Moon, Quaker Valley could form wrestling co-op

Quaker Valley student-athletes interested in wrestling could have an opportunity to do so this season.

Moon Area school board members last week approved a cooperative agreement that would allow Quaker Valley wrestlers to join its program.

The agreement isn't a done deal yet.

Quaker Valley school board members will discuss and consider the co-op at meetings this month, district spokeswoman Tina Vojtko said.

If approved, the agreement would include the upcoming wrestling season and 2013-14. Moon competes in Class AAA Section 4A.

Wrestling could be the third co-op agreement for Quaker Valley, which has agreements for swimming and diving with Sewickley Academy and last year approved a football agreement with Cornell that began this season.

The WPIAL website lists eight of the 86 participating schools as having a co-op agreement for wrestling, including Avonworth and Hopewell.
