Kiski Area's Matt McCutcheon won his second straight Super 32 Challenge wrestling championship Sunday in North Carolina.

The event is one of the country's top offseason tournaments. McCutcheon is the 35th-ranked senior in the country, according to Intermat.

A Penn State recruit, he won a 4-1 decision over Ray O'Donnell of Saucon Valley (Pa.) in the final at Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center.

McCutcheon was 41-1 last season and won Kiski Area's first PIAA championship, at 182 pounds. He set the school record for pins and needs 30 wins to pass 2006 grad Tyler Oravec for the most in school history.
