Tri-County tournament

Avella's Jake Temple had the fastest pin of the first day of the Tri-CADA Wrestling Tournament, pinning Will Van Norman of West Greene in seven seconds. It was the quickest pin of his varsity career. His fastest career pin came in five seconds in the youth program at Avella.
Temple was eager for a match against Canon-McMillan’s Alex Campbell in the 220-pound weight class, but Campbell was one of six Big Macs to scratch because of injuries, flu or both.
Campbell originally was the top seed and Temple the second. When Campbell pulled out, Temple moved to No. 1 and Rich Heinzelman of Ringgold settled into the No. 2 seed in the redrawn weight class.
Other Canon-McMillan wrestlers not competing were defending state champion Cody Wiercioch, who injured his thumb in Wednesday’s dual meet against Fort Lebeouf; Connor Schram, who is was nursing a sore shoulder; heavyweight Anthony Broglia, who was banged up from the Fort Lebeouf match; and William Pihiou, who was suffering with the flu and nursing injuries. Campbell was one of three 220-pounders who were scratched.
Another notable absence was John Demakse of Jefferson-Morgan, who was injured.
Chartiers-Houston's Tanner Sutton is hoping to become the first four-time champion in the tournament's history, which extends back to 2009.
Peters Township holds the team lead after the first day with 78.5 points. Chartiers-Houston is second with 72, followed by Waynesburg at 68. McGuffey and Trinity are tied for fourth with 63 points.
