Four in a row for Big Macs

At times, it seemed more like a dogfight than a wrestling match.

Canon-McMillan and Franklin Regional loaded up their best shots and each one packed a wallop and did its damage.

Canon-McMillan got the final blow delivered when Dalton Macri pinned Don Turner in one minute at 120 pounds to send the Big Macs into WPIAL history.

Canon-McMillan (15-0) became the first Class AAA team to win four straight WPIAL Team Tournament championships by defeating Franklin Regional, 31-26, Saturday night at Chartiers Valley High School.

Dalton Macri's pin in the final bout sealed the win for C-M.

North Allegheny is the only other Class AAA team to win three in a row, from 1986-88. Burrell extended its Class AA record with a seventh straight title by beating South Fayette, 35-30, earlier in the day.

The top three teams in each classification advanced to the PIAA Team Tournament, which gets under way Monday with first-round matches. Canon-McMillan won’t wrestle again until Thursday afternoon in the Giant Center, the prize for being the District 7 champion. Canon-McMillan is the defending state team champion, winning the individual team tournament title last March and capturing the tournament title last February.
