Casey Glunt, James Buchanan: Glunt was the area's highest placer at the PIAA Tournament, sixth at 182 ... The junior went 34-10 to become JB's first-ever state placewinner ... His career record stands at 87-26 ... Glunt placed second in the Section I event and took fourth at districts ... JB coach Matt Gordon said, "He said last year he was going to states this year, but we know it's tougher in AAA. As the season progressed, he realized he had to find a way to win matches against good kids and he did. The best thing to happen to our program was Casey getting to the podium."
Chandler Olson, Shippensburg: A spectacular freshman season ended with Olson claiming the eighth-place medal at the PIAA Championships at 120 ... Olson was 32-7 ... He was a runner-up in the Section I and District 3 tournaments ... Ship coach Tony Yaniello said, "Chandler lost two matches at our first tournament, but he got better as the season went on. He's been around the block in youth tournaments, but it's a different ballgame on varsity. He was actually wrestling two or three pounds underweight most of the season. He thrives on adversity and he'll be much better next year."
David Rump, Chambersburg: Rump completed his junior season at 138 with a 30-11 mark ... He was a runner-up at the Section I event and placed third in District 3 before going 0-2 at the PIAA Championships ... "Ever since David started in fifth grade he's been in the club and working in the room," Trojan coach Doug Rine said. "Last year he was one win from making states. This year he had three straight overtime matches at districts and won the last two to qualify for states. That was a testament to his guts. He counters well on his feet and is very good on top." ... Rump has a 75-42 career record.
Garrett Kyner, Chambersburg: Kyner has piled up a career record of 61-22 in just two years ... The sophomore 126-pounder was 31-8 this year ... He captured his second straight Section I title, then took fourth in the District 3 Tournament and was 0-2 in the state tournament ... Trojan coach Doug Rine said, "Blue (his nickname) was the poster boy for tough draws this year — he got really bad draws at the Beast of the East, Escape the Rock and at states. In every big tournament he was in the toughest draw. But he still won 31 matches against that top competition."
Calvin O'Farrell, Chambersburg: A senior 170-pounder, O'Farrell finished with a record of 33-13 ... His career mark ends at 89-56 ... He placed third at the Section I Tournament and fourth in the District 3 tourney ... At states, O'Farrell went 1-2 ... Trojan coach Doug Rine said, "Calvin is the epitome of hard work pays off — he built himself into the wrestler he became, and he was always trying to make himself better. He had the quickest transition to a headlock I've ever seen and probably the tightest, too." ... O'Farrell plans to join the National Guard and attend Shippensburg University.
Chris Williams, Shippensburg: Williams ended his senior year with a 26-6 record at 170 ... For his career, he was 73-23 ... Williams was fourth at the Section I event ... He lost his first bout at districts, then went 4-1 in consolations to capture fifth place ... Hound coach Tony Yaniello said, "Toward the end of the year Chris had some sickness and an injury. He missed the whole week of practice before sectionals and that hurt, but he still was one win from states. He was quite an achiever; he got 100 percent out of his ability." ... Williams will go to Penn State and may eventually train to be a pilot.
Austin Tucker, James Buchanan: Tucker finished out his four-year career as the Rockets' all-time leader in career wins — he won 117 matches against 25 defeats ... This year he finished 31-7, and had to win two consolation bouts at districts to reach 117 wins ... He was a Section I runner-up and in the top eight at districts ... JB coach Matt Gordon said, "Austin was plagued by injuries his whole career. He had shoulder issues this year and that's one reason why he dropped to 126. We tried to work around that injury. He set his mind to get that record and he did."
Aaron Rump, Chambersburg: In his freshman season, David Rump's younger brother carved out a 36-7 record ... He was a Section I runner-up at 106 pounds and went 4-2 to place fifth in the District 3 Tournament ... "He had a beautiful freshman year and came up just short of making states," Chambersburg coach Doug Rine said. "His future looks really bright. He got to wrestle against most of the state placewinners in AA and AAA at some point this year and he was right there. He needs to get a little more seasoned on his feet and that will make a difference."
Austin Wise, Waynesboro: Wise got in just one bout as a freshman, then went 22-11 in his sophomore year ... He knocked off the No. 1 seed in the Section I tourney and finished as the runner-up ... At the District 3 event, Wise went 1-2 with a pin in the first round ... He finished with 12 pins ... Indian coach Eric Mowen said, "He has the ability and the skills to get to the next level. If he can improve on the mental side and better prepare, he has a chance. Getting to districts and winning a match will help his confidence, so his expectations will be higher."
Josh Setliff, Mercersburg Academy: Setliff wrestled for two years with the Blue Storm, putting up a 46-17 record ... As a senior, he went 24-6 at 170 pounds ... Setliff went 3-2 and placed fourth at the PAISSA state tournament and qualified for the national prep championships ... Blue Storm coach Nate Jacklin said, "He was our most improved wrestler this year and he came in every day to work. He's a blue-collar guy — he doesn't have a lot of technique, but what he has, he hits hard. He was solid on his feet and was good at riding." ... Setliff plans to attend U. of Virginia.
