Saegertown

Coach (season/record): Jim Mulligan (5th/49-9)

2011-12 overall record: 11-2

2011-12 region record: 8-1

Top wrestlers lost: Justin Mitchell, Branden Stafford, Josh Tomiczek, Jerod Young

Top wrestlers returning: Dylan Auck, Quinton Ross, Bing-Bong Elizon, Tyler Vath, Nick Monico, Lucas Smith, Garrett Zuver, Matt Humes, Lance Neuscheler, Aaron Jackson, Andrew Boylan, Jeremy Mitchell, Dylan Reynolds, Brock Henderson, John Macken, James Sowers

Assistant coaches: Adam Horne, Steve Tomiczek, Pat Bradshaw, Larry Lee, Brett Vath, Luke Harrison

Outlook: The Panthers had an outstanding 2011-12 season, with the only two losses coming to PIAA Class AA third-place finisher Fort LeBoeuf. Although they lost several quality wrestlers from that team, plenty of talent returns led by Vath, who went 42-4 last season, won district and regional titles and finished fifth in the state at 106 pounds. He is slated to move up to 120. Dylan Reynolds went 31-8 last season and finished fifth in the district at 160 for Cambridge Springs. He is expected to compete at 182 this season. Overall, the Panthers have a good mix of seniors and underclassmen, and enough quality depth to compete for a region title and factor into the D-10 Class AA team race.

Girard

Coach (season/record): Dave Onorato (4th/12-47)

2011-12 overall record: 9-12

2011-12 region record: 0-8

Top wrestlers lost: Eric Miller

Top wrestlers returning: Trevor McCray, Gage Dalton, Christian Bock, Vitaliey Kleschevinikov, Dan Daugherty

Assistant coaches: Ed Onorato, Jason Johnson

Outlook: Onorato has gradually rebuilt Girard’s program and as he begins his fourth season expects to field a competitive lineup with a few wrestlers who have the potential to make deep postseason runs. At the top of that list is McCray, who is 80-24 in his career and put together a 33-7 season in 2011-12, when he was one of three District 10 qualifiers for the YellowJackets. The other returning D-10 qualifiers are Christian Bock, who went 20-19 last season, and Dan Daugherty, who was 15-19 last year. McCray projects at 138 or 145, with Bock at 160 or 170 and Daugherty at 195 or 220. Dalton is penciled in at 132 or 138, with┬áKleschevinikov at 170 or 182. Freshman Brendan Kohan should slide in at 152 or 160 after an accomplished junior career.
