WRESTLING

Tamaqua at

Hamburg Duals

Tamaqua competed in the Hawk Mountain Duals at Hamburg and came away with some impressive highlights on the day's event.

Individually, Colin Mashack earned his 100th win in his career, as he collected five pins throughout his competition at the 126-pound weight class. His career record now stands at an impressive 101-21.

Also earning remarkable outings were Dylan Rynkiewicz (132) and Kyle Oliphant (182). Rynkiewicz muscled out four pins and a forfeit, while Oliphant matched that same effort with four mat-slappers, as well.

Forfeiting five different weight classes in each of their team's matches limited their chances of garnering a team win on the day.
