On January 18, 2016, William Penn 160 weight class Junior Luis Rodriguez pinned Braden Porter in 2 minutes and 51 seconds, helping William Penn to defeat St. Georges Tech High School 32-29 at William Penn High School. William Penn wrestlers pinned three of St. Georges Tech wrestlers for an amazing win.
With a win, William Penn advanced with a 4-1 record for this 2015-16 wrestling season.
Despite, the close loss in the last wrestling match against Charter High School, they overcame that with a victory over St. Georges Tech High School.
Rodriguez said, “Overall, I know we deserve every little bit of it because, watching my teammates practice everyday just makes me a little more confident that we’ll be successful. As hard as we’ve been working throughout the season, I know that this is exactly where we’re supposed to be, while slowly getting better as time progresses.”
The team’s next meet is against St. Mark’s High School at William Penn High on February 06, 2016.
