The Panther remained undefeated until the final week of February and recorded an impressive 33-3 record. Chatterton finished third at districts and reached the state quarterfinals.

Colton Dull, Bermudian Springs,182, sr.: A two-sport all-star and a member of Bermudian's stacked lineup, Dull won a gold medal at regionals and finished third at states.

Brady Linebaugh, Bermudian Springs, 285, jr.: As Bermudian's heavyweight, Linebaugh won 30 straight bouts at one point on his way to a 36-4 season. The junior narrowly missed a regional gold medal, but his second-place finish still earned him a trip to states.

Sam McCollum, Bermudian Springs, 220, sr.: McCollum's record was unblemished this season through regionals, where he brought home a gold medal. The senior, who was also a first-team all star in football, went 43-2 and finished fourth in states. McCollum reached the 100-career wins plateau during his medal run at regionals.

Nate Newberry, Biglerville, 145, jr.: The Canners junior saw his win total increase for the third consecutive season and finished 38-4. Newberry earned career win No. 100 in his district title match. He went on to win gold at regionals and finish seventh at states.

Dalton Rohrbaugh, Spring Grove, 106, fr.: The youngest wrestler on the list, Rohrbaugh had the most successful freshman campaign in Rockets' history, finishing 32-6 and winning silver at districts. The freshman was pinned just once all season.

Briton Shelton, Bermudian Springs, 170, sr.: After finishing fourth in the state in 2014, Shelton reached states again in 2015, but didn't medal. He did, however, earn a regional gold and finished the season 38-5, with 26 wins coming by way of tech fall, major decision or pin.

Garrett Stauffer, West York, 152, sr.: Stauffer capped his four-year varsity career with his best season as a Bulldog.
