Eagles Nearly Golden at District Duals


Tyrone avenged their earlier regular-season loss against Huntingdon when it mattered most, beating the Bearcats in a 39-21 to advance to the finals of the Class 2A District 6 Duals Tournament.

In the finals immediately following the Huntingdon match, the Eagles fought every bout hard, nearly winning the district championship, but Forest Hills was just too much for the Eagles and they lost in a nail-biter 34-39.

The loss still advanced the Eagles to the next round of the state team tournament and will wrestle Corry at home on Saturday, February 5 for a chance to go to Hershey.

Sophomore Braden Ewing had an exceptional run and got two big wins at the tournament. Ewing managed to decision Huntington’s Gunner Singleton who was District VI’s top-ranked wrestler at 285. Ewing then had a quick pin against Dalton Gable of Forest Hills.

Senior Ashton Sipes got vengeance against Huntingdon’s Eden Wagner, who defeated Sipes in the team’s last meeting.  This time Sipes wrestled smart and earned an 8-1 decision over him. Then Sipes got a 16-second pin for the Eagles against T.J. Carroll 0f Forest Hills.

Against both Huntingdon and Forest Hills senior Zack Lash earned two pins that were under a minute. Lash enacted his signature ¨Lash Attack¨ on both wrestlers, sending them to their backs.

Junior Korry Walls got two pins but unlike Huntington’s 172 their 106-pound wrestler knew how to wrestle and refused to go without a fight, so Walls had to wrestle him 4 minutes and 29 seconds until he got the win. Against Forest Hills Walls pinned Isaiah Shilcosky in under a minute.

Senior Jason ¨Butch¨ Barr got 6 points on the board when he went head hunting at 215 where he pinned Huntingdons Poorman in just 48 seconds.

Sophomore Lukas Walk earned the Eagles 6 points after he pinned Huntingdon’s Eric Mykut in roughly 3 minutes.

Sophomore Andrew Weaver fought a tough match against Huntindon’s Tom McDivitt but Weaver out-wrestled him and after nearly 4 minutes Weaver got him on his back for the pin.

Junior Brody Klein earned himself a hard-fought 5-3 decision over Huntingdon’s Alex Gibson.

Sophomore Remington Fleck got 6 points on the board for the Eagles when Forest Hills Michuk rolled on his back.

Freshman Logan Rumberger got a 9-1 major decision over Forest Hills Adams.
