### PIAA Team Tournament Sparks Latest High School Wrestling Standings

Bishop McCort faced setbacks in its initial three PIAA Class 2A team tournament matches against West Perry, Burrell, and Chestnut Ridge, encountering five losses, three of which were forfeits. The team then endured a defeat against Faith Christian in the state final, where they lost nine bouts, including one by forfeit, concluding the match with a score of 46-18.

Despite dealing with injuries and not being at full strength, Coach Ben Clymer’s Lions delivered an outstanding performance in their final team appearance. They showcased dominance by winning 38 out of 52 bouts, with four losses attributed to forfeits resulting from an injury to Kole Davidheiser during the Beast of the East event in December.

The Lehigh Valley region demonstrated its wrestling prowess with all five teams that journeyed to Hershey securing top-four finishes: Faith Christian and Bethlehem Catholic clinched championships, Easton emerged as the 3A runner-up, Notre Dame-GP secured 2A third place, and Pennridge claimed 3A fourth place.

The Rams surely revisited several matches repeatedly, especially considering that their last four duals were decided by margins of 6, 2, 6, and 4 points, respectively. This marks the conclusion of the team segment of the high school wrestling season.
