H.S. WRESTLING: Locals grab six golds at Class AA regionals


SHARON — Lukowich makes history

It wasn’t the outcome he wanted, but nonetheless Conneaut’s Kyle Lukowich became the first wrestler in program history to advance to the PIAA championships with a second place finish at 126 pounds.

“It feels pretty good,” Lukowich said. “You train all year for this and just prepare for next week and let it all come out.”

Lukowich was matched up against last week’s District 10 champion Jarray Norris. After a scoreless first period, Lukowich was able to take a 1-0 advantage on an escape point. The lead would be short-lived when Norris rattled off six unanswered points for the 6-1 decision.

Taylor Ellis was the other Eagle in competition on Saturday, advancing to the consolation semifinals. Ellis defeated Zac McKnight of Ridgeway in the consolation quarterfinal by a pin at 4:43. Ellis’ outcome was reversed in the next round as he was the one getting pinned. Ty Haines of Redbank Valley pinned Ellis in 50 seconds.

Muskies, Tigers eliminated

With three combined wrestlers competing in Saturday’s region matches, the Jamestown Muskies and Maplewood Tigers were holding on by a thread.

For Jamestown, Faris Messai and Seth Thurber were the Muskies final hope.

Thurber was eliminated in his first match of the day, getting pinned at 1:35 over Seneca’s Chris Hibbler in the consolation quarterfinals at 138 pounds.

Messai advanced to the consolation semifinals with a pin over Port Allegany’s Casey Vollmer at 4:43. Messai was then eliminated by eventual consolation finals winner at 106 pounds Seth Hogue of Reynolds.

Maplewood entered the region with three wrestlers but found themselves down to only Zak Dennis entering Saturday.

Dennis was one of many local grapplers to reach the consolation semifinals but fell short. Dennis lost a 10-6 decision to Dalton Zimmerman of Brookville — who advanced to Hershey next week via a 3-0 decision over Luke Walter of Grove City in the consolation final.
