Wyoming Seminary made their Eastern States Classic debut in style! The prep school from northeastern PA crowned five champions and outscored runner-up Shenendehowa by 89 points. Quite simply, they were dominating. They brought 13 wrestlers to the tournament…12 of them placed in the top eight. No other team placed more than 5!
Seven Section 9 wrestlers stepped on the podium led by Ethan Stanley’s third place finish.
