Mifflin County wrestling coach Kirby Martin is looking for a repeat performance or better at the District 6 Class AAA tournament this Saturday in Altoona.

Last year the Huskies pushed 10 wrestlers through to regionals and won the D6 tournament team championship. With 10 wrestlers currently seeded in the top four, Mifflin County could experience deja vu if the seeds hold up.

Hayden Hidlay (138) and Timmy Pearce (195) earned top seeds, while Noah Stewart (152), Brandon Wilson (160) and Trey Hartsock (182) are seeded second. All five come into the tournament state ranked as well. Hidlay (29-2) is fifth, Stewart (28-6) is ninth, Wilson (1-1) is No. 22, Hartsock (24-10) is ranked 23rd and Pearce (26-7) is at No. 24.

Daulton Wilson (126), Isaac Underhill (132), Kyle Kahley (220) and Colton Craig (285) are seeded third. Freshman Noah Myers is is the fourth seed at 113. Kahley was a state qualifier a year ago.

Hidlay, Stewart and Brandon Wilson are returning district champions for Mifflin County. Central Mountain leads all teams with five number one seeds.

Action gets underway at 9 am with the finals slated to start at 7 pm. With only nine teams in AAA, the tournament is now a one-day event.
