Somewhat surprisingly, Mechanicsburg was able to place three semifinalists. Sophomore Brayden Wills had an easy road in the bottom of the 138-pound bracket, securing a major decision 9-1 win in round one followed by a pin in his quarterfinal match.
Senior Tristen Skelly used a first-round pin and a 7-4 decision over CV’s Jacob Schalles in the quarters to secure his spot in the final four of the 160 spots. Fellow senior Jonathan Vega had to work a bit harder with decision wins of 7-3 and 3-2 make the semifinals.
“Jonathan Vega – he’s laid back,” Mechanicsburg coach Greg Budman said. “We start screaming at him to try and get him to score and be more aggressive. He’s just a laid back kid.
“I think everybody’s wrestled well. We’re doing extremely well for as young of a team as we have.”
