2021-22 Team Outlook: The team is looking to continue their streak in the league and be competitive within District XI at the AAA level. We are looking forward to putting fans in the stands at numerous competitions that will be hosted at Martz Hall (5 dual meets and 2 dual tournaments). Case Flynn Duals will be hosted on December 11th and the Mats on the Mecca on January 8th. The varsity will compete at the prestigious King of the Mountain Tournament, travel to May River, SC for an invitational between Christmas and New Year’s, and enter the Burgettstown Tournament at the end of January.

Connor Demcher, Dalton Monger, and Parrish McFarland start the season in the state rankings and all realize this is only a ranking and it will take hard work and dedication to reach the mats or the podium in Hershey. There is also quite a few newcomers that could make an immediate impact and help the team reach their goals.
