NEWARK, Del: The King of the Mountain Tournament came and went. Same with the Beast of the East.

Two weeks, two of the most prestigious events on the high school wrestling calendar. Boyertown was in both fields, but there was no Jordan Wood, at least not listed in the bracket or competing on the mat.

Wood suffered an upper body injury in August while training with the World Team at the Olympic Training Center. It’s kept him on the shelf ever since, and rumors have his status this season and moving forward in question.

According to Bears head coach Pete Ventresca, there is a chance that Wood will be back this season.

“We’re optimistic,” Ventresca said during Sunday’s place matches at the Beast of the East, which was held at the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center.

“Whether he will be back or not is yet to be determined. If he is 100 percent, he will be back, but we don’t know if that will happen.”

In the meantime, the Bears will have to find a way to deal with the loss of the No. 1-ranked 220-pound wrestler in the country.
