Congratulations to Jarod Loose who placed third in the PJW Area IX Championship. The competition was fierce. Dylan Bard and Seamus Mack went 1-2 and did not place. Connor Harbaugh dropped both of his matches. Area IX is comprised of the following Counties in South Central PA: Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, Schuylkill, & York. The top two place winners go one to represent Area IX in the State Championship on March 22nd and 23rd at the PA Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA. There are eleven areas in the state that form a 22 man state tournament bracket. Good effort and great experience Hempfield wrestlers!
