Despite a ninth-place team finish at Saturday’s PAC-10 wrestling championship at Boyertown High School, four Phantoms will advance to the district round, The Phoenix is reporting.
Sophomore Garrett Serwatka (106 pounds), senior Ed McCarthy (113 pounds), senior Jordan Valenteen (195 pounds) and sophomore David Rosati (285 pounds) each earned fifth-pace finishes for Phoenixville, just enough to advance to the district round next weekend at Spring-Ford.
Phoenixville coach Joe Youngblood said he was pleasantly surprised by the performance of the quartet, but singled out heavyweight David Rosati for praise.
“We got four out,” Youngblood told the paper. “Garrett Serwatka, Eddie McCarthy, Jordan Valenteen and David Rosati surprised us. He came out and wrestled a great tournament. He wrestled great and he wrestled tough to get where he was. He surprised us and we are proud of him.”
Boyertown won the team title.
