Another tournament, another gold medal for Jason Nolf.

The Kittanning senior was dominant again in winning the 145-pound title and the Most Outstanding Wrestler award at the 2013 King of the Mountain Tournament on Friday and Saturday at Central Mountain High School.

Nolf won the title with a 22-8 major decision in the final against Cumberland Valley's Patrick Duggan. He pinned two of five opponents, including Burrell's Corey Falleroni, and won his other two matches by a 21-2 technical fall and a 16-8 major decision.

Kittanning's Jacob Robb also made the medal stand in the 195-pound weight class by taking fourth place.

Robb reached the championship bracket quarterfinals before being pinned by eventual champ Tom Sleigh of DuBois, a Bucknell recruit. He rebounded from that loss for another pair of wins to reach the consolation final, where he dropped a close match, 4-2, against Jordan Wertz of Boyertown.

Redbank Valley's Willis Gruver had a pair of achievements on the weekend. Not only did he earn a sixth-place medal in the 120-pound weight class, his earned his 100th career win with his first win in the consolation bracket, a pin of Curtis Decker from Penns Valley.

Gruver's tournament ended with a 2-1 loss in the fifth-place match against South Western's Owen Wherley, the same wrestler who had previously pinned him in the championship bracket.
