Quaker Valley youth wrestlers flourishing
TribLIVE Sports Videos
In its second year of existence, the Quaker Valley youth wrestling team is finding unprecedented success each weekend at meets throughout the region. Although the boys are accustomed to coming home with hardware from Open meets, where each wrestler is competing for an individual trophy, this season has been highlighted by team wins in dual and team competitions.
Feb. 9 was a special day in program history, when Quaker Valley youth wrestling hosted its first wrestling meet in program history. Facing off against Burgettstown, Seneca Valley and Beaver, among the best competition in the region, the boys earned a resounding victory by besting the competition in 58 percent of the matches at the high school.
“It was an exciting day for Quaker Valley wrestling, and our boys really showed incredible toughness and passion for the sport,” coach Jason Richey said. “We are thrilled to have such a strong wrestling foundation. This team is going to do great things as these boys grow and mature into scholastic wrestlers.”
The youth team consists of boys ages 5-12. Ten QV students are taking advantage of a co-op, which allows seventh-12th graders to wrestle for Moon.
