Milkowich, Carpenter Reach Medal Stand at District Wrestling
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Matt Milkowich and Joey Carpenter reached the medal stand last weekend during the District 1 Class 3A Section North Tournament. Milkowich (113 pounds) and

Joey Carpenter, top, rallied from an opening round loss to

reach the medal stand at the District 1 Class 3A Section

North Tournament.

Carpenter (126) each finished in fourth place on Saturday, Feb. 20 at Quakertown High School.

            The duo helped paced the Indians to 22 overall points and a 14th place finish out of 25 teams. Both qualified for the Southeast 3A Regional Tournament, scheduled for Feb. 27 at Oxford High School.

            Shane Freeh (132), Keaton Durning (145) and Damon Faraco (215) also competed for the Indians.

            Milkowich (9-4) opened his tournament with a first-period fall against Souderton's Luke Ragusa. A 9-3 loss to Sam Kuhns, a freshman from Pennridge, in the semifinal round knocked him into the consolation round.

            The Tribe junior responded with a 15-9 victory over Abington junior Jake Werner in the consolation semifinals to advance to the next tournament. However, the No. 2 seed lost 6-0 to Luke Reitter, a ninth grader from Council Rock South. 

            "Matt made some adjustments during the tournament to make his offense more effective," Indians head coach Steve Adam said. "We'll need more practice time for him to get back on track."

            Carpenter (8-5) rallied from a 14-2 loss to Jake Neill, the No. 2 seed from Council Rock South, to advance to the third-place bout with consecutive falls. Despite falling behind 4-0 early, the senior pinned Central Bucks East's Andrew Oram in the third period, then decked Calvin Lederer, a junior from Neshaminy, in 35 seconds.

            "Joey's career was in jeopardy," Adam said of Carpenter, seeded seventh in his class. "But he never stopped battling."

            In the third place bout, Upper Merion's Ayden Cheng pinned Carpenter less than a minute into the second period.

            Branden Rozanski, Upper Perkiomen's standout ninth-grader, reached the consolation semifinals at 106 pounds after suffering a 1-0 opening-round loss to Cavan Kinne, a returning state qualifier from Council Rock South. However, he suffered a season-ending loss to another returning state qualifier, Tony Burke, a junior from Council Rock North. In between, Rozanski (9-3) registered a third-period fall against Tony Lindgren, a senior from Pottsgrove.

            Adam described the 106-pound weight class as the toughest in the tournament. He said it was difficult to seed, and that Rozanski – as the No. 7 seed – received a tough draw.

            "It was a great experience for Branden," Adam said. "He wrestled really tough."
