YORK DISPATCH STAFF REPORT

The Spring Grove wrestling team saw its team season come to an end on Thursday night after losing to Cedar Cliff, 36-30, in the consolation semifinals of the District 3-AAA tournament at Spring Grove High School.

The fifth-seeded Rockets were tied 24-24 with the No. 3 Colts heading into the final four bouts, but a 4-2 loss by Chance Jackson at 120 pounds gave Cedar Cliff a 27-24 lead. The Colts wound up winning two of the three bouts that followed, securing a spot in the state tournament for Cedar Cliff, while Spring Grove’s bid fell just one step short.

On Wednesday night, however, the two foes’ wrestling match got pushed to the back burner to celebrate something even bigger. Before the match, the Red Lion wrestling program celebrated its 50th anniversary, complete with a social, an alumni celebration and then the match to cap it all off.

For a team that faced relatively little adversity all year long, the Spring Grove Rockets’ wrestling season will now hinge on how well they can bounce back from a tough defeat.

The fifth-seeded Rockets were handed a 47-18 loss against No. 4 Exeter Township in the District 3-AAA quarterfinal round on Tuesday night at Exeter, forcing them into the consolation bracket. Now, in order to qualify for the state tournament, Spring Grove must win its next two matches on Thursday. The Rockets will open against No. 9 Cocalico. A win there will move the Rockets to the next round against the loser of the Cumberland Valley-Cedar Cliff contest. CV is the No. 2 seed and Cedar Cliff is the No. 3 seed.

All season long, it was expected that the York-Adams League Division I wrestling title would come down to the winner of the South Western-Spring Grove match.

Sure enough, it did on Wednesday night, one night after the snowstorm from this past weekend postponed it a day. All that did, however, was help to build the anticipation, with a sold-out Spring Grove gymnasium and two raucous student sections engaging in their own battle.

It could be weeks until we’re done feeling the aftermath of winter storm Jonas.

Some people are still trying to shovel themselves out from the two-plus feet of snow that dumped on York County over the weekend. For the most part, however, streets are clear and normalcy should return soon.

Wrestling bouts put on hold: On Tuesday, two major wrestling events were postponed. To start, the Y-A League Division I title will be on the line when South Western finally travels to rival Spring Grove. Both teams are unbeaten in division competition. That match was postponed on Tuesday until Wednesday, Jan. 27.

Both Spring Grove coach Tony Miller and South Western’s Nate Murren were hoping the match would be held on Tuesday, as scheduled.

However, the local high school sports scene could be one entity that will suffer from the aftereffects of the blizzard for the foreseeable future.

It’s commonly said that one of the hardest things to do in sports is defend a championship.

Kennard-Dale’s wrestling team won its first-ever York-Adams League Division II crown last season, and has the honor of trying to repeat that feat this season. It hasn’t been without hardships, however, with multiple wrestlers out for the season with injuries, forcing the Rams’ coaching staff to juggle lineups nearly every match.

EMIGSVILLE — There are few things in wrestling more exciting than the final bout deciding the outcome of a match.

When the final two competitors are almost evenly matched, it increases the energy even more.

That was the case Thursday evening when Central York played host to Red Lion in a York-Adams Division I battle. With the Lions holding a two-point lead heading into the 285-pound bout, the fans at Central were on the edge of their seats.
