PIAA WRESTLING: Experience Lancers seek golden finish

(Continued)

MEADVILLE — Lee looking to place

The 160-pound weight class will feature two local grapplers with Titusville’s Ehrin Lee joining Bowers of GM.

Lee qualified for his first state championship after a second-place finish in the region.

“(Lee) ended up fourth in the region last year,” Titusville head coach Mo Burns said. “That did not leave a happy taste in his mouth. When he won the semifinal this year it took a lot more pressure off of him.”

There is no question that Lee (31-6) has a tough draw. In his preliminary round match he will face Academy Park’s Abner Thompson (38-3). If Lee is able to advance, he will more than likely have a date with last year’s 160-pound state champion Chance Marstellar (36-0) of Kennard Dale.

“Going into that tournament you hear people talk about good and bad draws,” Burns said. “Any draw is going to be a tough draw. His first match is a winnable match. The only match that matters is your very next match.”

Quarters start Friday

The AAA championship quarterfinals are Friday at 1:30 p.m., followed by the semifinals Saturday at 9 a.m. and     finals later that day at 7 p.m.

The top eight wrestlers from each weight class earn a medal.

Poll

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.
