The national praise continues to roll in for York County wrestlers Chance Marstellar and Brooks Black.
This time, the honors come from The Open Mat, a website dedicated to covering amateur wrestling and MMA (mixed-martial arts) news. The site recently released its rankings of the top high school wrestlers in the country.
Marstellar, who is about to enter his freshman season at Kennard-Dale, was rated the fifth best 145-pounder in the country. Yes, as a freshman.
Black did him one better. The Dover native, who wrestles at the prestigious Blair Academy in New Jersey, was ranked the No. 1 high school heavyweight. He's about to start his sophomore season.
A third York-area wrestler was also included in The Open Mat's rankings. Dallastown's rising senior Phil Sprenkle was slotted 13th in the country among 189 pounders.
