Hidlay Moves Up in State Rankings; Stewart Debuts

| December 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

After his stellar performance at the King of the Mountain tournament, 113-pound freshman Hayden Hidlay has moved up to no. 5 in the latest Pa Power Wrestling Individual rankings.

Hidlay (13-1) was ranked ninth in the preseason rankings at 113, but after an eye-opening exhibition at KOM, where he defeated state-runner up Korbin Myers of Bermudian Springs, the top-ranked 113-pounder in Class AA, and took Parkland’s Ethan Lizak into overtime in the finals; he was bumped up to fifth.

Lizak is first, followed by Scott Parker of Pennridge, Tanner Shoap of Chambersburg, Zach Fuentes of Norristown, and Hidlay.

Making his debut in the rankings is Noah Stewart, another in a trio of talented freshmen in the Husky fold (the other being Brandon Wilson at 145). Stewart is ranked 25th at 126. The Pa Power Rankings rate the top 25 in each weight class.

Stewart has a solid 11-2 mark to start the season.

Lucas Besch, who was rated 19th at 132 in the preseason, dropped out of the rankings.
