Roll out the mats and wipe off the dust. It’s on.
Penn Manor takes on Hempfield tonight in a rival brawl here in Millersville.
Penn Manor will be led by coach Steve Hess in his 13th year.
The Comets will also be behind veterans such as, seniors, Bobby Rehm, Kevin Kann and Evan Singleton, and, junior, Tyler Funk.
The Comets will be missing four wrestlers to illness. Seniors, Brock Kauffman, Sam Zegley and Ryan Costarella will not wrestle. Adding to that list is, junior, Bo Perez.
Hempfield will surely not be a pushover, especially with coach Jude Bervinchak and his 17 years of experience at the forefront.
The Knights will also have their go-to-guys Austin Miller, Woodie Hermann, Nathan Kulp, Gary Pabon, Chris Cain, Dakota Minnich, K.J. Pederson, Austin Gattuso and Kyle Mogyorossy.
Tonight, the lights will dim and the fans will cheer as they witness Hempfield and Penn Manor duel it out for their first win of the year.
