Kittanning junior Jason Nolf stood above all his opponents for a second consecutive season at the King of the Mountain wrestling tournament in Mill Hall.
Nolf won another tournament title at Central Mountain's annual event, as he defeated Mifflinburg's Cole Walter, 3-1, Saturday in the finals of the 132-pound weight class.
Nolf, the No. 1 seed, pinned his other four opponents.
As a sophomore, Nolf won the 120-pound title and was named Outstanding Wrestler.
No other Kittanning wrestlers reached the medal rounds this year.
Five wrestlers from Redbank Valley went home with hardware.
Aaron Hook took top honors among the Bulldogs, as he defeated North Hunterdon's Liam Korbul, 3-1, in the third-place match at 182 pounds. Hook lost to eventual champion Jose Ortiz of Bethlehem Catholic, 2-1, in the quarterfinals but battled back with three consolation-bracket wins — each by three points or fewer — to reach his medal match.
Ty Haines (145 pounds) and Cole Shirey (160) each placed fourth after reaching the semifinals. Brandon Bailey (170) came back to take sixth after losing his opening bout. And Willie Gruver (113) finished seventh.
Redbank Valley placed 10th in the 33-team tournament with 99½ points. Kittanning finished in 24th with 58 points.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
