Two wins at Classic

The Pennsylvania and WPIAL teams pulled off a rare doubleplay in winning both dual meets in the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic Sunday at Pitt.
In the feature dual meet, Pennsylvania defeated the United States for only the second time in 11 years, 27-18.
Travis Shaffer of Derry, who was originally selected for the WPIAL team but moved into Neff’s spot after the injury, was named Outstanding Wrestler for Pennsylvania with a 7-2 decision over Hunter Stieber of Monroeville, Ohio, at 135 pounds. Stieber was 203-2 and won four state titles.
Mike Ottinger of Parkland might have had the most impressive win with a 6-4 decision over Destin McCauley of Apple Valley, Minn. McCauley had a 286-6 record and five state titles.
Logan Storley, a six-time state champion from Webster, S.D., won a 3-1 decision over John Staudenmayer of Plymouth Whitemarsh at 171.
Nico Megaludis of Franklin Regional capped the match with a 9-3 decision over Conor Youtsey of Mason, Mich., at 125. The weights were predrawn.
The WPIAL made Classic history with the first shutout, a 42-0 win over Michigan.
Micahel Innes of Chartiers-Houston, added just Friday as a replacement, was one of six local winners. Innes decisioned Brian Gibbs of Bedford, 5-3, at 140 pounds.
Waynesburg’s Derrick Nelson nipped Brandon Fifield of Leslie, 3-2, at 119; Canon-McMillan’s Nick Catalano edged Matt Frisch of Oxford, 2-1, at 145; South Fayette’s Nick Carr stopped Dan Fleet or Lowell, 6-1 at 152; Trinity’s Kyle McWreath beat Anthony Abro, 2-1, at 189; and Beth-Center’s Jeff Tarley dropped Cody Wolever of Hesperia, 6-1, at heavyweight.
