PIAA State Championships • Hershey PA • March 12, 2016
Hello Whippet family! The finale of our season ended in Hershey with two representatives falling short of medals but wrestling well. Overall, this was an exciting year with 14 wins and five losses and we have a lot to look back on and be proud of.
This season the Whippets finished 2nd at Chestmonts and the district tournament and it is fair to say it was because of their hard work and desire to do well. We had 12 guys advance to districts and nine of them are returning next season. We had six guys advance to regionals and five of them are returning next season. Doug and Cole Zapf advanced to states and they both are returning next season.
Looking forward, we have three freshman set to come up that have competed at the JR state tournament. There is no doubt that the Whippet wrestlers and their fans have a lot to be proud of and a lot to look forward to.
We do have one last farewell; although from Downingtown East, Wade Cummings has been a leader to look towards in the Chestmont. Wade placed 5th at this year state tournament and is leaving to head to NC State after graduation. He is leaving behind the most wins in the Chestmont with 181 in his high school career. Although it may be a while until this may be reached, it is certainly something to strive for.
Enjoy the off season and we look forward to next year!
