| October 4, 2015 | 0 Comments

Hayden Hidlay went 4-0 and defeated Mason Manville for the third time on his way to the Journeymen Classic Championship on Sunday.

Hidlay defeated the Penn State bound Manville 3-1 in the 152-pound finals for his second Journeymen title in as many years. Hayden beat Manville twice at the Greco and Freestyle Junior Nationals in Fargo and will face him again at the Who’s No. 1 on October 17 in Lehigh.

Hayden opened with a 1-0 victory over Saegertown’s Nick Monico, a Kent State recruit. He followed that up with a 4-3 victory over two-time state champion Foster Karmon (Michigan) and a 10-3 win over top 50 junior Mekhi Lewis (New Jersey).

Hidlay is ranked fourth overall in the Class of 2016 by Flo Wrestling and 14th overall by Intermat.

At 160, Trent Hidlay went 2-2 and finished fifth.

Trent lost back-to-back bouts to Elijah Cleary (5-2) and A.J. Pedro (4-3) before rallying with wins over Jacob Hart (fall in 4:54) and A.J. Aeberli (3-0 for fifth).

To celebrate what could be a very special season, I will be releasing the 2015-16 Mifflin County Wrestling Preview Magazine.

It’s a must have for every MC wrestling fan.

The cost is $7 and the shipping is free.

To give you an idea of what it will look like I have posted a link to the Mifflin County girls basketball magazine I did for Kevin Kodish back in 2012. Just click on the link below.
