True freshman Tyson Searer,  a two-time PIAA state placewinner, claimed the starting spot at 197 pounds for East Stroudsburg by beating fifth-year senior Joe Blaes in wrestle-offs.

Searer finished seventh in the state as a junior for Lewistown and took third last year for Mifflin County, becoming the first state placewinner in Husky history.
