No Pennsylvania wrestler had as good a weekend as New Ringgold’s Jake Hendricks. The Wyoming Seminary grad, now at the University of Pennsylvania and competing for the Penn RTC, came home with hardware in all three events he entered.
Hendricks kicked off his weekend in a big way, earning a slot on the junior world team with a championship at 82Kg in UWW juniors, before finishing as the runner-up in U23 Greco. Hendricks ended the week with another All-American finish, 8th place at 86kg in UWW junior freestyle.

Chris Kim (61 kg, Cliff Keen WC) Gerit Nijenhuis (79kg, Boilermaker RTC), and Austin Cooley (Pitt RTC) were seventh place finishers.

PA Red takes home middle school girls national duals title
WISCONSIN DELLS—Pennsylvania took three girls teams—two middle school and a high school-- to Wisconsin Dells over the weekend to compete in the USA Wrestling Folkstyle Tour of America Nationals Duals.
Taking home a championship title was one of our middle school girls’ teams, PA Red, with PA White coming in third. The high school girls also finished third.
In the opening round of the round robin, PA Red trounced Wisconsin’s Lady Outlaws 48-9. Juliette Trout (72 pounds), Lillian Rumsey (79), Julia Horger (92), Lane Fordyce (105), and Emily Murphy (120) all won by fall in the victory.
Up next for Red came against PA White, who dropped its first round match-up to Badger Girls Elite (WI) by a score of 39-7, with only Sierra Chiesa (92) and Savannah Witt (120) coming away with victories for White. Red won the battle for PA supremacy 30-17.
Trout and Rumsey picked up their second falls of the day in the dual, while Aubre Krazer (86), Jordyn Fouse (112) and Jael Miller also got the slap of the mat.
Red secured a first-place finish, edging Badger Girls Elite 31-24 in the final round. Trailing 24-19 going into the final two bouts of the dual, the Red lightweights got the job done, with back-to-back pins.
“I knew the kind of hammers we had coming up,” said coach Lewis Rumsey. “I Knew they could get it done. All through the line-up, we had girls that you could count on. I’m really proud of how hard they wrestled all day.”
At 72, Trout got a quick takedown and hooked up an arm bar to deck Alexa Thomas in just 27-seconds.
“I have to admit I was really nervous going in,” said Trout. “This whole team was counting on me and I knew I just had to go out and get it. I’m really proud of the way I wrestled all day—and proud of my teammates.”
Rumsey was next, and slammed the door shut with a second period fall over Dilynn Albrecht.
“It felt so good when I got the pin,” said Rumsey. “We worked hard all day, and now we were the national duals champions. It just feels great.”
White rebounded with a final round win over Lady Outlaws, 39-18. Chiesa won by fall in the victory, while Sienna Landrum (105) wrestled to a win by decision.
The high school girls ran into a hammer right off the bat, in the USA Women National Travel Team. Team USA, who ran away with the championship title, topped the PA girls 48-6. Charlotte Guilfoil, who pinned Paige Peterson at 140, was one of only three girls with a win over Team USA all day.
Team PA bounced right back, turning back Askren Wrestling Academy 40-14. After Lexi Schechterly took a forfeit at 106 for PA, Askren answered back with three straight wins to go up 14-6 after four weights. They wouldn’t win another bout the rest of the way as Isabella Dias (132), Guilfoil, and Andrea Wilmouth (160) got pins; Colleen Kline (100) picked up a 10-0 major decision, while Mia Baumbarger (150) and Kaitlyn Pegeralla (170) collected forfeits.
In round three, Ana Mllovich (114), Morgan Edwards (120) and Schechterly each won by fall in a 60-0 win over Ground Up USA, with all the other points coming by way of forfeit.
Kato FSGR was the fourth round opponent, and the two were locked up in a doozy, with Kato edging PA by a score of 25-21.
Earning wins in the tough loss were Wilmoth, Pegarella, Kline, Gilfoil, and Marissa Rumsey (126)
When Team USA knocked off Kato FSGR in round five, PA earned a third-place finish.
