Ellwood City wrestling celebrated senior night on Friday, Feb. 6. Seniors David McCarthy, Jacob Mayle and Mike Sinclair were honored.
The team had their last home match against Mars. Although they lost 37-30, the wrestlers remain confident.
“Overall the season went well,” coach Craig Alberts said. “We had some holes to fill after losing so many seniors last year, and we had some injuries that could have made a difference in the close matches. We are a young team, and I am confident that our younger wrestlers will all improve and perform even better for the years to come.”
Lincoln High School hosts the Individual Section 1 WPIAL Qualifiers on Saturday, Feb. 14. Ellwood will have 12 athletes participating.
“We had some close matches that could have went better but for the most part our wrestlers have been working very hard and improving,” Alberts said. “The team is excited about the post season. All of our wrestlers have improved and are excited to compete and try and make it to the WPIAL tournament.”
