ALTOONA â A Punxsy record 10 wrestlers advanced to Friday and Saturday's AAA Northwest Regional Tournament, and for one Chucks' grappler, sophomore Joel Bowers at 113 pounds, the weekend was a great success, as Bowers ended the tournament second in the region to earn a berth to the PIAA Class AAA State Championships Thursday through Saturday in Hershey.
Bowers' weekend started Friday with a pair of notches in the win column, but the first came in unusual fashion with a victory by forfeit over Obama's Malik Green.
