McGuffey headed to Double-A

McGuffey High School's wrestling team, which has been competing up in classification, will return to a Double-A schedule next season. The Highlanders, competing in Section 4-A in Class AAA, will begin the new schedule for the 2014-15 season.
McGuffey will try to keep its rivalry matches with Waynesburg, Trinity and Canon-McMillan. The enrollment numbers for McGuffey have been steadily declining over the years and athletic director Ed Dalton said it's the best move for the program.
"We made the decision a few weeks ago," Dalton said. We talked it over with the coaches. We talked it over with the board. We talked it over with (head coach Mark Caffrey). Our enrollment from our heyday has gone from 270 to 120."Dalton said the school only had two home section dual meets this season, a the trend in the WPIA now.
"We understand the pitfalls," he said. But we have to be proactive. We'll still wrestle good teams and create a competitive schedule."
