Seneca Valley won nine weight classes en route to the win.

In a matchup of two of the premier wrestlers in the area, Sheffield’s Ethan Finch, a University of Pittsburgh commit, earned a 7-2 decision over Corry’s Hayden Linkerhof, a 40-match winner from a season ago, at 215.

Corry blanked Northwestern, 66-0, and bested Sheffield 58-15.


GREENVILLE, Pa. – The Brookville Raiders reached a couple of milestones in a 4-1 day at the Sheetz Classic in Greenville. Their wins over Laurel (52-15), Eisenhower (42-27), North Star (42-25) and Cambridge Springs (57-9) landed them right on 700 program wins.

Also for head coach Dave Klepfer, the four wins also made him the winningest coach in Raiders history. Saturday’s third win over North Star tied him with his former coach and Hall of Famer Les Turner at 269.

Klepfer’s 270th win against Cambridge Springs put him in the No. 1 spot along with the 700th win since wrestling began at the school in 1960-61 season.
