Post-Season Changes Coming to D1 AAA in 2019
While the 2018 wrestling post-season in District 1 is still months away, the 2019 edition is going to look quite different. District 1 recently approved a recommendation from the District 1 Wrestling Steering Committee to change the AAA post-season from three weekends to two. The move will create four AAA sections where each qualify four per weight to form a 16-man South East AAA Regional bracket.

2016-17 season recap; three from D1 win state gold
The 2016-17 season is in the books. After 3+ months of excellent wrestling in and around District 1 this season, three wrestlers came home from Hershey with gold medals. Seniors Zack Trampe of Council Rock South (132) and Brian Kennerly of Upper Darby (220) joined junior Doug Zapf of Downingtown West (106) with state gold medals this past season. Overall 19 wrestlers from District 1 (all in AAA) earned state hardware, with four returning next year. Congrats to all the medalists and good luck to all those who will graduate in 2017!
Council Rock South and Bishop McDevitt win Duals titles
For the third year in a row, the District 1 AAA Duals championship final featured the same teams - Boyertown and Council Rock South. After falling the last two years to the Bears, the Golden Hawks of Council Rock South came out on top this time by a score of 38-24. The win gives CRS their third District Duals title and first since 2011. Boyertown was seeking their 4th straight title. Owen J. Roberts placed third with a 39-24 win over Downingtown West. The top 4 teams all advance to the state bracket with Owen J. Roberts and Downingtown West first competing in a pigtail match.
In AA, Bishop McDevitt out of District 12 won the D1/12 tournament with a 43-42 victory over Faith Christian. That final ended 42-42 and came down to Criteria H (most first points scored) to give the Lancers the championship and a spot in the state duals bracket.

Returning this season: Match Videos
Last season, PA-Wrestling.com started a new service to record video of regular season dual meets within District 1. We hope this service will help enhance the fan experience as well as create additional exposure for District 1 wrestling around the state and beyond. It's back for 2016-17!
We plan to present a "Match of the Week" each week of the regular season. Some weeks might have a second match as well. All matches will be recorded and posted to our YouTube channel the day after the match. Subscribe to our channel and enable notifications so you are notified as soon as we post any videos. When available, we hope to live stream some matches as well. Any matches that are live streamed will also be archived for later viewing.
District 1 Post-Season brackets back to 1974
During the summer of 2015 (after quite a lot of work), we have finally published a near-complete history of all District 1 post-season tournament results/brackets going back to 1974. There are a few tournaments that don't have complete results but the overwhelming majority of the section, district, and regional tournaments are complete. This project simply couldn't have been done without the work of Jack Holt, D1's wrestling historian! If you wrestled for a D1 team between 1974 and today...you HAVE to check it out.
Follow us on Twitter
PA-Wrestling.com is finally on Twitter... Follow @PA_wrestling as we'll be posting final scores from around District 1 as well as links to the boxscores as soon as they are available on the site. Most posts will have the #PAD1wrestle hashtag as well.
