Mifflin County head coach Kirby Martin couldn’t have asked for a better start to the District 6 Class AAA tournament.

The Huskies, one of the favorites to win the event, advanced 11 of 13 wrestlers into the semifinal round, which begins at 11 am tomorrow.

One of the keys to winning tournaments is scoring bonus points and Mifflin County did just that, getting the bonus in all nine contested victories. Noah Stewart (126) and Brandon Wilson (145) advanced on byes.

Daulton Wilson (106), Hayden Hidlay (113), Isaac Underhill (120), Kevin Bair (138), Joe Knarr (152), Drew Hannon (195), Kyle Kahley (220) and Caleb Rhodes (285) all scored falls, while Lucas Besch (132) won by a 12-2 major.

Hannon, who came into the tournament 0-3, had the biggest upset so far, pinning Loc Long, the No. 3 seed from Central Mountain, in 1:29.

Darion Pierce (160) and Keith Corson (170) lost in the quarterfinal round and dropped into the consolations.

Mifflin County leads the team race after day one with 68 points.
