Sunday, September 8, 2019 | 9:13 PM
One of the top wrestlers in the A-K Valley chose where he will call home for the next four years Sunday.
Jack Blumer, who is ranked No. 29 among seniors by PA Power Wrestling, announced his intentions to continue his wrestling career at West Virginia via Twitter.
After visiting many great schools and programs, I am happy to announce that I have decided to continue my academic and athletic career at @WVUWrestling ! I’d like to thank coachs Flynn, Moore,Port, & Walters for this great opportunity … Let’s go Mountaineers!! #HailWV pic.twitter.com/bIAlBBS6ru

Blumer went 46-4 last season, finished with 34 pins and placed third at the PIAA tournament in Hershey. He has a 111-25 career record at Kiski Area. Although Blumer had his fair share of individual accomplishments this past season, the 160-pounder also was a major factor in the Cavaliers capturing their third straight WPIAL Class AAA title and a fourth-place finish at the PIAA team tournament.
