GALLAGHER

Gettysburg’s Trevor Gallagher turns Hempfield’s Caleb Mussmon during their 285-pound bout in the District 3 Class 3A Team Championship semifinals on Thursday. Gallagher won by decision, helping the Warriors down the Black Knights and move into today’s championship match against Central Dauphin, at Cumberland Valley High School.

It’s been said that styles make the best prizefights. The same goes for wrestling matches, especially those pitting powerhouse teams with high stakes on the line.

A contrast of styles could be on display today at Cumberland Valley when unbeaten Gettysburg squares off against Central Dauphin in the District 3 Class 3A Team Championship title match. The Rams are the defending champs thanks to a 28-21 win over the Warriors in the 2021 finals. Traditionally, CD relies on a methodical approach in its matches, especially in bouts where its wrestlers are underdogs. The Rams pounce where possible, but have become masters of saving those precious bonus points that are often the difference between victory and defeat.
