Allegheny Country Wrestling Championships
STU Member Mike Wilkins has been kind enough to put together some information about the Allegheny Wrestling wrestling scene this week. We will continue to cover wrestling more and more each week.
Last weekend also played host to the Allegheny County Wrestling Championships held at Fox Chapel High School. 40 teams from all over the county gathered in the Fox Chapel gymnasium for 2 days of exciting wrestling.
When the dust settled Hampton School District was left standing a top the 40 team field. Pittsburgh Central Catholic, North Allegheny, Upper St. Clair, and Chartiers Valley rounded out the top 5 in that order.
Stellar individual performances were turned in by Vincenzo Joseph (Pittsburgh Central Catholic, 106lbs), Godwin Nyama (Brasher, 120lbs), and Noah Shulman (Hampton, 285lbs) pinning all opponents on way to County Gold.
*Interesting Fact: Sean Clair (Renzo Gracie Pittsburgh) who will be fighting Saturday Jan. 21st in the NAAFS, was the very first 4x Champion in Allegheny County Tournament History.
