Three Tigers Medal At WPIAL Tournament, Dylan Coy Wins Gold
North Allegheny junior Dylan Coy won a WPIAL title at 120 pounds and two other Tigers won bronze at the WPIAL Class AAA individual tournament on Saturday at Canon-McMillan High School. 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 the semifinals, Coy earned a 7-0 decision over Jacob Houpt of Canon-McMillan and followed with a 4-3 decision against Waynesburg’s Mac Church, the top seed in the bracket, to win his first WPIAL crown.
After a quarterfinal round loss for Gorman to begin action at 126 pounds, he rebounded in the consolation bracket with an 8-0 decision against Butler’s Nick Schaukowitsch. 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.
Also competing for North Allegheny at the WPIAL Class individual wrestling tournament were Nathan Monteparte (132), Brad Stipetich (138), Max Stedeford (145), Travis Stipetich (172) and Brady Leczo (215). For North Allegheny results, see below.
Coy, Gorman and McCorkle will continue their seasons on Saturday, March 6 at the PIAA Western Super Regional.
