'Curse' is broken: Young crowned PJW champ Giavedoni places, five others compete

March 30, 2012

HERSHEY — Last Saturday, seven Punxsutawney area wrestlers traveled to Hershey to compete on Pennsylvania's largest stage for grapplers their age — the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling State Championship Tournament — and one grappler attained a long-awaited, highly-coveted prize when Kaleb Young was crowned state champion at 117 pounds in the 13- and 14-year-old class.

"We can't be happy enough for Kaleb," Punxsy coach Bill Burke said upon returning from Hershey. "I guess we can say 'the third time is a charm,' as he was a state runner-up twice previously."

Milea Schall, a 2011 PAHS grad and long-distance event specialist, is described as a pretty quiet sort of athlete, who goes about her business by her former coach George Wehrle. But Schall has been making some noise as a freshman at Clarion, having made the transition to college athletics — and academics — seem quite seamless.
