I am very happy to see the boys doing so well and heading to Regions. They have all worked hard under their new coach Marc Cuniglio. The report above missed one of the other wrestlers Walter Fox who came in 1st place in his district 26 finals. Moorestown put 7 kids into the semi finals of the District 26 tournament and all 7 received medals allowing them to enter the Region 7 tournament. Jake Dever, son of Jay Dever, won his heavy weight division in Districts 26 which makes them the first father and son district champs in Moorestown history. I truly hope Jake can now surpass his father's high school legacy in wrestling. To do it though he is going to have to win it all and place 1st in states as his father placed 2nd in 1975. I wish him and the rest of the boy the strength and will to reach their goals. The boys left are in the home stretch of the season. I am proud of them all.

I almost forgot. congrats to Tyreek on winning his 2nd district title. You got the first 2 hardest ones out of the way on your way to being a 4 time district champ. Keep on working hard Tyreek, I want a reason to go to States!
