Burrell’s wrestling team turned in quite the weekend at Canon-McMillan on Friday and Saturday.

First, the Bucs competed in the Section 3-AA individual tournament Friday. They had four wrestlers win section championships, five were runners-up and two finished in third.

Burrell followed up that performance Saturday with a strong effort at the WPIAL championships. Ian Oswalt (132 pounds) and AJ Corrado (152) both earned WPIAL titles and Mikey Scherer (220) earned a runner-up finish. The Bucs also had two third-place finishers and one fourth-place finisher.
