Kiski Area won the WPIAL Class AAA team championship on Saturday, and Cam Connor picked up an individual accomplishment along the way.

The junior 145-pounder secured his 100th career victory with a 2-1 decision over Waynesburg's Colby Morris during the Cavaliers' 39-26 win in the semifinals. He added No. 101 with a 5-1 decision over Canon-McMillan's Tanner Rohaley in the championship match as the Cavaliers defended their title with a 33-24 win.

“It was great getting that milestone, but I'm just trying to keep on winning now,” Connor said. “That milestone's obviously a huge number, but after that there's like no other milestones.”

Connor and Morris were scoreless going into the third period of their bout. Connor, who started the period on bottom, got a reversal to take the lead and held off Morris after his escape cut it to 2-1 in the final minute.

“It was a tough match,” Connor said. “He was a little bit funky. I wasn't getting to my offense real well. He was real tough.”

McGuffey's Luke Shingle also reached 100 career wins Saturday, picking up a 4-0 decision over Burrell's Richard Feroce in their 182-pound match during the WPIAL Class AA semifinals at Chartiers-Houston. The Highlanders fell 42-25 but bounced back with a win over Freedom in the consolation match.
