The Mifflin County wrestling team has six grapplers still alive after day one of the Conestoga Valley Holiday Wrestling Classic.

The Huskies, currently in 11th place with 65.5 points, have one wrestler in the championship round and five fighting it out in the consolation bracket.

Freshman Noah Stewart (13-2) advanced to the semifinals with a 15-0 technical fall over Donald Smith of Red Lion and a 11-0 whitewashing of Kerry Mega (Hamburg) in the quarters. Stewart will face top-seeded Micah Hight of Cesar Rodney, Delaware in the semis.

Isaac Underhill (120), Joe Knarr (152), Tre Carter (195), Kyle Kahley (220), and Caleb Rhodes (285) are still alive in the consolations. Hayden Hidlay did not participate at 113.

Underhill defeated Alec Pupo of Owen J. Roberts, 3-0, before being pinned in the quarters. In the consolation bracket, Underhill advanced with a 2:19 fall over Kody Cox of Dubois. He will meet David Gates (Manheim Township) this morning.

Knarr earned a 3:55 pin over Marple Newtown’s Anthony Williamson in the opening round, but then dropped a hard-fought 3-2 decision to Parker Eidle of Wilson (West Lawn) to fall into the consolations. Knarr moved on with a 2-0 victory over Nick Hershey (Manheim Township) and will face Tyler Miller of Spring Grove.

The big boys earned their keep this week as all three upper weights are still alive. Carter defeated Ty Treaster (Juniata) 8-4, and then lost a 5-0 match to Austin Knies of Westfield, Virginia. A 3-1 victory over Tyler Robinson (Crestwood) set up today’s meeting with Scott Schreffer of Exeter.

Kahley started things off on a high note with a 9-2 win over Tom McHale of Manheim Township. A loss to second-seed Alex Guinn of Spring Grove dropped the junior into the consolations where he bounced back with a 1-0 victory over Bob Long of Penncrest. Kahley will take on Mechanicsburg’s Lucas Chestnut this morning.

Rhodes opened with a 9-6 victory over Robert Zilhaver (DuBois), lost by fall to Marple Newtown’s James Dever, and pinned Juniata’s Brandon McDonaugh in 2:03 to set up a match with New Oxford’s Brock Hartman.

Juniata has two wrestlers alive in the championship round – Sean Heggs at 138 and Patrick Fitzgerald at 220. Richie Gilson (120) and Adam Barrick (132) are still alive in the wrestlebacks. The Indians are in a seventh place tie with Mechanicsburg with 71 points.

Spring Grove leads in the team scoring with 121.5 points. Rounding out the top five are Owen J. Roberts (99), Westfield, VA (98), Dubois (89) and Wilson (West Lawn) with 80.5 points.
