CM sends five to semifinals

Canon-McMillan produced the wrestling equivalent of Michigan basketball’s Fab Five.
Michigan’s Fab Five, all freshmen, brought the Wolverines to the NCAA championship games. Interestingly, that group never won a championship.
The Big Macs put on a dazzling display in the quarterfinals of the PIAA Class AAA Wrestling Championships Friday afternoon, sending five wrestlers into today’s (8 a.m.) semifinals and taking a major step to securing the team tournament title.
Win followed win in one of the most impressive run by any Big Macs team since four made it to the semifinals in 1992.
Colton Shorts, a 103-pound junior, Connor Schram, a 112-pound sophomore and defending state champion; Solomon Chishko, a 130-pound freshman, Nick Catalano, a 145-pound senior, and Cody Klempay, a junior heavyweight, have the chance to produced the greatest wrestling season in one of the most prestigious programs in the sport.
There has never been more than four state champions from any team participating in this tournament, which has been held ever year since 1938. Among the teams that have had four are North Allegheny in 1990, Lock Haven in 1961, Waynesburg in 1943 and Clearfield in 1941.
