Remarkable seasons

Solomon Chishko, right, and his brother Job accomplished a remarkable wrestling feat when each won state titles in the same season. Solomon Chishko came back from a fractured elbow to win 11 straight bouts, the final one an 8-0 shutout of Chris Vassar of Cedar Cliff in the 145-pound finals of the PIAA Class AAA Championships in Hershey.

Job Chishko, a seventh-grader at Canonsburg Middle School, won the 77-pound championship in the 13 and 14 age division. Job Chishko defeated Luke Resnick of Owen J. Roberts, 6-2 in the finals. A third seed, Chishko reached the finals with a pin in 1:13 of Mike Madara of Nazareth.

The Chishko's other brother, Boaz, came within a win of the medal round in the 50-pound weight class in the 8-under division.

Two other local wrestlers won Junior Olympic titles: Bill Bowlen, a freshman at Carmichaels who wrestles on varsity for Jefferson-Morgan in a co-op program; and Gavin Teasdale of Jefferson-Morgan.

Bowlen won the 157-pound title in the 13-14 age division with a 1-0 decision over Gage Gladysz of Greenville. Bowlen reached the finals with a 2-1 decision over Chase Duliakis of Hempfield.
Teasdale won the 82-pound title in the 13-14 age division when he routed Keelan Kunselman of Brookville, 12-0. Teasdale made it to the finals with a 7-2 win over Matt Parker of Pennridge.

JO state results

Dake: 4 titles in 4 weight classes

Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa – Cornell senior Kyle Dake chose the toughest possible path to history.
By betting on himself, Dake is in a class all his own.
Dake became the first wrestler in NCAA history to win four national titles at four weights Saturday night, and Penn State won the national championship for the third year in a row.
The 165-pound Dake beat defending champion David Taylor of Penn State 5-4, joining Cael Sanderson and Pat Smith as four-time NCAA champions.
“Kind of at a loss for words. Definitely amazing feeling. It’s just you get to finally see all your hard work pay off,” Dake said.
Penn State’s Ed Ruth and Quentin Wright won titles in back-to-back matches to seal the fourth national crown for the Nittany Lions and their third under Sanderson.
Penn State had 123.5 points. Oklahoma State was second with 119.5 and Minnesota third with 103 points.
But the team race took a backseat to Dake.
Wrestling fans had been salivating over the idea of a Dake-Taylor final since the day Dake announced his move to 165 pounds in the offseason.
Dake had won titles at 141, 149 and 157 pounds. He boldly jumped up a class knowing that Taylor, the 2012 Hodge Trophy winner as the nation’s best wrestler, stood in his path.
The NCAA shifted its schedule to make the 165-pound matchup the finale, presumably to maximize a probable Dake-Taylor meeting.
It didn’t disappoint.
Taylor took down Dake in 18 seconds for a quick 2-0 lead, but Dake answered with a takedown and an escape to jump ahead 4-2 after two periods.
Dake was called for a late stall, tying it at 4l, but he used his advantage in riding time to close out Taylor.
“Each weight class was a different obstacle, different challenges, and I just had to adapt. My ability to adapt really, really helped me accomplish that,” Dake said.
Even though Taylor fell short, his teammates did not.
Penn State wrapped up the team crown when Wright upset top-seeded Dustin Kilgore of Kent State 8-6 at 197 pounds, giving the Nittany Lions an insurmountable lead over Oklahoma State.
Wright sealed the victory with a pair of impressive late takedowns of Kilgore, an NCAA champion in 2011 who had won 62 straight matches.
Penn State began the day with a virtual lock on the title.
The Cowboys nearly stole the crown away.
Penn State held a 20.5-point lead over Oklahoma State to start Saturday’s competition. But the Nittany Lions didn’t have anyone who earned spots in Saturday morning’s wrestleback session, and the Cowboys made up 17.5 points to cut the deficit to 114.5-111.5.
Chris Perry then gave Oklahoma State a 1-point lead with a win over Penn State’s Matt Brown in the first title match, the 174-pound finals.
The Cowboys only held the lead for about 15 minutes, though.
They never got it back.
Ruth won his second straight national title with a 12-4 win over Robert Hamlin of Lehigh. Ruth finished with a takedown to clinch a major decision, giving the Nittany Lions a crucial extra team point.
“I looked over at the coaches and (they) were just saying `Cut him. Cut him.’ I was like, `Oh wow, he must be going for a major then,”’ Ruth said.
Jesse Delgado became the first 125-pound champion for Illinois, while Ohio State Logan Stieber won his second NCAA title at 133 pounds. Oklahoma’s Kendrick Maple finished an unbeaten season with his first national crown at 141 pounds.
Oklahoma State’s Jordan Oliver scored a takedown in the final 12 seconds to beat Boise State’s Jason Chamberlain 3-2 at 149 pounds. Iowa’s Derek St. John gave the Hawkeyes their lone national champion at 157 pounds.
Minnesota heavyweight Tony Nelson repeated as the national champion.
This was the first NCAA meet since the International Olympic Committee’s recommendation that wrestling not be included in the 2020 Games.
There’s since been a lot of talk about modernizing a sport rooted in antiquity – and upgraded wrestler introductions for the finals were a big hit to the sellout crowd.
The athletes burst through puffs of smoke amid dimmed lights and blaring heavy metal music, their names displayed with colorful lighting. The end of every finals match was marked by four plumes of smoke emanating from each corner of the stage.
The final bursts of white smoke blew for Dake, who finished a brilliant career with an unprecedented title.
“The college wrestling book, I finished it. I finished it with coming out on top,” Dake said.

NCAA wrestling update

Penn State has all but clinched a third straight national title.
All that’s left for the powerhouse Nittany Lions is for David Taylor to defend the title that Cornell’s Kyle Dake has worked so hard to take.
Penn State had 114.5 points and a commanding 20.5-point lead over Oklahoma State heading into Saturday’s finals of the NCAA championships.
Minnesota is third in the team race with 86 points, followed by Iowa with 68.
The Nittany Lions also have five wrestlers set  to compete for a title, including a surging Taylor.
He and Dake — who is one win away from becoming the third four-time NCAA champion — will meet up at 165 pounds in one of the most anticipated championship matches in recent memory.
“It’s pretty simple. He’s going to do something no one is going to do and I’m trying to do something that no one is going to do,” Taylor said.
Dake and Taylor couldn’t avoid each other Friday. A scheduling quirk had them competing on side-to-side mats in the quarters and the semifinals.
Taylor wasted little time making his presence felt to the crowd and his rival.
Taylor dropped Illinois’s Conrad Polz to the mat immediately and completed the pin in just 24 seconds — just as Dake was engaging Nick Sulzer of Virginia in the quarterfinals.
Dake methodically dismantled Sulzer 13-0. But that performance was lost amid Taylor’s ferocious performance, which even had the pro-Hawkeyes crowd buzzing.
Taylor qualified for the final with a pin of No. 3 seed Tyler Yates of Virginia Tech in 3:25. Dake was again less flashy, beating Oklahoma State’s Tyler Caldwell 2-0.
“Obviously, he’s looking pretty good, but I’m not too worried about it,” Dake said about Taylor.
That’s a bit of an understatement considering that Taylor has pinned all four of his NCAA tournament opponents so far.
But Dake has outscored his foes 28-0 at the national meet and holds the edge over Taylor this season, beating him 3-2 on Jan. 2.
The final that wrestling fans have been waiting for since Dake moved up to Taylor’s weight class before this season has come to fruition.
“We both have that same, similar attitude where I’m taking away his dreams and he’s trying to take away mine. That’s just how it is. It comes with the sport,” Dake said.
Dake will be joined in Saturday’s finals by teammates Nico Megaludis (125), Matt Brown (174), Ed Ruth (184) and Quentin Wright (197).
Ohio State sophomore Logan Stieber will defend his title at 133 pounds against Iowa’s Tony Ramos, who survived two sudden victory frames before beating Wisconsin’s Tyler Graff 6-4.
Ramos was a rare bright spot for the disappointing Hawkeyes.
“Hard wrestling. No game plan,” Ramos said about facing Stieber. “You got to go out there and you’ve got to fight, fight and keep on fighting. That’s how I’m going to win.”
Kent State’s Dustin Kilgore will go for his second national title in three years against Wright in what promises to be one of the better finals of the last session.
Oklahoma Kendric Maple will be favored to win at 141 pounds and finish his season at 31-0. Oklahoma State’s Jordan Oliver will go for a second NCAA title at 149 pounds after winning the 2011 title at 133 pounds, but the Cowboys only advanced two wrestlers to the finals after a strong early showing.
The second Oklahoma State finalist, Chris Perry, was on the mat when the lights briefly dimmed. Perry and the rest of the athletes kept on wrestling though — a testament to the extraordinary focus of wrestlers during matches.
“It was kind of weird. It reminded me of the Super Bowl,” Perry said. “It was awkward, but you just kind of — when you’re in the zone, you’re in the zone.”


Strong start for Penn State

DES MOINES, Iowa — Cornell’s Kyle Dake joked that he wasn’t even aware of rival David Taylor’s results.
No one believed him.
Dake, the three-time NCAA champion, remained on course for a final showdown with Taylor, the 2012 Hodge Trophy winner, after the opening matches Thursday in the NCAA wrestling championships.
“Did he win his first match?” Dake joked. “Mainly focused on who I have, what the next step is.”
But it’s Taylor and the two-time defending champion Penn State Nittany Lions with the edge heading into the quarterfinals.
The Nittany Lions went 6-for-6 in the second round and lead the meet with 32.5 points. Oklahoma State was second with 29 points and seven quarterfinalists.
Minnesota was third with 24, followed by Iowa with 22.
“As a team, I feel like everybody is doing what they have to do,” said Penn State’s Ed Ruth, the top seed at 184 pounds.
Dake’s bid for to become the third wrestler with four NCAA titles – and the first in four weight classes – got off to a sluggish start.
Ohio State’s Mark Martin, who entered the tournament at 17-16, kept it 0-0 through two periods. But Dake opened the final frame with an escape and scored a takedown for a 3-0 win.
Dake finished with a 10-0 win over Indiana’s Ryan Leblanc.
“I feel pretty good conditioning wise. I feel healthy,” Dake said. “Guys are having really game plans when they wrestle me. It makes it tough but, a win is a win.”
Taylor was selected the nation’s top wrestler in 2012 before losing his top seeding when Dake moved up a weight class.
Taylor got the favored Nittany Lions started with a brilliant debut.
Taylor crushed John Staudenmayer of North Carolina, pinning him in 2:52. Ruth, followed with a decisive pin and, in the second round, capped a string of three straight pins for the Nittany Lions while extending his winning streak to 65.
Taylor scored the fall over Appalachian State’s Zachary Strickland to earn his spot in the quarterfinals.
The NCAA moved the 165-pound final to the final match Saturday night, presumably to highlight a potential Dake-Taylor matchup, but Taylor and Dake both insist they’re not focused on each other quite yet.
“Bonus points are huge,” Taylor said. “My job is pretty simple. To try and score points and pick up bonus points.”
Iowa scored 10 points in the opening session, good for fourth at the time. But the Hawkeyes suffered a major blow when heavyweight Bobby Telford hurt his knee during an easy win over Wisconsin’s Connor Medbery.
Telford defaulted before his second-round match because of the injury, weakening Iowa’s depth for the team race.
But it looks as though nobody might catch Oklahoma State heavyweight Alan Gelogaev anyway. He pinned both of his first two opponents – in just a total of 52 seconds.
Ohio State’s Logan Steiber, the 2012 winner at 133 pounds, cruised to the quarters with a pair of pins. Steiber nearly made the U.S. Olympic team and remains the overwhelming favorite to repeat as the champion in his class – though second-seeded Tony Ramos of Iowa also racked up a pair of falls Thursday and has the crowd behind him.
“You can hear them. They’re loud. It’s nice,” Ramos said about the pro-Iowa crowd.
The championships continue Friday with the quarter and semifinals, setting up a Saturday night finals for all 10 weight classes.
“Thursday is just kind of for show when it comes to the team points because the big points are scored tomorrow,” Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said. “There are some big matches (Friday) that will make a difference so we need to be ready for them.”

What made this so hard to take was that Wiercioch lost in the same building he will be doing his college wrestling: Pitt's Fitzgerald Fieldhouse.

Not only did Beard beat Wiercioch, but he did something no other wrestler had been able to do for two scholastic seasons – take him down. Beard, a four-time Oklahoma champion with a 163-9 record, did it three times. The first of two in the first period brought ooohs from the capacity crowd.
Wiercioch’s loss came in the same building he’ll be wrestling in next fall. He committed to Pitt before the high school season began.
“Cody might be a little shell-shocked right now,” said Canon-McMillan head coach Chris Mary, who coached the Pennsylvania and WPIAL teams. “But he’ll bounce back.”
A distraught Wiercioch refused comment after his bout.
Beard led 4-2 after one period, taking Wiercioch down twice, but Wiercioch cut the lead to 4-3 with an escape in the second period. Beard escaped to start the third and put the match away with another takedown with 1:07 left.
Wiercioch compiled a 168-5 record to go along with his three gold medals and one silver. He has one more event on his schedule: the Dream Team Classic in Chicago next month.
Beard was named Outstanding Wrestling for the United States team and Benton’s Zain Retherford, who upset undefeated Anthony Ashnault (170-0, 4 titles) from South Plainfield, N.J., 1-0 at 138, was OW for Pennsylvania.
Wiercioch’s Canon-McMillan teammate, Connor Schram, nearly pulled the upset of the tournament when he took Joey Dance, a four-time state champion from Christiansburg, Va., into overtime. Dance, who had a 186-14 record in his scholastic career, managed to win the bout by riding out Schram in overtime.

The WPIAL Team got a 4-2 win by Seth Carr of South Fayette over Sean Badua of Osbourne Park in the first bout and never looked back.
Angelo Broglia of Canon-McMillan also chalked up a win, 3-2, over Justin Williams of Skyline.
Dustin Conti of Jefferson-Morgan lost a 5-2 decision to Zach Epperly of Christiansburg and Garrett Vulcano of Chartiers-Houston fell to Zach Roseberry of Brentsville, 12-3, at 220 pounds.
Four new members were installed in the southwestern Pennsylvania Hall of Fame: Aaron Gatten of Washington High School; George O'Korn of Canon-McMillan; Jake Herbert of North Allegheny; and Greg Jones of Greensburg Salem.

Mary AAA Coach of the Year

Canon-McMillan head coach Chris Mary holds the plaque awarded for being named the PIAA Class AAA Coach of the Year Saturday at the Giant Center in Hershey. Mary led the  Big Macs to their third straight team title in this event  and to two straight championships in the PIAA Team Tournament.


Wash High has new coach

Now that was fast.
Washington High School has a new wrestling coach: John Paiani, who spent the past two seasons as the junior high head coach.
Josh Barrette, who coached the Prexies for the past five seasons, handed in his resignation two weeks ago and the Washington School Board filled the opening at its Monday night meeting.
Barrette was one of many who fought for the survival of the program when the school board wanted to eliminate it, along with the boys tennis and soccer programs.
Barrette said he will assume the role of volunteer assistant coach and work with the kids when possible. Barrette said he resigned so he could spend more time with his children, ages 2 and 4.

Three-for-all for Big Macs

Canon-McMillan had three state champions and won its third straight team title in the PIAA Class AAA Wrestling Championships Saturday night in Hershey.
Connor Schram (126), Solomon Chishko (145) and Cody Wiercioch (170) each won a gold medal and Dalton Macri (120) finished with a silver medal. The Big Macs tied for the school’s best showing. In 1950, Manuel Pihakis, Joe Solomon and Don Haney each won gold medals when it was called Canonsburg High School.
The Big Macs had 99 team points, besting Central Dauphin's 75.
Schram won a 5-3 decision over Michael Kemerer of Franklin Regional in the 126-pound finals.
Chishko put on a dynamic performance in shutting out Chris Vassar of Cedar Cliff, 8-0, in the 145-pound final.

Wiercioch followed three bouts later by tearing through Joey Gartland of Penncrest 7-2 at 170 pounds for his third title.
Dalton Macri won silver after losing in the 120-pound finals and Alex Campbell took eighth at 220.
A.C. Headlee of Waynesburg finished fourth at 113 pounds.

Vulcano, Carr second

Garrett Vulcano of Chartiers-Houston and Seth Carr of South Fayette each took second place in their respective weight classes in the PIAA Class AA Wrestling Championships at the Giant Center in Hershey Saturday afternoon.
Vulcano lost a 7-0 decision to Ryan Solomon of Milton, who won his second straight title and became a four-time state medalist.
Carr lost a 1-0 decision to George Phillippi of Derry at 113 pounds in a rematch of the WPIAL finals of two weeks ago. Interestingly, Phillippi won that bout 1-0.

Bethlehem Catholic easily won the team title with 94.5 points, 24.5 more than Benton (70). Saegertown was third at 46 and Burrell and Trinity tied for fourth at 44.5.
Mike Racciato of Pen Argyl, who won his third gold medal, was named Outstanding Wrestler.
The area had 10 of 16 wrestlers medal. Joining Carr and Vulcano were Jake Rothka of Bentworth, who was eighth at 113; John Demaske (4th at 126) and Dustin Conti (3rd at 170) of Jefferson-Morgan; Nick Gavazzi (5th at 138); Jared Walker (7th at 160) and Mike Fetchet (4th at 170) of South Fayette; Cody Jacobs (6th at 220) of West Greene; and Jake Temple (4th at 220) of Avella.

Canon-Mac powers way to finals

Canon-McMillan all but wrapped up its third straight team tournament title by advancing four wrestlers to the finals in Class AAA: Dalton Macri (120), Connor Schram (126), Solomon Chishko (145) and Cody Wiercioch (170).
Unless something unusual happens, such wrestlers getting thrown out of the tournament that would wipe out their points, the Big Macs will have won the team portion of this event in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Wiercioch is looking for his third state title and Schram his second. macri and Chishko are each chasing their first.
