Burrell 152-pounder A.J. Corrado turned in a solid performance at the Thomas Chevrolet tournament in Bedford this past weekend, taking home first place with a 4-0 record and four pins.

None of Corrado’s matches got out of the first round.

Corrado was the No. 1-seed heading into the tournament and performed accordingly. He pinned Bedford’s Gavin Habinyak in 1 minute, 11 seconds to secure his first victory, then followed it up with a 23-second pin of Southern Huntingdon County’s Wyatt Campbell.

In his semifinal matchup, he pinned Berlin-Brothersvalley’s Clayton Lee at the 1:31 mark. In his championship match, he pinned Alec Supanick in 43 seconds to take home the title.
