s event...which gets underway Friday evening at Willamsport Area.
“Seven is the most we’ve ever gotten through to regionals in school history,” said Coach Terenzio. “I’m very happy with that number. As far as the team score goes, we probably could’ve done a little better, but the main goal is getting kids to regionals. So, I’m fine with 4th place.”
