Chishko picks Va. Tech
Solomon Chishko, a junior wrestler at Canon-McMillan, has given an oral commitment to Virginia Tech.
Chishko is a two-time state medal winner and has finished first and second at Powerade.
He had a 44-2 record last season and took third place in the state at 138 pounds. His only two losses of the season came to Steve Spearman of Erie McDowell, who beat Chishko in the state team tournament and in the semifinals of the individual tournament.
Chishko had a 25-15 major decision over Austin Rose to help the Big Macs win a 28-25 decision over Central Dauphin in the state team semifinals. It was one of the biggest victories in the history of Canon-McMillan wrestling.
Virginia Tech is coached by Kevin Dresser, and the Hokies compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Prior to coaching Virginia Tech, Dresser was head coach Christiansburg Academy, which has been a frequent participant in the Powerade Christmas Wrestling Tournament at Canon-McMillan.
