MHS Wrestlers Advance to District Championships
Darius O’Neal-Taylor and Darius Briggs, two Milton Hershey School seniors, have advanced to the Mid-Penn District Wrestling Championship, which begins on Friday, Feb. 22.
During the recent sectional wrestling tournament, Briggs started as the fifth seed and placed second overall, advancing to the district round of the competition. O’Neal-Taylor went into the sectional tournament as a seventh seed and finished fourth place overall before moving on to the district level.
“Darius Briggs had a couple dominating wins, including a pin in the quarterfinals and a big win over the number one seed in the semifinals,” said Jason Foor, MHS wrestling coach. “Darius O’Neal-Taylor wrestled with MHS pride and heart during every single match, and went on to win some tough matches.”
