Recently the Sals wrestling team competed against wrestlers from across the state at the Delcastle Invitational, a stage for wrestlers to show how they are improving at the midpoint of the season.

The Sals were able to take home three of the fourteen weight class titles and were able to claim the team title for the second straight season. Following the Delcastle Invitational Salesianum’s wrestling was ranked third in the state.

Two-time DIAA defending state champion Zach Spence was able to win the 113 weight class, while fellow seniors Harry Latch and Colin Flower won their title matches in 138 and 182, respectively.

“Winning this meet meant to me that the practices are paying off and that the team is very strong and are ready to against some tough teams,” said Zach Spence.  “The team win is also a boost in confidence for us heading towards the end of the season looking for a state title.”

“The win is definitely a step in the right direction for the team,” said Harry Latch. “But we have to move forward and keep improving on the little things.”

The Sals continue their season with upcoming meets against Charter and Sussex Central where Colin Flower looks for revenge for the football state championship loss to SC.
