Who would win this match?
By having a WPIAL-record eight medalists and winning two state titles, Canon-McMillan had one of the most dominating performances by any team competing in the state tournaments.
The Big Macs were unique in having wrestlers finish first through eighth in the PIAA Class AAA Championships in Hershey. Cody Wiercioch led the way, winning his second state title when he decisioned Shane Springer of Norristown in the 170-pound finals.
That success opened debate about whether Canon-McMillan is the best team ever to emerge from the WPIAL.Five other WPIAL teams shared the record of six PIAA placewinners: Canon-McMillan and Pittsburgh Central Catholic last year, Shady Side Academy in 2008, Hempfield in 2007 and North Allegheny in 1990.
The only team that matches the Big Macs in overall talent is North Allegheny. That team had four champions in Ty Moore (119), Jamie Kyriazis (135), Ray Brinzer (160) and Kenny Bauer (171). Jeff Alexander was second at 103, and Mike Johns was sixth at 130.
Who do you think would win a dual meet between these two teams?
