Sam Breese

Lakeview wrestler Sam Breese came up with a big performance when he needed it the most. The junior won the 285-pound class at the Class AA northwest regional in Sharon to earn a spot in the PIAA championship tournament in Hershey. Breese picked up an impressive pin of Union City’s Jeff Burger in 1 minute, 49 seconds to win a loaded bracket.

He continued his dominance this weekend at the PIAA meet, winning three straight matches to earn a spot in today’s Class AA title match. He earned a trip to the finals by pinning Bethlehem Catholic’s Andrew Dunn 4 minutes, 34 seconds. He will face Port Allegany’s Nicholas Budd (36-1) in the finals.
