GRATERFORD — Spring-Ford accomplished something on Saturday that it hadn’t quite been able to do the last two years when it took home the championship trophy of the Southeastern PA Wrestling Classic at Perkiomen Valley High School. That came despite putting a young team out on the mat that included only two seniors and several members who were just coming off a long football season.
Senior 126-pounder Sean Hennessey led the way for the Rams, winning his third straight Classic gold medal, and three of his teammates placed second as Spring-Ford – the runner-up the last two years – racked up 213.5 points and finished 40 points ahead of North Penn in the 16-team field.
Perkiomen Valley junior Nick Giangiulio won the 152-pound title and did not allow a single point the entire tournament while winning three decisions, the last two by 1-0 scores. The Vikings wound up ninth in the team standings.
