Spring-Ford wins first Duals title; Faith Christian makes it a three-peat
This year's AAA District Duals was perhaps the most wide-open field in recent years with any number of teams poised to take the crown. When it was all said and done, the Spring-Ford Rams dominated the tournament and captured their first ever District 1 AAA Duals championship. The Rams were seeded third behind top seed Quakertown and second seed Council Rock South, which won the last two titles. The Rams took out the two-time defending champs in the semis and then defeated the Panthers 39-22 in the final.
In the consolation bracket, Council Rock South and Garnet Valley claimed the third and fourth state qualifier spots respectively for District 1. Garnet Valley was the surprise of the tournament as they were seeded 13th to start and opened the tourney with an upset over fourth seeded Council Rock North. They then upset fifth seeded Owen J. Roberts in the quarters before falling to Quakertown in the semis. But then a win over sixth seeded West Chester Henderson clinched their spot in the state duals.
In the AA tournament, just two teams entered the first chance to represent Districts 1 or 12 in the state duals. Conwell-Egan from District 12 was the #1 seed while District 1's Faith Christian Academy was the #2 seed. Faith Christian dominated the final, winning their third title in a row, by a score of 54-21.
Congrats to Spring-Ford and Faith Christian on their championships!
Returning this season: Match Videos
Four years ago, PA-Wrestling.com started a service to record video of regular season dual meets within District 1. We hoped this service would help enhance the fan experience as well as create additional exposure for District 1 wrestling around the state and beyond. It's back for season #5!
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.
