Section I wrestling: York-Adams earns 25 medals at Class AA sectional

Hundreds of people braved the winter weather Saturday afternoon and made the trek to Susquenita High School to see the District 3 Class AA Section I wrestling tournament.

The YAIAA's contingent of wrestlers made it worth their while.

YAIAA wrestlers brought home seven gold medals, seven silver medals and 11 bronze medals between the 14 weight classes.

EAGLES FLY HIGH >> Bermudian Springs proved to be the class of the York-Adams league. The Eagles went 4-for-4 in title matches, winning at 170 pounds (Briton Shelton), 182 (Colton Dull), 220 (Sam McCollum) and 285 (Brady Linebaugh). All four dominated. Shelton and Dull earned their gold medals in back-to-back matches that ended in pins under two minutes combined.

McCollum pinned his first two opponents in less than a minute before running into Michael Rider of Delone in the final, which proved to be a tough out.

"I was surprised he came up because he wrestled at 195 all season," McCollum said of Rider. "He's a heck of a kid, and he had a great tournament."

In his return to the venue where he injured an elbow last season, Linebaugh earned a pin, then two decisions for a gold at 285.

The Eagles also brought home four bronze medals. In all, 11 Eagles qualified for next week's district tournament in Hershey.

SQUIRES SHOW UP BIG >> Delone advanced eight wrestlers through to districts, and its wrestlers made three appearances in gold-medal matches. Rider bumped up to 220 pounds and pulled two upsets over Nate Mentzer and Jakob Paul, before falling in a decision to McCollum.

"I knew going to 220, I could wear those guys down," Rider said. "I'm not the best guy wrestling, but I wear them down and beat them by one point, and that's what I did. I made it to the finals with defense."

Antonio Ugarte (126) and Bryce Perkins (285) made impressive runs in their brackets before falling in the finals.

"We were hoping to take eight (to districts) and we got eight," Delone Catholic head coach Frank Sneeringer said. "They're getting better, and a lot of these guys are young. This isn't a surprise anymore, these guys work hard."

The Squires earned bronze medals at 145 (Brian Shermeyer), 152 (Lucas Shull), 160 (Brady Repasky) and 170 (Josh Sneeringer). Shermeyer picked up two pins and a 5-0 decision in the consolation bracket after being bounced in the quarterfinals by Boiling Spring's AJ Kostyak.

CANNERS ADVANCE NINE >>> Biglerville had an impressive showing with nine wrestlers advancing to districts.

Nate Newberry garnered the loudest ovation from the Canners faithful when he earned a 7-1 decision over Kostyak in the 145-pound title bout.

"This was on the higher end of what we were hoping for," Biglerville head coach Nate Becker said of his team's overall performance.

Scott Cooper, who was just returning from a foot injury that has hampered him since football season, made a run to the final at 138 pounds, but defaulted when he re-aggravated the injury.

"He's a smart kid and he understands that there's a bigger goal here and that we have to take care of him," Becker said of Cooper. "It was something that I had thought of in case he was a little dinged up after the semifinals."

The Canners qualified in every weight class above 132 except for 195.

GARLAND GETS GOLD >> Four Nighthawks qualified to move on, but Caleb Garland was the highlight of the day for Hanover.

Garland pinned Biglerville's Brandon Miller and Newport's Aaron Finicle. Then he won the title at 120 with a tech fall over Upper Dauphin's Connor Boyer.

"He has really elevated his game this year," Hanover head coach Kurt Brenner said of Garland. "He's having a blast, he's dominating, and he's having fun doing it."

Garland's season is far from over, Brenner said.

"District champ, then regional champ, then state champ, he wants to win them all," Brenner said. "That's been his goal and he said that since the beginning of the year."

Travis Golden, Josh McClintock and Dylan Gladfelter also earned district berths.

"We had four last year and we wanted to get five this year," Brenner said. "But we knew that it would take us wins that we weren't expecting."

BARSHINGER WINS TITLE >> Eastern York's Lucas Barshinger earned a pin in the 195 title bout, recording a fall in 59 seconds against Littlestown's Matt Guilday. Barshing, however, survived a scare in the semifinals, scoring late in the third period to advance to the title bout with a 5-4 victory against Boiling Springs' Nate Gouhin.
