The annual Pittsburgh Wrestling has once again delivered an incredibly successful event. Not only did The Classic showcase some of the most talented high school seniors in the nation on Friday night, but the event was also able to raise some money for charity in the process for the local Boys and Girls Clubs. From fans to charity to the competitors themselves, everybody wins.
It was a clean sweep for Pennsylvania. The Keystone State wrestlers won both team duals and the individual women's match as well.
During the undercard, Team WPIAL demolished Team Maryland, taking ten of the 12 individual bouts, winning 41-6.
In the marquee women's matchup, No. 2 Montana DeLawder (Gettysburg, PA) dominated the No. 1 Adrienna Turner (Davis, CA) through the first three minutes before earing the fall midway through the second frame.
In the main event, Team Pennsylvania narrowly edged out Team USA, 27-23, in a dual that came down to the final match. With that, Team Pennsylvania earned its first win against Team USA since the 2011 Classic. Team Pennsylvania won six of the 12 individual bouts.
Here are some takeaways from the night of all-star high school wrestling action.
