H.S. Wrestling: Saegertown takes 11th at Powerade

CANONSBURG — Out of 46 competing teams, Saegertown finished in 11th place at the Powerade Wrestling Tournament, hosted by Canon-McMillan High School on Friday and Saturday.

The Panthers finished with 91.5 points with four place-winners. Dylan Reynolds had the highest finish for the Panthers, claiming fourth place at 182 pounds. He dropped the third place match to McDowell’s Tyree Spearman by a narrow 3-2 margin.  

Other place-winners for Saegertown included Matt Humes, who was sixth at 145; Tyler Vath, who was eighth at 132; and Nick Monico, who was eighth at 138. Humes picked up his 100th career win during the tournament.

Franklin Regional won the tournament with 236.5 points, beating second-place Greater Latrobe with 207 points.

Franklin Regional had five champions, including former Saegertown wrestlers Devin Brown (106) and Spencer Lee (113). Brown was recently declared eligible by the PIAA, which overturned a ruling by District 7 that would have barred Brown from wrestling for a year due to transfering for athletic reasons.

Other champs for Franklin Regional included Tyler Smith at 132, Michael Kemerer at 138 and Josh Shields at 152.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
