At Kiski Area, a school with a proud history of pinners, senior Shane Kuhn now is the king of pancaking opponents.

Kuhn, a heavyweight starter since his freshman season, became the wrestling program's all-time pin leader during the Cavaliers' 49-23 nonsection win over Kittanning on Friday. He needed just 37 seconds to end his bout with Joel Tack and collect his 97th pin, which put him ahead of 2013 graduate and Penn State redshirt freshman Matt McCutcheon.

“It has always been a goal of mine,” Kuhn said. “I thought about it my freshman year, and it seemed so far away. ... It's cool to win it because it was one of my best friends who broke it. We talked about it last year, and we thought I could break it this year. … He still has some records, though.”
