To qualify for the tournament, wrestlers must go through district and regional tournaments and earn certain places in order to qualify for the next round. Bishop McCort was represented by two Seniors Anthony Walters and Josiah Jones at the State Tournament. Both Anthony and Josiah have been to the championships already. As Juniors, they both earned 2nd place at the championship. Jones, who is planning on Wrestling at The University of Oklahoma this fall fell short of finals after being defeated in the Semi Final Round. He finished the tournament with a Bronze medal in the 285 weight class. Anthony Walters who signed to wrestle at Drexel University had an outstanding tournament, winning one of his matches in only 37 seconds! In total Walters only spent 1:27 on the mat in 2 matches to get to the semifinals. In his final match as a Crusher Walters came out victorious beating Derry Area’s Dominic Deluca 16-8 in the 220 weight class Final. The win made Anthony Walters the first ever Bishop McCort Wrestling State Champion. The wrestling program at McCort is in it’s second year after sepertaing from Co-Op Westmont.
