OWA Wrestlers Battle Hard at MAWA Eastern Nationals
The 2018 - 2019 post-season continued, as OWA was well represented at the MAWA Eastern Nationals Tournament in Salisbury, MD on Saturday May 4th and 5th.
In all, we had 8 wrestlers participate in one of the toughest youth tournaments in the Mid-Atlantic region. Place winners / All-Americans for the event were Jayden Cosenzo (7th), Jace McKinney (8th) and Landon Meredith (6th).
Also competing hard at the event were Jon Smith, Ben Smith, James Delvesco, Finn Hanna, and Shane Montgomery.
All of the coaches and parents in attendance were very proud of our wrestlers effort throughout the tournament. Special Thanks to coaches Jeremy McKinney and Will Smith for supporting the team and their families at the event.
Max Morrison Places 2nd at PJW States
OWA would like to congratulate Max Morrison for placing 2nd at the 2019 Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling Youth Championships. The tournament took place on March 16th - 18th at the Peterson Event Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Max completed the state's most prestigious youth tournament with an impressive record of 4-1 and a momentous silver medal in the 8 & Under 75-pound division, losing in the finals by a very slim 7-5 margin.
His efforts made OWA, his parents, coaches, and the Oxford wrestling community very proud. Also competing hard at the event and representing PJW Area XI were Jaxon McKinney, Jace McKinney, Keigan Barnes, and James Delvesco.
Special Thanks to Coaches Jeremy McKinney and Lloyd Vance and their families for helping everyone thoroughly enjoy this memorable experience
