Greenville and Reynolds are two of the top Class AA wrestling programs in the history of the sport in the state of Pennsylvania.
Both are perennial champions in their respective regions of District 10. But while the match Wednesday night at Thiel College gym was pretty much for bragging rights only, it could be a precursor for the annual District 10 Dual-Meet Championships at the end of the season.
The match was a thriller for the large crowd on hand at Thiel’s Beeghly Gymnasium, where next year’s football and wrestling clashes between the two area high schools will be held. Reynolds earned the win 45-13 on Wednesday.
Greenville prevailed in the football game at Thiel in October en route to an undefeated regular season.
