Corry wrestlers now head to states

Corry wrestlers now head to states

Haeleigh Bayle, Editor

Monday evening, February 7, the Beavers once again took on a very tough team, the Tyrone Golden Eagles. They wrestled Tyrone after they placed third in the Team Tournament last weekend at Sharon. With this very hard fought win (final score 36-29) under their belt–and Hershey chocolate bars in their hands–they are headed down to Hershey to compete at states as a team for the second time in the past three years.

The wrestlers left Corry at approximately 3 pm February 9 to start the long journey to Hershey. They paraded through the halls at 2 pm as well, so that Corry High could send them off with a boost of enthusiasm. The wrestlers are very excited, and rightfully so, as they are able to say they made it to states together as a team.

Tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm, Corry will take on Notre Dame-Green Pond at the Giant Center, located right in Hershey. On Friday February 11 they will wrestle another team that is to-be-determined. The matches against both Notre Dame and whomever else they will wrestle will be difficult and challenging, but they areĀ at states and will be wrestling the best teams of PA.

This opportunity does not come often to individuals or even teams, so the wrestlers making it to states is one thing they will remember for many years. On behalf of the newspaper staff and students at Corry High, we want to wish these wrestlers the best of luck in Hershey.
