Wrestling: All-Time Teams - Gateway

Written by Ken Wunderley on .

Southwestern Pennsylvania has been a hotbed for high school wrestling since the WPIAL held its first tournament in 1936. The Sports Town website will honor the WPIAL's best wrestlers of all-time during the 2016-17 season. Wrestling Historian Ken "Stats" Wunderley, with the help of former Mt. Lebanon coach Bill Lewis, will pick an All-Time Team for 72 high schools from the WPIAL.

The All-Time Teams will feature the best wrestlers from those schools. We will feature 6 or 7 high schools each Wednesday on Sports Town for 10 weeks during the season. The All-Time lists reflect high school accomplishments only. College and international accomplishments were not considered.

The featured schools for Week 6 are: Gateway, Greensburg Salem, Kittaning/Armstrong, Plum, South Fayette, Waynesburg, and Yough.

Twelve Gateway wrestlers have qualified for the PIAA Tournament. Robert McKinley, Gateway's only PIAA finalist, is the MVP. Below is Gateway's top 12 wrestlers in alphabetical order.

Boys Basketball: Gateway rebounds from dismal start

Written by Keith Barnes on .

It would be hard to start out any worse than Gateway.

It wasn't the five consecutive losses to open the year. It was that three of those defeats were blowouts of at least 16 points and two other close ones, against Penn-Trafford and West Mifflin, the teams have a combined record of 5-15.

Maybe all the Gators needed was to get into Class 5A Section 3 play.

Despite coming into its section slate with a 1-6 record, Gateway (3-6, 2-0) has opened with back-to-back wins against Kiski Area and Franklin Regional and have sole possession of first place. What the Gators will have to do, though, is sweep the week against Armstrong and Greensburg Salem and set up a first-place showdown with Highlands for Tuesday.
