They all have won at least one title in the past nine seasons. As championship traditions go, the eighth team in the finals is like the odd man out. Belle Vernon has never won a WPIAL championship, and  the WPIAL has been staging championships since 1914. Belle Vernon will try to win its first title when it plays Blackhawk in the Class AAA championship Tuesday night at Consol Energy Field in Washington.

Derry Area wrestler Jimmy Gulibon is in Hershey this weekend, trying to make history. The Derry senior is trying to become only the 10th wrestler in Pennsylvania to win four state titles. If Gulibon wins, this one would probably mean the most, simply because of what he overcame this season. Flash back to late December, when Gulibon was wrestling in the finals of the Powerade Tournament. He won, but sustained a left knee injury. Gulibon, and some others, thought the injury might be serious. They thought it might be an ACL tear. “He was very scared because he never even really had an injury before,” said Derry coach Mike Weinell. “We didn’t know at the time how serious it was. Jimmy just knew he couldn’t do what he does. He couldn’t push off his foot or his leg.”

PIAA Individual Wrestling Championships – Day One
A remarkable forty of the WPIAL’s forty-two Class AAA wrestlers survived the first day of wrestling and will again be in action Friday afternoon at the 2012 PIAA Wrestling Championships at the GIANT Center in Hershey. With three WPIAL wrestlers entered in each of the fourteen weight classes in the Class AAA brackets, twenty-seven won first round bouts Thursday afternoon to advance to the quarterfinals. Thirteen of the fifteen wrestlers losing in the first round turned around and won their first round consolation matches to remain alive in the tournament. The WPIAL was perfect in five weight classes, advancing all three of its AAA wrestlers at 106, 126, 160, 182 and 285 pounds. Only the 220-pound bracket saw all three wrestlers drop their first round match. But Pine-Richland’s Ben Balish, Canon-McMillan’s Alex Campbell, and Greensburg Salem’s Tanner Hahn all bounced back to win their first round consolation bouts.
