HERSHEY â€” Last Saturday, seven Punxsutawney area wrestlers traveled to Hershey to compete on Pennsylvania's largest stage for grapplers their age â€”Â the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling State Championship Tournament â€” 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."

But Schall has been making some noise as a freshman at Clarion, having made the transition to college athletics â€” and academics â€”Â seem quite seamless.
