On Jan. 26 and 27, MT hosted the Lancaster-Lebanon League Tournament for both boys and girls wrestling. This was the 30th annual boys tournament and the first official girls tournament. While Township has hosted the boys’ league tournament for five consecutive years, this was the first official year that the girls’ tournament was hosted here as well. 

The boys team finished with an overall team score of 110.5 and placed seventh out of the 23 teams at the tournament. 

“Overall, I think that leagues was a good tournament for us getting ready into the postseason and getting used to wrestling tough opponents multiple times throughout the day in a full tournament,” said boys head coach Aaron Moldoff. “It was a good way to see where we are good and to see what we need to work on.”

 Kaedyn Williams (114) placed first with two pins, one major decision and one minor decision. Louis Malave (121) placed fourth with one tech fall, two pins and two minor decisions. Kamdyn Williams (127) placed sixth with three pins. Anthony Cummons (152) placed third with two pins and two minor decisions. Leighton Underwood (172) placed sixth with one pin and one minor decision. 

Kaedyn Williams, along with receiving first place, received the Kenneth W. Ober Outstanding Wrestler Award. With his first place win, Williams became a four-time champion of the L-L League tournament, the seventh wrestler to obtain this achievement. 

The girls team finished with an overall team score of 92.0 and placed fourth out of the seventeen teams at the tournament. Yenyia Terry (106) placed first with two pins. Bella Baccio (112) placed third with one pin and one minor decision. Ainsley Bounds (130) placed second with one pin. Laila Colon (136)  placed third with two pins. Isabella Valudes (142) placed third with one pin and one minor decision. Kylie Corradino (170) placed third with two pins and one forfeit. 

“This tournament meant a lot to me because I knew this would be my last chance to compete at the L-L League Champion Tournament,” said senior Yenyia Terry. Terry was the only girl on the team to place first in her weight class.
