Meyers at Wyoming Area wrestling Wednesday was postponed due to the snowstorm and rescheduled to January 30.

Yesterday Pittston Area was in Bellfonte for the Red Raider Rumble. The Patriots were in Pool B, of four pools, with Midd-West from Middleburg, Snyder County; Fauquier, Virginia and State College High School.

The Patriots wrestled Midd-West at 9 a.m., State College at 12:30 and Fauquier at 2:15. The tourney continued last evening with pool no. 1s, 2s and 3s wrestling in semis leading to championship bouts.

Hazleton was the only other WVC team entered. They were in Pool A with Central Mountain, Hempfield and Lehighton.

On Saturday, January 12 Wyoming Area wrestled at Whitehall in a non-league match, losing 44-31. Winners for WA were Patrick Heck at 106 with a decision; Carmen Mauriello with a major at 126; Andy Schutz with a 24 second pin at 132 and Nick Heck with a pin at 138.

Gabriel Valdez, 145; and Damian Vanderlick, 152 won by forfeits.

In the WVC standings the Patriots are 3-1 in Division 1 behind Dallas (2-0) and Valley West (4-0) who wrestled each other yesterday. Six meets make up the division schedule. The Patriots could wind up tied with Valley West if they win out, but only if Dallas, yesterday, or Berwick, Saturday, beats Valley West. Berwick is 0-3.
