Sponseller second at national mat meet

Bermudian Springs wrestler Tristan Sponseller, who beat Corry’s Ryan Morris in the 195-pound final at the PIAA Class AA wrestling tournament on March 8, was a finalist in that same division for the National High School Wrestling Championships.

The 25th annual meet, which attracts some of the nation’s best talent, was held over the weekend at Virginia Beach, Va.

Marcus Harrington, a two-time Iowa champion, decisioned Sponseller 7-5 in their final. Harrington plans to wrestle for Iowa State, while Sponseller is a Lock Haven recruit.
