Season Preview, Part 1

Class AA

(Weights, records from last season)


2009 record: 1-10

Key losses: Nathan Carl (189, 22-6), Aaron Margaria (140, 17-16); Tom Cowden (145, 7-18); Jesse Noble (171, 7-9).

Key returnees: Jared Magon (152, 28-14); Zach Simonelli (160, 13-14)

Outlook: Low numbers doom the team portion of the season. Magon a superb athlete.


2009 record: 6-5

Key losses: None

Key returnees: Vince Vahaly (112, 30-9); Francis Mizia (130, 35-10); Gus Mizia (152, 37-9); Dylan Demain (160, 35-8).

Outlook: The core is there. What will determine the season's success is the development of the other six wrestlers who were either a freshman or sophomore last season.


2009 record: 3-15

Key losses: Brandon Pape (145, 14-19); Jordan Kinder (152, 19-17)

Key returns: Zach Swarrow (103, 35-10); Jeff Tarley (Hvy, 39-2)

Outlook: Numbers still a problem. Swarrow and Tarley are studs.


2009 record
: 17-4

Key losses: Erich Openbrier (125, 26-14); Mike Fleming (135, 32-11); Zach Schilinski (145, 36-11); Jesse Crawford (171, 18-13); Nate Stiffler (Hvy, 12-9)

Key returns: Tyler Rommes (112, 34-8); Dom Pulcini (130, 25-16); Dylan Fleming (140, 34-9); Darren Reed (189, 23-14); Chris Bendick (215, 26-18)

Outlook: Blue Devils will win the Section 1A. Hard to believe none made it to states out of this group last year.


2009 record: 5-4

Key losses: Greg Black (125, 22-14); Ray Campbell (215, 29-10); Jake Linn (Hvy, 29-12)

Key returns: Aaron Toth (103, 30-6); Josh Kwasny (119, 19-4); Cody Wiercioch (152, 38-1); Tommy Thorpe (171, 25-15)

Outlook: Where the Cougars are good, they are really good. Where they are bad, they are really bad. Biding time until Wircioch makes another run in postseason.


2009 record: 15-2

Key losses: Grant McCarty (112, 12-4); Vic LiPari (119, 39-7); Thomas Hairston (189, 21-14)

Key returns: Tanner Sutton (125, 35-8); Andrew Vernau (130, 23-8); Tom Orenbaun (135, 17-11); Michael Innes (140, 31-4); Garrett Vulcano (145, 30-16); Jeremy Anesetti (171, 25-15); Nate Grandelis (Hvy, 19-12)

Outlook: This team is loaded. C-H is a step below only Burrell in the WPIAL in Class AA. Only concern is the tendency for injury this program has had over the past few seasons.

Doubt it, they will find some way to screw up the season like last year with the stealing spree they went on.

Wishful thinking at JM..DeMaske wont make it through the season. The Miller boy at 119 is a very solid wrestler but none of the returners are anything to write home about. This team may win mon match in the team tourney but will not qualify anyone for Hershey.

I heard Demaske is a handful, just like his older brother. John is however far more talented, if you can win 4 pjw state titles your tough.. I hope he can learn from his brothers mistakes and straighten up in school and the community.

why isnt Bentworth one of the top 5 teams. Seems like they are the favorite to win their section.
