As a dual meet team, Palmerton's lack of depth is a shortcoming that has been difficult to overcome.
The Blue Bombers have been forfeiting as many as three weight classes per match, resulting in a 3-9 record.
Dig deeper, however, and one will find a young Bomber squad that is holding its own despite the lack of numbers.
"If you have looked at the matches we've wrestled without the forfeits, we would have lost only 2-3 of them," said first-year Palmerton coach Dave Lavin. "That's a good indication of what we're doing."
