WYOMISSING, PA; Photo Gallery Wrestling: Exeter vs Hamburg Through all the graduation losses, there have been two constants during Exeter's time atop the Berks Wrestling League - hard work and Dennis Karas. With more than half of his lineup filled with new starters this season, coach Jon Rugg never changed his expectations; not even with the loss of more than 20 seniors over the past two seasons. "I think the big thing this year is the kids worked just as hard," Rugg said. "This group of seniors was always behind them and never really got the opportunity to show how good they really were." Exeter flexed its muscle Friday at Wyomissing, defeating Hamburg 47-16 to capture its third straight BCIAA Team Tournament championship. The Eagles (14-5) also downed Reading High 46-15 in the semifinals. Overall, Exeter won 21-of-28 bouts in the two matches. Karas had two of those victories, a pair of first-period falls at 220 pounds to give him 100 career pins. "Coming here to be three-time county champ and then doing that on top of it, you really can't ask for anything more," Karas said.

Sports Newsmaker of the Year: Exeter wrestler beats the best to be the best Unless you're a college wrestling fan, Kyle Dake probably isn't the correct answer you'd come up with if the Final Jeopardy category was: "Cornell's greatest grappler." More than just the Big Red's best, Dake is one of the NCAA's best - of all time. He is one of just four wrestlers to win four Division I championships - and the only one to win those titles in four different weight classes. "He was one of the most special athletes I've ever coached," said Drexel head coach Matt Azevedo, who spent two years as an assistant at Cornell. "Kyle Dake's work ethic was second to none." Was. Austin DeSanto, an Exeter grad and a freshman at Drexel, has raised the seemingly unraisable bar and redefined work ethic for his college coach. "I would say I've never seen anything like it; I've never coached a kid that's even been close," said Azevedo, the amazement obvious in his tone. "(Dake) trained as hard as anybody, but what Austin does is on a different level, because of the amount of work that he does." And the relentless intensity with which he does it. DeSanto's unyielding drive is fueled by what Azevedo called his "unmatched focus" - the ability to identify a goal, view it as if wearing blinders and do whatever it takes to achieve it. The mission began March 12, 2016, when DeSanto lost to Franklin Regional's Spencer Lee in the 120-pound Class 3A state final, in what amounted to being mercy-ruled. The match ended with Lee, ranked No. 1 in the nation, winning by technical fall in the second period. Probably before Lee's hand was raised in victory, DeSanto was all-in on avenging the defeat. "I wanted to win (a rematch) every single day for a whole year," he said. One day short of that year later, DeSanto defeated Lee for the 126-pound championship. But it wasn't just that he won; it was also how he won, scoring the clinching points at the buzzer. For his dramatic victory over Lee, one of the best wrestlers in Pennsylvania history, Austin DeSanto has been named Reading Eagle Sports Newsmaker of the Year.
