Rumpler Wins Silver In First-Ever PIAA Girls Wrestling Championships

Posted on:

Senior Leyna Rumpler capped an historic career at North Allegheny with a second-place performance at the PIAA girls’ individual wrestling championship in Hershey. Rumpler, who won gold at states last season at 148 pounds, earned her second silver medal at states on Saturday by finishing in second place at 155 pounds. She also took second place at the state championships as a sophomore. This weekend’s state tournament was the first ever sanctioned by the PIAA, making Rumpler the first Tiger in program history to garner a medal in PIAA competition.

Rumpler opened the three-day tournament on Thursday by securing her 100th career victory with a win by fall over Delaware Valley’s Juliet Fitzpatrick. After reaching the 100-win plateau, Rumpler continued to blaze her trail through the 155-pound bracket on Friday with a pin fall over Mylea Lambert of Northampton in the quarterfinals and followed with a hard-fought victory over Raegan Snider of Northern Bedford. Tied 1-1 after regular time and a scoreless overtime, led to a 30 second ultimate tiebreaker. Rumpler was able to successfully ride out Snider and win 2-1. The victory over Snider set the stage for another significant battle between Rumpler and Hickory’s Avry Rihal.

The top two-ranked wrestlers in the state at 155 pounds dueled last week with Rumpler defeating Rihal by a 2-1 decision for the PIAA West Regional title. However, in the rematch, it was Rihal who earned a narrow victory with a 1-0 decision for the PIAA championship.

Rumpler finishes her career at North Allegheny with 102 career wins and a trophy case filled with medals. Congratulations to Rumpler and all of the members of the North Allegheny girls’ wrestling team for another historic season.

North Allegheny senior Leyna Rumpler continued her quest for a second consecutive individual state championship with a gold medal performance at the PIAA West Regional on Saturday at Canon-McMillan High School.

That set the stage for a battle between the top two-ranked wrestlers in the state at 155 pounds.

Rumpler and opponent Avry Rihal of Hickory each had only one loss on the season entering the title bout. The loss for each participant came against one another at tournaments earlier in the season. In the rubber match, Rumpler picked up a hard-fought 2-1 decision to win the PIAA West Regional title over Rihal. With the victory, Rumpler improves to 32-1 on the season, while Rihal drops to 27-2.

In addition to Rumpler, four other Tigers also participated at the PIAA West Regional.

The comeback started with a pin fall by Maya Scott in 35 seconds at 142 pounds and was followed by another pin fall by Morrison at 148 pounds to cut the deficit to 30-18. After a win by forfeit for Ava Frailey at 155 pounds trimmed the deficit even further at 30-24, the Tigers tied the meet at 30-30 on a win by fall courtesy of Rumpler at 170 pounds over Zoey Sample. With two bouts remaining, NA picked up two more wins by forfeit to claim a 42-30 triumph.
