Unionville’s Mason Popham won his first match of the District 1 high school wrestling tournament and will match up against Coatesville’s Matt Brownback, Saturday, as he looks to defend his Section 1 title.
Popham, a senior, pinned Anthony Inzania of Avon Grove at the 2:48 mark at 135 pounds. Junior Scott Seidenberger lost a decision in the opening round at 119 pounds to Garnet Valley’s Fred Alderman. Josh Hammaker (112) and Perry Hopkins (171) lost their matches when pinned.
Popham added to his career-best win total for the Indians and is expected to advance to the Southeast Regional in Oxford.
