In the Quarterfinals, Jon lost by a score of 2-1 in overtime to the #2 seed from Malvern Prep, PA. He then rebounded strongly with a pin in the consolation round over CVCA, Ohio.

East Grapplers Dominate Cross Town Rival West


The Thunderhawk Grapplers came out strong Thursday night in the Hawks Nest and dominated cross town district rival Lakota West by a score of 48-27.

East won 9 matches to West's 5, which could have been worse due to a controversial illegal slam called on 113 lb. sophomore Cristian Chavez. Chavez was dominating his opponent and was on his way to lifting and returning his opponent to the mat for a fall and was called for an illegal slam. That was a 12 pt. swing in the match with West getting 6 where East would have received 6.

Falls for East were recorded by Jason Reeves (Fr., 106 lbs.), Alex Epstein (Fr., 113 lbs.), Jackson Leahy (So., 126 lbs.), Drew Katona (Jr., 182 lbs.), Kemal Sarvalov (Sr., 220 lbs.), and Jon Spaulding (Sr., 285 lbs.).
