Bermudian Springs High's upperweights have taken a dramatic shift in the last week.

Senior Tyler Fitzkee and sophomore Tristan Sponseller, who had wrestled at 170 and 182 pounds, respectively, each dropped a weight class for the District 3 Class AA Section I tournament Saturday at Bermudian Springs High School. That left Jake Slonaker, previously at 160, needing to gain some weight to stay in the lineup.

"We told him to drink a lot of milk and eat a lot of starchy foods," Eagle wrestling coach Dave McCollum said. "He gained 10 pounds back in one week. Last year, he had a great season eating. He might be one of those kids that needs to eat to wrestle. I'm hoping he gets a little bit more weight going into district next week."

The moves were part of yet another Bermudian Springs section title, as the Eagles scored 218.5 points. Biglerville came in second with 173 points, and Hanover was third with 110.

The Eagles and Canners advanced 24 wrestlers -- 13 from the former and 11 on the latter -- to this week's district round. The Nighthawks had seven move on.

"Our goal was to come in and be competitive again," McCollum said. "We knew we had to wrestle hard because Biglerville had a nice squad. Hanover brought some nice kids. Trinity brought some nice kids. Eastern York brought some tough kids. It's a pretty tough section. We couldn't expect it to happen. It doesn't work that way."

Bermudian Springs' Brad Farley continued his perfect season when he pinned Fairfield's Cameron Scalio in 1 minute, 17 seconds in the championship of the 120-pound weight class.

Hanover's Ian Brown and Derek Wolford also remained undefeated after winning the 126- and 195-pound championships, respectively. Brown's win -- a 3-0 decision over Fairfield's Trevor Hernandez -- was one of the closer bouts.

"Ian wrestled a well-controlled match, took some real nice shots," Hanover coach Dave Cataldo said.

"Trevor Hernandez is a real tough kid. (One hundred twenty-six pounds) could be a tough weight in the district. There's about six or seven good '26-pounders in the district."

He was happy with advancing seven wrestlers to the next round. The Nighthawks brought 11 to the tournament.

"Those guys wrestled really well," Cataldo said. "Even with the consolation round, I think we went 6-for-7 (in wins). They picked it up when they had to.

"I think we're going to come out in some good places. It's going to show up next week."

Fairfield's Clay Kocsis continued his perfect season with a 2-0 win over Biglerville's Tyler Lieberum in the championship round.

The Canners who advanced were Dan May, who was pinned in eight seconds by Trinity's Ryan Diehl in the 113-pound championship; Brady Mentzer; Colton McKinney; Hernandez; Laike Gardner; Jasper Hankey; Dustin Grubbs; Lieberum; Josh Asper; Joe Hurda; and Trevor Stover.

Dalton Becker, Ted Marines, Farley, Briton Shelton, Austin Jackson, Colton Dull, Noah Blasone, Fitzkee, Sponseller, Slonaker, Linebaugh, Jose Arriola and Jon Jimenez each moved on for the Eagles.

"It feels good to stand on top of the podium," Fitzkee said. "Mouse (McCollum) always says it's going to be us and Biglerville most of the time. We edged them again, and it felt great."
