"Cameron Coy had come close to knocking off a state champion a couple times this season.
A Penn-Trafford freshman, he lost, 1-0, to 2013 120-pound PIAA title winner Sam Krivus of Hempfield Area at the King of the Mountain tournament in December.
Then on Feb. 22 at the Class AAA Section 1 tournament, Coy fell, 2-1, to 2013 132-pound state champion Tyler Smith of Franklin Regional.
But on Saturday, Coy finally broke through, defeating Smith in the WPIAL Class AAA 132-pound championship bout, 5-2.
"I knew I had nothing to lose," he said. "I had no worries going out there. I was just going to try to have fun and play around.""
Tri-State Sports & News Service writer Ryan Riordan profiles the Franklin Regional and Latrobe wrestling teams. Click here to read his story.
"Franklin Regional and Latrobe were the two best Class AAA teams all season, so it's no surprise they are leading the way to Hershey.
The Panthers had six wrestlers reach the WPIAL final Saturday, with three winning, while Latrobe had two champions, two runners-up and a third-place finisher at the district tournament.
"I don't think we wrestled our greatest yet; I think we have a little bit better to get," Franklin Regional coach Eric Mausser said. "Guys did a good job getting to the final, but it's kind of bittersweet. We had three champions and we're very proud of those guys, and three that finish as runner-up. But it's the toughest district in Pennsylvania, and to be in the final is a great achievement."
The Panthers, who defeated Latrobe in the final of the WPIAL and PIAA team tournaments, started the championship round well as Devin Brown and Spencer Lee won titles at 106 and 113 pounds."
