PIAA State Wrestling, Day 1

This week I got a call from work that I’d be traveling to Hershey to cover 8 local students wrestling in the PIAA State Championships.  It’s three long days full of wrestling in the Giant Center with several mats and cheering fans.

I arrived this morning for the preliminary rounds for class AA.  Both wrestlers ended their seasons after losing in the preliminaries and the first round of consolations.

The afternoon session was the preliminaries for the AAA, which we had 6 kids in.  I also was photographing several guys who have signed to Penn State, or have Penn State as an option for continuing their wrestling career.

From the preliminaries we we had 2 winners, and 4 move on to the consolation round. Consolations did not go well for Centre County wrestlers, with none of them advancing.

Tomorrow will be quarterfinals for two Bald Eagle Area wrestlers.
