A large quantity of gold medals might end up in the Alle-Kiski Valley area Saturday night as numerous local wrestlers advanced to the semifinals of the WPIAL Class AA individual championships Friday.

Burrell, Kittanning and Valley each have three representatives in the semifinals, which begin at 11:30 a.m. at Chartiers Valley High School. And Highlands' Nolan Wise also stands just one win away from an appearance in the finals.

For Valley, Josiah Hughes (120 pounds), Pat Dewitt (126) and Terrell Fields (182) each remain in contention for titles. Hughes, a No. 2 seed, won his only bout of the day, 4-2. Dewitt, a No. 1 seed and returning champion, secured a pinfall in his only match. And Fields, a returning runner-up, pinned both of his opponents.

Phil Marra (145), Dakota DesLauriers (182) and Al Beattie (285) are semifinalists for Burrell. Marra, a No. 2 seed, advanced with an 11-4 decision and a pin. DesLauriers, a No. 1 seed and defending champion, pinned his only foe in 45 seconds. Beattie, a No. 2 seed, had two pins.

Jason Nolf (132), Taylor Jack (152) and Zac Croyle (195) can earn championships for Kittanning. Nolf, a No. 1 seed and returning champion, pinned his only opponent. Jack, a No. 2 seed, started with a pin and then won his quarterfinal, 7-4. Croyle, a No. 2 seed, secured two pins.

Wise won by pinfall in the first round and then prevailed, 8-5, in the quarterfinals.
