Reynolds wrestlers succumb to Bethlehem Catholic

The Bethlehem Catholic Golden Hawks became the first wrestling team to win the PIAA Class AA tournament four consecutive seasons thanks to Saturday afternoon’s 41-15 victory over Reynolds at Hershey’s Giant Center.

Bethlehem Catholic (16-0) joined Class AAA entrants Easton and Central Dauphin as the only programs to win four straight titles. The Golden Hawks outscored their four tournament opponents over the weekend by a combined score of 235-18.

Reynolds (24-3) also bowed out to Bethlehem Catholic in the 2013 Class AA state final. The Raiders were state champs in 2006, 2007 and 2009.

The Pennsylvania Cable Network will broadcast the Class AA final Saturday at 10 p.m.
