MECHANICSBURG, Pa. -Waynesboro High School wrestlers have fought fiercely all year, earning an overall record of 15-1 and a perfect record in their Mid-Penn I League. However, they've never faced anything as fierce as the hordes of cheering, foot-stomping fans packed into every corner of the Cumberland Valley High School gymnasium.
In their first appearance at the Pennsylvania District 3 team championships, the Indians lost the semifinal match to the Warwick Warriors, 33-27.
"These kids have never competed at this level of intensity before," said a tearful Waynesboro coach Tim Ireland, indicating the wall-to-wall screaming for matches still in progress. "I hope they got so excited by it that they can't wait to come back next year. After all, we're still a young team."
