This past weekend was the beginning of the 2016-2017 winter sports high school season.

While the boys’ and girls’ basketball tip-off tournaments garnered much of the attention, York County’s wrestlers put on some performances that should not be overlooked.

To start, the always dangerous Spring Grove wrestling team easily wrestled its way to first place at the Ephrata Duals. The Rockets went 5-0 and didn’t face much of a challenge in any match. They crushed Waynesboro, 60-14; followed that up with a 58-13 win over Reading; rolled past Hempfield, 65-6; downed Biglerville, 75-6; and then finished off Downingtown East in the championship match, 57-15.
