NA Girls Conclude Inaugural Season At State Championships

Posted on:

The NA Girls Wrestling team traveled to Manhiem, PA this past weekend to compete at the MyHouse PA Girls HS State Wrestling Championships. A total of 110 high school girls from across the state competed and marked the first time that officially approved girls teams from PIAA High Schools competed at the Championships. This also concluded the very first year for the Girls Varsity program at North Allegheny.

The Tigers were led by an 8th place finish by freshman Leyna Rumpler at 147 pounds. She started off the day strong, taking a 2-0 lead over Kylie Monroe from Gettysburg into the second period. However Monroe would pick up the fall for the win late in the 2nd period. After receiving a bye in the first round of the consolations, Leyna faced off against Easton senior, Tracy Charles. Rumpler wasted no time securing the takedown and picking up the fall in 32 seconds to advance. In the next round Leyna faced Mia Bumbarger, a junior from Pottstown. Bumbarger came into the tournament having pinned Leyna earlier in the year and also finished with a 4-5 record in boys varsity action. Leyna looked to have flipped the script with a first period takedown and an escape in the second period to take a 3-0 lead. Unfortunately  Bumbarger locked up a throw and was able to secure the pin to end the tournament for Rumpler.
At 101 pounds, sophomore Hannah Williams dropped her first match by fall to senior Karleigh Steiner of Saegertown, who finished 2nd and was also the runner up at District 10 AA Boys sectional tournament. In William’s next match she found herself losing 11-0 to Leeah Eisenhower of Central Mountain. Determined to not give up, Hannah battled back, but ultimately fell by decision 12-5.
Junior Taylor Stover, 122 pounds, jumped out to a 2-0 lead in her first match against freshman Gisele Ramirez of Souderton before getting pinned in the second period. Ramirez eventually placed 6th. In Stover’s final match she lost by fall to senior Zoe Earle of Pottstown.
All three girls had a very successful first season for the girls wrestling team and look forward to building on the momentum for next year.

Dylan Coy Takes 5th Place at PIAA Western Super Regional

Posted on:

North Allegheny had three representatives in the PIAA Class AAA Western Super Regional on Saturday and junior Dylan Coy came away with a fifth-place showing in the 120-pound weight class.

Fresh off of winning his first WPIAL individual title last week, Coy opened the Super Regional with a 6-3 decision over Josh Hillard of Manheim Township in the tournament quarterfinals. Despite losing in his next two bouts, Coy rebounded in the fifth-place consolation bout with a rematch with Hillard and earned a 3-0 decision. While Coy did finish in the fifth place, did not qualify for the PIAA championships as only the top four wrestlers in each weight class advanced.

Also competing in the PIAA Western Super Regional were Nick Gorman (120) and Collin McCorkle (160). All North Allegheny results are listed below. Congratulations to the entire NA wrestling team and coaching staff for another outstanding season.

Adding to an outstanding day for North Allegheny wrestlers, sophomore Nick Gorman (126) and senior Collin McCorkle (160) each won third-place consolation bouts in their respective weight classes to advance to the PIAA Western Super Regional next weekend.

Coy, who took third place at WPIALs last season, opened the 120-pound bracket in the quarterfinals with a dominant 18-2 tech fall over Ryan Klingensmith of Kiski Area.

In second round consolation, Gorman won in a 3-2 UTB against Trinity’s Blake Reihner and quickly pinned Connellsville’s Mason Prinkey in 48 seconds in the third-place bout.

At 160 pounds, McCorkle opened with a 3-2 decision over Waynesburg’s Nate Stephensen in the quarterfinals. McCorkle met a familiar foe in the semifinals and took state medalist Cole Spencer of Pine-Richland to the limit, but narrowly fell by a 1-0 decision. In the consolations, McCorkle bounced back with a win by fall over Christopher Beatty of Chartiers Valley and followed by winning 3-2 UTB over Kiski Area’s Enzo Morlacci of Kiski Area in the third-place bout.
