Ken Wunderley profiles the South Allegheny wrestling team. Read his story below.
The South Allegheny wrestling team tied two school records at last year's Allegheny County Tournament.
The Gladiators had four wrestlers earn All-County honors by placing among the top eight in their weight class. They also had two entries advance to the finals. Both marks matched the performance turned in by the Gladiators' 2008 squad.
Coach Anthony DiGiorgio believes the Gladiators can match, if not improve, on last year's performance at this year's tournament, which begins this morning at Fox Chapel High School.
"This tournament is so big and has so many Class AAA teams," said DiGiorgio, referring to the fact that South Allegheny is a Class AA school. "Matching last year's performance will not be easy, but it is possible."
