Connor Payne has already joined one "Century Club," now he's shooting for another.
Payne, a senior at South Side Beaver High School, became a member of the WPIAL's Century Club -- wrestlers with 100 career victories -- on Jan. 5 at the Midwestern Athletic Conference Tournament.
"My 100th win came in the consolation final [against Montour's David Lyons]," Payne said. "And the tournament was held at South Side Beaver. I couldn't have asked for much more than that."
Payne has since added 12 wins to his total this season and boasts a 112-42 career record.
"Connor is the ninth wrestler in South Side Beaver history to reach 100 wins," South Side Beaver coach Jerry McCoy said. "That's something to be proud of -- but he has a chance to join an even more exclusive club. He needs only six pins to reach 100 career pins."
