Lot at stake in AA finals

South Fayette’s Jared Walker is looking to become only the 25th wrestler in the history of the WPIAL to win four Class AA championships. Walker, a 160-pound senior from South Fayette won at 160 pounds the last two seasons and at 152 as a freshman.
Walker, a Kent State recruit, has a 30-3 record and is the top seed in the 160 weight class.
Three other wrestlers will try to remain undefeated: Gavin Teasdale of Jefferson-Morgan, who is 36-0 at 106; Mike Carr of South Fayette, who is 34-0 at 138; and Luke Fournier of Elizabeth Forward, who is 26-0 at 195. Fournier pinned Main in last week’s Section 2-AA Tournament.
Austin McDermitt of Burgettstown is looking for his third consecutive WPIAL championship. The senior is 32-1 and the second seed at 120 pounds.
Nine wrestlers return to defend their Class AA titles: Carr, Walker, McDermitt, South Park’s Dallas Bulsak, Jake Wentzel and Greg Bulsak and Jefferson-Morgan’s Bill Bowlen.
The top 
seven wrestlers in each weight class advance to the Southwest Region Tournament at Canon-McMillan High School Feb. 27 and 28.

Dallas Bulsak didn't was hurt and did not wrestle in sections, so he will not be defending his title. Good reporting!
