In Monday's edition of Spirit Sports, the two Punxsy wrestlers who won the District-IX title in their respective weight classes Saturday at Clarion University — Seth Spack at 152 pounds and Perry Arrington at 138 pounds — were highlighted, but a record number of Chucks' wrestlers advanced to the regional tournament this weekend in Altoona.

In addition to Spack and Arrington's championships, three senior grapplers finished runner-up at the D-IX tournament. One of those seniors, Punxsy's Josh Neal (back) lifts DuBois' Brady Haines off the mat to earn a takedown in their semi-final bout at 182 pounds. Neal defeated Haines 6-0 to advance to the finals and give Punxsy five Chucks in the final round.
