TOMS RIVER, NJ - Watchung Hills Wrestling fell to Manalapan in the semifinal round of the  NJSIAA Group 5 Championships on Sunday, 39-36.

“Not the outcome we wanted today in the state semi finals, but I thought overall we wrestled a great dual meet season,” said WHRHS head coach Jim Huff. “To be County, conference, and sectional champs this year with only one senior in a lineup says a lot about our character as a team. We are excited for this week coming up where we have the district tournament. We are looking to win districts as a team again and get as many kids to the regional tournament as possible. Please come out and support our team as we host districts on Saturday starting at 9 AM. Go Warriors!”
