Journeymen Freestyle Classic
This was without question the toughest individual high school freestyle event that this region has ever witnessed!  Along with attracting some of the best high school freestylers from the US, Coach Frank Popolizio was able to get teams to fly in from Russia, South Korea, Lithuania, and Italy!  Section 9 was fortunate enough to have 4 wrestlers entered in the invite only event.  Congratulations to MW junior Evan Barczak for capturing the title in the 145B pool.  Barczak notched two 10-0 tech falls, pinned a National Prep placewinner, and recorded a 9-4 win over a PA state placer!  Great job Evan!
