Burrell’s Christie savors strength of 100th win

As much as Corey Christie appreciated the individual accomplishment of earning his 100th career victory, he liked the story behind it more.

Christie’s 6-0 decision over Brookville’s Caleb Hetrick helped key Burrell’s 29-27 victory in the PIAA Class AA tournament’s consolation bracket on Friday.

Not only did Christie avenge an earlier loss to Hetrick, but so did Burrell, which lost 39-23 to Brookville last month.

“It’s kind of cool,” said Christie, a Coker College (N.C.) recruit. “Having 100, it’s a lot of wins for a high school career. It’s just a milestone. Beating Hetrick, he’s super good. He’s ranked third or fourth in the state. That just shows I can beat anybody in the state. That was a good confidence booster.”
