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.
