Weigh-in: Fort LeBoeuf and Warren

Fort LeBoeuf

Coach (season/record): Tim Simon (4th/52-13)

2011-12 overall record: 18-3

2011-12 region record: 8-0

Top wrestlers lost: Kody Pace, Brandon Puckly, Riley Smith, Craig Cihon

Top wrestlers returning: Tyler Kuzma, Adam Borgia, George Mcguire, Brad Malinowski, Taylor Harrington, Taylor Fox, Jack Middleton, Evan Daley, Nate Conti

Assistant coaches: Steve Waite, Scott Waite, Dan Baney, Ethan Saylor

Outlook: The Bison will reach into one of the state’s deepest feeder systems to replace four standouts from last season, when Fort LeBoeuf finished third in the PIAA Class AA team dual championships and had an outstanding state individual tournament. Cihon (47 wins, 2nd at Hershey) and Pace (49 wins, 3rd) led the way, while Puckley went 40-10 and was a state qualifier and Smith was 38-15 and a regional consolation semifinalist. While their firepower is gone, plenty of talent remains. Daley is back after a tremendous junior season in which he went 50-6 and finished fifth at Hershey. Mcguire is a returning state qualifier who went 33-18, and Harrington (37-13 last season) and Malinowski (18-15) each were fourth at regionals. There’s no reason to expect anything less than another run at the D-10 and perhaps even PIAA team Class AA titles, and LeBoeuf will have at least one strong individual championship contender in Daley.
