Rozanski, Godshall Reach Medal Stand at Districts
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Two of Upper Perkiomen's lightweights reached the medal stand at last weekend's District One Class 3A North Tournament.

Brandon Rozanski, top, controls Perkiomen Valley's Luke Hanlon during

his first match last weekend at the District One Class 3A North Tourna-

ment. The Upper Perkiomen sophomore finished third at 113 pounds.


            Brandan Rozanski finished third at 113 pounds. Brandon Godshall ended up fourth at 120 during the tournament, held Saturday, Feb. 26, at Perkiomen Valley High School. Both advance to this weekend's Southeast Regional Tournament.

            Rozanski (31-4), who entered the tournament as the No. 3, overcame a quarterfinal round 3-1 loss to Boyertown's Luke Heimbach to reach the medal stand. He won two bouts in the consolation round, scoring victories over Doug Cawley, a junior from Norristown, (7-0) and Souderton's Charlie Arobone (3-0).

            "Brandan can rack up points in a hurry," Adam said of Rozanski, who opened his tournament with a first-period pin of Perkiomen Valley's Luke Hanlon. "He always wrestles a full match and is focused on scoring points."

            Like his classmate, Godshall opened his tournament with a win, a first-period fall over Norristown's Adam Gonzalez. However, the No. 8 seed was then defeated by a Boyertown wrestler. Gavin Sheridan, a sophomore and a returning state qualifier, posted a 6-0 win.  Adam described Sheridan, the No. 1 seed who defeated Rozanski twice during the season, as a challenging opponent.

            "[Sheridan] is the real deal," the coach said. "He's got a ton of horsepower. Brandon wrestled very well. He kept the match close."

            Rozanski will open the regional tournament Friday at Oxford Area High School against Jinuk Han (20-7), a junior from Plymouth-Whitemarsh. Godshall will debut against Carmen Cortese (27-7), a district champion from West Chester Henderson.

            Tyler Hoffer, at 126 pounds, was the only other of seven Tribe wrestlers to post multiple victories at districts and finished sixth.

            Hoffer (19-17) notched consecutive second-period falls in the consolation round over Pottstown's Jonah Grice and Methacton's Joey Simko to reach the semifinals. However, he was pinned by Souderton's A.J. Stayton.

            "Tyler delivered a gutty effort," Adam said of Hoffer, who competed at 126 for the first time this season. "He won some matches that really surprised me. He just ran into a loaded class."

            Sophomore Gabriel Tulone (106) and junior Chidike Eruba (189) did not participate. Both failed to make weight, according to the coach.

            Matt Milkowich, one of the Tribe's top wrestlers during the season, is not competing in the postseason. According to Adam, he lost in the wrestle-offs last month.

            Milkowich posted a 16-4 record this season while competing at 113 and 120 pounds. The senior captain finishes his career with an overall record of 76-35. He qualified for the Class AAA Regional Tournament in three consecutive seasons, finishing sixth in 2019-2020.

            According to Adam, Milkowich did not miss a day of practice after failing to secure a postseason spot in the lineup. The coach described it as a credit to his wrestler's character.

            "It shows what kind of value Matt has brought to the program," Adam said.
