March 7, 2019
The Luminary

Seven local wrestlers will be making the trip to Hershey to compete for the gold at the PIAA Class AA State Wrestling championships. Those wrestlers earned the spot by placing in the top four at the Northeast Regional tournament this past weekend in Williamsport.

Bryce Vollman, Muncy, was the lone champion taking first in 126-pound weight division when he defeated Ian Yoder of Southern Columbia by a decision of 3-2. Four other Muncy wrestlers will be on the road with Vollman to the Giant Center competing for a medal. Those wrestlers include: Mario Barberio, 4th, (138); Ty Nixon, 3rd, (160); Ethan Gush, 4th, (170); and Mike Kustanbauter, 4th, (182).

Hughesville will be sending two of their wrestlers after they both finished in the third place spot. Ben Heinrich will be making his first trip to the arena competing in the 126-pound weight division, and Luke Gorg (138) is heading back after his third-place finish.
