HERSHEY — The wrestling competition does not come at any higher scholastic level than at the Pennsylvania state championships.

Punxsy’s state qualifying duo proved it belonged on the first day of the PIAA AAA Championships at Hershey.

On Thursday, Kaleb Young (126) rebounded from down a point with 40 seconds left for five points to pull out a 10-6 win over Boyertown’s Eddie Kriczky.

Young's elder teammate, Joel Bowers, produced a pair of solid efforts but came up just short in his run at states.
