Exeter wrestlers look to continue historic run

Exeter wrestlers in District III semifinals

REIFFTON - The Exeter wrestling team is the only one from Berks County that is still eligibile to win a District III title at the AAA level. The Eagles will meet Central Dauphin in the semifinals Thursday night at Spring Grove.

When the team took the mats in New Oxford Tuesday, the Eagles hadn't won a District dual in program history.

When the Eagles got on the bus to go home, that streak was history.

10th-seeded Exeter knocked off Solanco in the first round and South Western in the quarterfinals immediately after.

The two wins are firsts in program history at the District level.

The Eagles booked a spot in the semifinals Thursday against perennial power and 3-seed Central Dauphin, the same team that beat Wilson in the quarters.

Exeter knows it has broken ground for the program. But the Eagles also say that there is still more history to be made.
