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.
