The annual Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic, scheduled for Saturday at Pitt’s Fitzgerald Field House, has been canceled because of the health concerns over coronavirus.

The match pitted a team of United States all-stars against a team of Pennsylvania All-Stars, which were highlighted by WPIAL champions Kurtis Phipps of Norwin, Gerrit Nijenhuis of Canon-McMillan, Sam Hillegas of North Hills and Luke Stout of Mt. Lebanon.

The preliminary match was to feature WPIAL All-Stars facing Maryland.

Organizers indicated they will attempt to reschedule the event and said fans should wait for a final decision.

The committee also thanked the wrestlers, parents and coaches for their patience and understanding.
