Punxsy's Young to wrestle at Mercyhurst

April 13, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Now that he's completed a career as Punxsutawney Area High School's winningest wrestler, senior Kody Young is prepared to take the next step.

Young, who finished with 143 victories and the second-most falls in District IX history, signed with Division II Mercyhurst College Wednesday.

Young was interested in Division I schools Edinboro University and Clarion University, but ultimately chose Mercyhurst with a physical therapy major.

Punxsy coach and Young's father, Buddy Young, said that his son is a good fit at Mercyhurst, which is led by head coach Mike Wehler.
