Class AA Championship notes

The first night of the WPIAL Class AA Wrestling Championships went off without many surprises. But there were these: Ryan Zalar of Jefferson-Morgan knocked off fourth-seeded Nick Zanetta of Keystone Oaks 9-2 at 119; Josh Kwasny of Charleroi won by a 16-1 technical fall over third-seeded Connor Payne of South Side Beaver at 135; and West Greeneā€™s Wade Durbin pinned fourth-seed Aiden Talerico of Beaver in 24 seconds at 152 pounds.

Another bout between Burrell's Travis McKillop and Charleroi defending state champion Cody Wiercioch is just a win away for each wrestler. Both easily made it into the semifinals with dominating performances. Wiercioch meets Garrett Vulcano of Chartiers-Houston and McKillop battled Bentworth's Dylan Demain Saturday morning.

The tournament had a female wrestler. Riverview freshman Megan Moroney was pinned by Nicholas Ellefson of Blackhawk in 44 seconds at 103 pounds in the first round. Moroney dropped to the wrestlebacks, where she decisioned Terry Booth of Steel Valley, 10-6.
