NA Wrestling Great Ty Moore Dies At Age 43
North Allegheny wrestling great and four-time PIAA champion, Ty Moore died on Tuesday at the age of 43. A 1990 North Allegheny graduate, Moore became the first wrestler in the state to win 100 matches and is one of only 12 wrestlers to win four PIAA championships, doing so at 95, 105, 112 and 119 pounds.
Moore amassed a career record of 146-1 at North Allegheny and was a member of a Tigers lineup in 1988 that ranked No. 1 in the nation by Amateur Wrestling News. He was inducted into the North Allegheny Hall of Fame in 1998 and the WPIAL Hall of Fame in 2010.
After his graduation from North Allegheny, Moore was a four-year starter at North Carolina and compiled a record of 80-31-2, including 26 pins. A three-time NCAA qualifier and two-time Atlantic Coast Conference runner-up, Moore remained involved in the sport in Western Pennsylvania following his wrestling career and was a mentor to many in the area.
The North Allegheny family offers its condolences and best wishes to the Moore family.
