Ken Wunderley profiles Pine-Richland wrestler Hunter Baxter. Read his story below.
Hunter Baxter worked very hard during the offseason to improve his riding skills.
That extra effort paid off during the finals of the Allegheny County Tournament, held last weekend at Fox Chapel High School.
Baxter, a junior at Pine-Richland, claimed the 120-pound title with a 1-0 victory against Justin Perkins of Penn Hills. Baxter scored the only point with a second-period escape, then rode Jenkins for the final two minutes to claim his second county.
"I went to a lot of Young Guns [Wrestling Club] clinics over the summer that concentrated on working from the top position. I worked very hard with my workout partners and coaches to improve my riding skills," Baxter said.
