PIAA WRESTLING: Brown, Breese are best in the state


March 10, 2013 7:00 a.m. HERSHEY — Vath, Monico

finish eighth

There was one place winner that Saegertown knew before the championship bouts began. After cutting his bottom lip open in Friday’s third round consolation match against Benton’s Matt Welliver, Tyler Vath believed it to be in his best interest to pull out of the seventh place match at 120 pounds.

Vath finished fifth at 106 pounds in last year’s state championships

Vath was scheduled to wrestle Bryan Israel of Saucon Valley on Saturday.

Freshman Nick Monico finished eighth at 126 pounds, giving Saegertown four medalists for the tournament.

“It’s good to see all my hard work paying off,” Monico said. “I have been wrestling since I was in second grade. It’s good to finally come down here and get a payday.”

Monico lost a 3-0 decision in the seventh place match to Andrew Shutz of Wyoming Area.

As a freshman, Monico knows that it was nice to get a sniff at the state championships, but wants to come back for more.

“It was good to get on the podium and get a feel of it,” Monico said. “Now we are just going to come down here and aim for the top. There is no reason to just get on the podium when you can reach the top.”

Saegertown finished third among the teams at the tournament with 46. In first place was team duals champion Bethlehem Catholic with 94.5 points. And second was Benton with 70.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
