H.S. WRESTLING: Class AA takes to mat with spot at states in sight

March 1, 2013 7:00 a.m. MEADVILLE — Last week the spotlight belonged to Saegertown, who along with Reynolds, crowned three District 10 Class AA champions at Sharon High School. The Panthers are eager to find out if they can keep the spark going today when they begin their quest at the PIAA Northwest Regional tournament at Sharon.

“They are all excited,” Saegertown head coach Jim Mulligan said. “This team has been through a lot. They are battle-tested.”

In all, the Panthers qualified seven grapplers for the regional with the ultimate goal of continuing their journey into next week at states in Hershey.

With only the top three place-winners in each weight class advancing to states, the preliminary round becomes more crucial than ever.

With the above average performance on the mat last week, five of the seven Panther wrestlers have received byes into the quarterfinal round.

After winning Districts in their respective weight classes, Devin Brown (106), Tyler Vath (120) and Dylan Reynolds (182) received byes into the quarterfinals with an opponent to be determined. Matt Humes, who finished second at Districts last week, will square off against District 9’s Darren Brown of Kane in the quarters. Nick Monico, who finished third last week at 126 pounds, will be up against Mitch Blose of Redbank Valley in the quarters.

“We have wrestled Redbank Valley and Brookville before,” Mulligan said. “We know what they have there. We just have to keep continuing to do what has been working for us.”

The preliminary round wrestlers for Saegertown are Bingbong Elizon and Andrew Boylan. Elizon will see a familiar face in his first match in Cochranton’s Nate Kline at 113 pounds. Kline defeated Elizon last week in the consolation semifinals by a 7-2 decision.

“Bingbong needs to believe in what he can do,” Mulligan said. “He deserves to win. He put the time and work in.”

Also seeking revenge for Saegertown is Andrew Boylan at 160 pounds. Boylan will begin is tournament against Reynolds’ Michael Millero. Millero defeated Boylan 9-5 in the quarterfinals last week.

District 9 is the only other district competing in the regional.

  • MLB replay Selig calls replay start ‘remarkable’

    Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks.
    While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay center in New York.
