Chambersburg faces tough road in District 3 wrestling

The pairings for the District 3 Team Wrestling Championships were released Sunday afternoon, and Chambersburg, which earned the No. 6 seed, did not catch a break.

The Trojans (12-3) will take on No. 11 seed Cumberland Valley (15-4) in the first round, which is Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Central Dauphin. CD (13-1), the No. 3 seed, meets No. 14 Lampeter-Strasburg (10-2) in the other first-round match.

Should Chambersburg defeat CV, it would likely have to wrestle the Rams in the quarterfinals, which are held the same night.

Of the Trojans’ three defeats this year, one was to Cumberland Valley (36-33) and one was just last Thursday to CD (47-19). The Eagles went unbeaten in the Mid Penn Commonwealth — all four of their losses came in dual tournaments earlier in the season (to Kiski, Central Mountain, Dallastown and Northampton).

Manheim Central (12-1) earned the No. 1 seed, followed by No. 2 Spring Grove (20-0), No. 3 CD, No. 4 Cedar Cliff (16-1), No. 5 New Oxford (13-3), No. 6 Chambersburg, No. 7 Cocalico (14-2), No. 8 Northern York (10-1), No. 9 Dallastown (13-3), No. 10 Gettysburg (13-3), No. 11 CV, No. 12 Garden Spot (10-2), No. 13 Exeter Twp. (14-5), No. 14 Lampeter-Strasburg, No. 15 Penn Manor (13-4) and No. 16 Governor Mifflin (14-7).
