Lebanon County Wrestling Results: February 4th

Over the weekend, there were three major wrestling events that took place involving Lebanon County athletes.  The first was Northern Lebanon fighting for their chance to move on to States.  The second was the Falcon Invitational that saw fifteen teams battling it out at Cedar Crest HS.  The final event was the Lancaster Lebanon League Junior High Championships hosted by the Elizabethtown Optimist Club.  In each case, Lebanon County was well represented.  Please see below for some of the key details about each event and how our local student-athletes fared.


District 3 AA Team Tournament

On Wednesday, Northern Lebanon lost their opening round match to Upper Dauphin in a heartbreaking 30-29 match.  They then entered into the consolation bracket and scored a 39-31 victory over Trinity.  As a result, they earned their chance to wrestle for the 3rd place spot, which would mean a trip to States.  On Saturday morning, they traveled to Cumberland Valley to wrestle against Bishop McDevitt.  They would first have to beat McDevitt and then win the 3rd place match-up later in the day.  Unfortunately, McDevitt proved to be too much for the Vikings, knocking them out of contention prior to the 3rd place match.  The final score of the match was 48-25.

This ends the team competition for Northern Lebanon, but they have several wrestlers who are expected to do well in the individual tournaments beginning with Sectionals on February 18th.



Falcon Invitational 

Cedar Crest played host to fifteen schools from across the eastern end of Pennsylvania for an individual competition.  In addition to wrestlers competing from Cedar Crest, Lebanon and Palmyra added to the contingent from Lebanon County.  When all the matches were finished, three area wrestlers were standing at the top of the podium, having grabbed gold.  They were Palmyra’s Tyler Detwiler at 107 pounds, Palmyra’s Nathaniel Foltz at 121 pounds, and the 4-time Lancaster Lebanon League from Lebanon, Griffin Gonzalez at 152 pounds.  Palmyra was the top area team, earning an impressive 3rd place finish.
