BV, Burrell top seeds in tourney

Thanks to a regular season victory over Franklin Regional, Belle Vernon received the No. 1 seed in the WPIAL Class AAA Team Tournament and Burrell, seeking its ninth consecutive title, was top seeded in Class AA.
Matches get under way Monday with four Class AAA pigtail dual meets. The rest of the tournament starts Wednesday with four teams wrestling at the top seeds – No. 2 South Fayette, No. 3 McGuffey and No. 4 Jefferson-Morgan in Class AA and Belle Vernon, No. 2 Franklin Regional, No. 3 North Allegheny and No. 4 Latrobe in Class AAA. The doubleheaders at these sites are at 6 p.m. with the winners competing at 7:30 p.m. Burrell, which has a first-round bye, is in a three-team pod.
One change for this season is that the semifinals and finals will be wrestled at one site Saturday, Jan. 31. Semifinals are at 1 p.m. and finals are at 3:30 p.m. Penn Hills is the site for Class AAA and Canon-McMillan for Class AA.
Other local teams competing are Burgettstown and Beth-Center at the Jefferson-Morgan pod, and Chartiers-Houston at the McGuffey pod in Class AA; and Waynesburg at the Belle Vernon pod in Class AAA.
In Class AAA, Trinity travels to Butler and Peters Township is at Hopewell for 7 p.m. pigtail matches Monday. If successful in the pigtail round, Peters Township would draw North Allegheny and Trinity would meet Franklin Regional in the first round.
