Hempfield's Sam Krivus, Latrobe's Luke Pletcher, and Burrell's Allan Beattie claimed a second straight title at the King of the Mountain Tournament, held Dec. 12-13 at Central Valley High School.
Krivus was voted Outstanding Wrestler after a 5-1 win against Penn-Trafford's Cameron Coy in the 138-pound final. Pletcher claimed the 132-pound title with a 3-1 win against Korbin Myers of Boiling Springs. Beattie claimed his second 285-pound title by medical forfeit over Latrobe's Tyler Mears.
"Korbin Myers was the last wrestler to beat Luke," Latrobe coach Tad Harbert said. "And it was at this tournament. They met in the (2012) consolation semifinals during Luke's freshman year, and Myers beat him 3-1 in overtime. The rematch had the same score, but this time Luke came away with the title."
