Adam Rohan, Jayson Flener Take Part In PIAA Individual Tournament

Posted on:

North Allegheny seniors Adam Rohan and Jayson Flener competed at the PIAA Class AAA individual wrestling tournament at the Giant Center in Hershey.

It was a sweet start in Hershey for Rohan, who opened the 160-pound bracket on Thursday evening with a pigtail victory over Shane McGurrin of Pennsbury by a 5-2 decision. After a loss to West Allegheny’s Shawn Taylor in the first round, Rohan bounced back on Friday with a hard-fought 1-0 decision over Jimmy Spindler of Pittston Area in the consolation bracket. Unfortunately, Bethlehem Catholic’s Andrew Harmon ousted Rohan from the tournament with a win in the third round of the consolation bracket. With a 2-2 showing at states, Rohan ends the season with a 31-16 record.

At 145 pounds, Flener sustained back-to-back losses at the tournament. Despite a tough draw at Hershey, Flener caps the season with an impressive 31-14 record.

The outstanding efforts by Rohan and Flener concludes another strong season for the North Allegheny boys’ wrestling program. Congratulations to coach Jamie Kyriazis and the entire wrestling team for a great year.
