'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."
