Pennridge wins first District Duals title; Faith Christian wins 5th in a row
District Duals Saturday at Upper Dublin HS is always an exciting day of wrestling and the 2023 edition certainly lived up to the hype. In AAA, all 8 teams in the quarterfinals had a legitimate shot to finish in the top 4 to advance to state duals. For the first time in the 25 year history of the District 1 Duals, the top seeded team did not advance to the finals, as #8 Owen J. Roberts stunned #1 Council Rock South in the quarterfinals 36-30. Despite that, Council Rock South ended up taking third and Owen J. Roberts didn't place. Quakertown, the #6 seed, finished in fourth place. The story of the AAA tourney was eventual champion Pennridge. They came in as the #3 seed and breezed to the finals and defeated #4 Spring-Ford in the finals by a score of 36-22. It was the first District Duals championship for the Pennridge Rams.
On the AA side, only two teams entered the field and #1 Faith Christian Academy flexed their muscle in beating #2 Bristol 72-0. The Lions from Faith Christian are one of the top teams in PA this season, regardless of classification, and they will look to place high at the state tournament in Hershey.
Congratulations to Pennridge and Faith Christian Academy on their District 1 championships! Good luck to all the teams competing in the state duals!

Returning this season: Match Videos
For the 2015-16 season, 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. We're back again!
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.
2010-2019 District 1 All Decade Team
After the 2018-19 season concluded, we unveiled our picks for the District 1 Wrestling All Decade Team. Anyone in the graduating classes of 2010 to 2019 was eligible. A panel of over 40 coaches, referees, and wrestling media voted to pick the best of the best. We selected a First Team, Second Team, Third Team plus some honorable mentions. The list concluded with our selection of the Wrestler of the Decade as well! Be sure to check back for this special list.
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.
Top 25 District 1 wrestlers over the past 25 years
After the 2014 state tournament concluded, a panel of ten District 1 wrestling experts were asked to rank their top 25 D1 wrestlers over the past 25 years. Anyone who graduated from 1990 up to this year's senior class would be eligible for the list. We tallied all the votes to come up with our Top 25 list. Check out the link below for the list of contributors, wrestlers who received votes but not enough to crack the top 25, and the actual top 25 list.
