Erie Times-News Breakout Wrestler of the Week: Andrew Phelps, North East

Andrew Phelps

North East sophomore Andrew Phelps came up big when his team needed it the most. Trailing Union City 36-31 going into Phelps’ match at 195 pounds, the final bout of the match, the Grapepickers needed a pin to pull out the win. Phelps earned a fall in 3 minutes, 24 seconds to give North East a huge 37-36 win.

He followed that up by going 4-1 in the Lakeview Duals on Saturday, including two pins. North East has always produced solid wrestlers, and Phelps looks to have a bright future for the ‘Pickers.
