HERSHEY — Drawing a tough opponent in the opening round of the PIAA Class 3-A state wrestling championships, Dallastown senior Bryce Shields knew earning a first ever state medal would be difficult.

Despite losing his opener on Thursday, 7-5, to Council Rock South’s Joe Doyle, the defeat gave him confidence for the rest of the tournament. He gave one of the top 220-pound wrestlers in the state a challenge. The only downside to it was that one more loss and his high school career would be over.

HERSHEY — You can excuse Michael Wolfgram for not feeling over-confident heading into the PIAA Class AAA wrestling championships Thursday evening.

Even with a perfect 34-0 record heading into his opening-round contest at the Giant Center, Wolfgram admitted he was a little worried before his eventual clash with Northeastern heavyweight Blaine Yinger.

Andrew Barnett

The legend of Chance Marsteller’s high school wrestling career at Kennard-Dale is well known, not just in York County, but around wrestling circles around the state.

The former Ram standout went 166-0 in his four years, winning four PIAA state titles.

So, it’s ironic that, of all the great wrestlers to come out of these parts, the best of the bunch came from a wrestling program that hardly has a pedigree of greatness outside of him.

KUEHNE

High school sports drive our winter coverage.

That’s no big secret.

It’s dictated by the frenzied fan interest in the exploits of our young York County athletes.

If you wanted proof of that prep passion, all you had to do was try to squeeze into one of the packed local gyms during the recent boys’ basketball playoffs, or witness the large Giant Center crowds for both District 3 basketball and wrestling.

At the same time, however, the county winter sports scene does not begin and end with high school athletics.

Wolfgram

HERSHEY — Going into the District 3 3-A wrestling tournament at Hershey’s Giant Center, Central York sophomore Michael Wolfgram knew that, in this case, zero equaled one.

Undefeated on the season heading into the three-day event, Wolfgram knew that if he kept a zero in the loss column, it meant he’d head into the state tournament in two weeks as the top seed out of District 3 as the 3-A champion.

Mission accomplished.

PIAA Wrestling Championships

Nobody knew quite what to expect when the Giant Center played host to the District 3 wrestling competition for the first time.

For years, the event was contested at the old Hersheypark Arena, but in 2017, the tournament was moved across the parking lot to the much more extravagant Giant Center.
