Red Lion, York County -- It was opening night for the AAA bracket of the District III wrestling tournament. Sixteen teams entered the post season and after a double header of matches at four area sites we would be down to just four survivors.
Red Lion High School was one of those sites and in their quarterfinal third seeded Dallastown took on Spring Grove who upset Northern York in the the first round. The Wildcats earned their spot in the quarters by knocking off Conrad Weiser
Adam Karlie, Sam Druck and Brooks Gable pinned their way to a big opening lead for Dallastown, while William Smyser fought like crazy to win his bout and keep the Rockets in it. In the end Dallastown was just too much claiming a 51-18 victory.
