Mifflin County-Altoona Preview

| December 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Mifflin County wrestling team brings a 4-1 mark into tonight’s matchup with Altoona, fresh off a third-place finish at the Mountaineer Tournament over the weekend.

The Mountain Lions,  making their season dual meet debut, bring seven starters back from last year. Leading the way are seniors T.J. Brandt (138), Mante Barnes (220), Markief Knode (170), and Austin Rosenberry (285), along with sophomore D.J. Hollingshead (132).

Barnes, Hollingshead and Rosenberry won Mountaineer titles, while Jeff Bryan (106), Trenton Kephart (182), and Knode finished second. Brandt was absent due to a recruiting trip to West Point.

The Huskies are coming off a solid third-place finish at the Ephrata Duals. Mifflin County cruised to victories over Daniel Boone, Columbia, and Ephrata before falling to Downingtown East. The Huskies regrouped to defeat Garden Spot 52-17 for third.

Two big matches that could be on the docket are Lucas Besch hooking up with Brandt, and Kyle Kahley taking on Rosenberry.

Altoona could bump up Brandt and Hollingshead and make things really interesting. Only time will tell.
