LEWISTOWN – Still undefeated!!!

“To be this far into it you have to have all 13 guys. Kyler’s match sealed the deal. But you think about all the other guys in between there and the jobs they did,” said MIfflin County coach Kirby Martin. “It’s awesome. Just like a kid like Lucas Sheetz who didn’t get pinned. It’s those things that are so important to winning a district title like this.”
