"Our wrestlers went out and competed tonight against a well coached and talented Towanda team," head coach Bryce Bitner said. "I think it showed a lot of growth from some of our wrestlers and areas of improvement we need to clean up. I'm proud of the way we went out and wrestled hard tonight."

In the Junior High match Towanda cruised to a 75-6 victory, handing the Hornets their 10th loss of the season. The Hornets' lone victory came by Jayden Dumm, picking up a 47 second pin fall against Aiden Davis.
