HERSHEY — Burgettstown’s first trip to the PIAA team wrestling tournament was memorable, but the Blue Devils wanted more.

District 3 champion Hamburg (18-1) used a quick start and rolled to a 46-26 victory in the first round of the Class AA consolations Friday morning at the Giant Center.

The Blue Devils (14-4) only picked up five wins during the match, including pins by Shane Ilgenfritz (106 pounds), Hunter Guiddy (126) and heavyweight Riley Kemper. Joey Sentipal (120) and Shane Kemper (160) had a major decision wins.

Now, the Blue Devils will prepare of the individual tournament, which begins Feb. 14 at Canon-McMillan.

Burgettstown coach Joey Vigliotti said he hopes getting to Hershey will become an annual event for his team.
