The senior from Gettysburg is now Pennsylvania's winning leader of a high school wrestler at age 73. That number is only expected to increase
ADAMS COUNTY, PA. – Gettysburg High School competed with the Giant Center with six mats high school wrestling action on Saturday.
The home team looked at home all day.

But all the teams involved know that a day with teams like Gettysburg, Chambersburg, Palmyra, Red Lion, Big Spring, and Biglerville will all make them better in the long run.
"I'm grateful that we had the opportunity to wrestle in five games," said Biglerville coach Ken Haines. "It's quality games and we're having a great time. My boys were ready to wrestle and really wanted to get back on the mat. We had a lot of exercises and they rarely wanted to leave."
