DiGiovanni, a senior on the wrestling team, won a Union County Championship on Saturday, the first four-time County Champion in CHS history.

It’s about the competition for DiGiovanni, “I love how hard and competitive it is. “When you step on the mat and its one-on-one, you rely on yourself and are accountable for the outcome.”

The accomplished wrestler will continue his career at UPenn in the fall, where he will major in mechanical engineering.
