Huskies Look to Claim Crown at Ultimate Warrior Tournament

| January 26, 2018 | 0 Comments

Mifflin County closes out the week with a stop at the Ultimate Warrior Tournament at West Branch High School Friday and Saturday.

This is the Huskies second visit to the event after placing fifth a year ago. Trent Hidlay won the 170-pound title last year defeating Brinton Simington of Altoona by technical fall. Christian Fisher placed fourth at 106, while Logan Wise was seventh at 132.

A total of 31 teams – nine in Class AAA and 22 in Class AA – converge on Allport with the hopes of bringing home a team title. The Huskies, Wilson Area, and Bald Eagle Area are the only state-ranked teams in the event. The District 11 school is No. 17 in the Class AA rankings, while BEA is no. 19 and Mifflin County is No. 22 in Class AAA. Also, 58 wrestlers in the tourney are ranked in the Top 25 in the state in their respective classes.

Mifflin County features three ranked wrestlers – Trent Hidlay (No. 1 at 182), Trey Kibe (No. 9 at 152), and Christian Fisher (No. 13 at 113). Hidlay will wrestle at 170.

Look for the Huskies, Wilson Area, Greater Latrobe, St. Joseph’s Academy, BEA, and Mount Union to battle for the team title. Altoona won the Ultimate Warrior last year.
